Enter the main entrance of FAU (the one with the big neon sign) located on Glades Road entering campus on Broward Ave (NW 10th street). Proceed about 1/2 mile straight into campus. You will pass soccer fields on the left hand side. When you get to the stop light inside campus, take a left. You will see the baseball stadium to the left, adjacent to the pool. Park in that lot. Walk to the one story, flat-roofed patio area (Field House). The first pool you come through after the patio is the Teaching Pool and the location of our classes.

.April parking fees:  Parking for Week-day classes at the Main Aquatic Center.

You know the drill, parking on campus. Our goal is to make this as easy as possible. As you know by now there are only 4 parking meters left in lot 15. They are first come first serve. There are plenty of blue lot parking spaces available in front of the pool. 

To make things convenient for you I suggest that you buy a monthly pass for April, which covers you for 28 days. (approx. $3.00 per day).

The easiest way to purchase the parking pass is online. 

You can also purchase one at the main FAU entrance kiosk, to the right as you enter FAU from Glades Road, though there may be a line of cars ahead of you. You will need your drivers license, license plate number and registration.

Single coin operated Meters are available for visitors coming to our campus for short periods of time. However there are lonely 4 meters at the pool parking lot. 

Also, last year some parents parked without a permit and never received a ticket. Several did receive tickets . However, this is no guarantee that you will not receive a ticket if you do not park at the coin meter or purchase a temporary pass. The choice is yours. If you do receive a ticket the $25 cost will be your responsibility. Note: We have noticed that the parking lot north of the pool/behind the gym seems to be patrolled much less by the meter maids.
If there is a big event on a particular day and the lot is full you can park either in front of or behind the FAU gymnasium just to the north of the pool.

Week-day parking fees for the entire summer beginning May 1:

May 1- Sept. 4 th, 2018 Greatly reduced summer week-day parking fees, purchased through the swim school.  

Purchase a summer FAU decal through the Lifestyle Swim School only as we have made special arrangements with the parking department. The fee will be $25.00 for the entire summer, May 1- September 4th (Labor Day). You will receive a rear window decal for the blue lot #15 which is situated in front of the main pool.

For the week-day students starting in May, on the first day of class bring your tag number, drivers license along with $25.00. We will have you fill out a FAU parking form. We will gather all the forms together and take them to the FAU Parking department for you and give you a parking sticker when they are ready.

Parking on the university campus is regulated and comes under the jurisdiction of the University Traffic and Parking Enforcement. Tickets are issued thru that department. You will be responsible for paying your own tickets, if you choose not to purchase the summer parking pass.

The lot the swim school uses is LOT #15, in front of the pool.

Week-end classes:

Week-end classes will be held at the AD Henderson Pool. A new heater has been installed.

At this point FAU does not charge for parking on the week-ends.

Directions to Florida Atlantic University A.D. Henderson University School Pool (east side of campus 1 block north of 20th street and the Presidents Mansion)

The week-end classes are held at the A.D. Henderson University School pool on the east side of the Florida Atlantic University campus. When entering from Glades Road while driving east from I-95, turn left into FAU at the last campus entrance on Florida Atlantic Blvd (NW 13th street), the one furthest east. You will drive about 2/3 mile until you see the stop light. About 100 yards straight past the stop light you will see the school on the right hand side of the road.
Take a right hand turn into the schools drive way. Continue straight down the driveway to near the end and turn left into the rear parking lot. Even though it says “faculty only” it is OK for us to park there on week-ends and evenings.
Park near the green dumpsters.
Use the rear gate entrance into the school yard. Just pull on the gate to open. After passing through the gate, take a left on the covered sidewalk and follow it along the pool fence and it will lead you to the pool entrance.
The Henderson school is normally closed on the weekends. Please do not enter the actual school building, as we are not permitted inside. However, the pool area does have locker rooms which are available to us.

On rare occasions the lot is full, in this case additional parking spaces are available in front of the school in lot 26 A or across the street.  Sometimes we compete for parking spaces with the folks using the soccer fields, especially Saturdays.
