At the University of Oklahoma, low attendance has been attributed to the swim complex being difficult to find and having out-dated 1960s features and lockers. Currently, the university does not offer varsity aquatics due to the lack of a first class facility. Given a new state-of-the-art aquatics facility with strong visual appeal and the right features for both competitive and recreational swimming, OU is looking at offering women’s aquatic sports, state championships, and a community aquatic hub.
The University of Oklahoma Feasibility Study determined options for replacing the outdated aquatic facility with a state-of-the-art aquatic center. Options were shared with the student body via a student referendum, and the consulting team was hired to renovate the existing student recreation center.
