XCEL Athletic Lifestyle is an exclusive, Rooftop Athletic Club serving up a healthier lifestyle. They have a pool for adults and kids as well as swim lessons. Unfortunately, this isn’t free, and you would need a membership or join classes to attend.
Stevens Students, Faculty and Staff may utilize Open Lap Swim hours for lap swimming free of charge by presenting their valid Stevens ID to the lifeguard on the pool deck. But the public can purchase a monthly membership as well. Membership options and pricing can be found here.
