SUNDAY, JULY 22, 2018: Due to an unforeseen electrical circuit repair, the McCarthy Pool in Yates Field House is closed until further notice.

The nature of the identified issue requires a thorough examination and we are working diligently with the Georgetown University facility staff to ensure a timely fix. We apologize for the inconvenience.



Please note that every August, Yates Field House closes for up to two weeks to complete maintenance projects, facility updates, and general cleaning and refreshing of the facility.

The dates of the August Maintenance Closing will be communicated at the beginning of the summer via emails, website announcements, and facility signage.

2018 August Maintenance Closure:
Saturday, August 4 - Sunday, August 19, 2018

As we have in the past, Yates has again partnered with the GU Law Center to provide fitness and aquatic services during this time. New this year, we are also partnering with the University of the District of Columbia to provide aquatic services.

More information about the closure, including how to sign up for alternate facility use.
