Alumni Wang Pool to close for renovation on March 27

On March 27, the Alumni Wang pool will be closed for renovations. The rest of the Alumni Wang fitness areas will remain open, although MIT Recreation cited the possibility of disruptions.

The pool, constructed in 1941, requires extensive repairs that will last from eight to eleven months. According to an email from MIT Recreation, the work will encompass replacement of tiles on the pool deck, installation of a desiccant dryer system in the basement, and other measures to ensure continued use of the pool. 

Temporary membership accommodations will be made available to those who swim regularly at the pool, including waived cancellation fees and the ability to rent a locker at the Zesiger Center or DuPont facilities for no additional cost.
