Located just east of the McKale Center, the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center was once known as McKale Pool, but was refurbished in 1989 thanks to a generous contribution made by local businessman William G. Hillenbrand. A grandstand topped with a bright blue canopy was constructed above the lobby with a seating capacity of approximately 600. Since the grandstand is located on the south side, the canopy provides almost complete protection from the Arizona sun. The grandstand is an ideal vantage point in the short course competition because the student-athletes swim toward and away from the spectators.
