The pool at LightHouse Commons is our newest on campus amenity on the Thomas Edison Campus and is open to all students! Our resort style pool is almost like three pools in one with a zero-depth entry, swim lanes, and areas designed for fun and relaxation. There is also a large deck area for sun bathing (and studying), a water volleyball court, as well as future space for grilling.


LightHouse Commons Pool Location

The LightHouse Commons pool is located right next to the on-campus residence hall.
