Lejeune Hall is one of the many impressive athletic facilities at the United  States Naval Academy. This fine swimming and wrestling complex is  named after the 13th Commandant of the Marine Corps, Lieutenant  General John Archer Lejeune, a member of the Naval Academy Class of  1888. It is the first building at the academy to be named for a Marine  Corps officer. Although the 1982-built, $13.5-million building is completely  modern in conception and materials, its regularly placed columns and  raised roof area compliment the traditional turn of the century French  Renaissance style campus with its vocabulary of granite walls and  mansard roofs. The facility provides the U.S. Naval Academy with one of  the world's finest facilities for all competitive swimming, diving and  water  polo events in intercollegiate, U.S. Swimming and Diving and  Olympic  categories.

 The large pool is 25 meters-by-50 meters with an eight-foot depth. A  movable bulkhead enables the team to train at any distance. The  bulkhead may be moved to the end of the pool and hoisted out of the  water to storage in the ceiling for 50 meter competition. The pool  provides 23 25-meter short course lanes or 10 50-meter long course  lanes. Deep water, wide lanes and the latest gutter technology available  makes  the Lejeune Pool one of the fastest competitive facilities in  existence.
 The pool underwent a nearly $11 million renovation in the fall of 2012. I  Included among the list of upgrades to the facility were: installed a  Daktronics 10mm video board display and swim / dive scoring system;  replaced pool filtration, circulation, and chlorination systems; replaced all  tile in the pools and on pool decks; replaced HVAC system; repainted the  walls; replaced the movable bulkhead in the lap pool and replaced the  glazed glass in both skylights.

 The diving well also saw extensive renovations to it take place in the  summer of 2009 season as the building�s original diving tower was torn  down and replaced by a new one. The over $1 million project featured  new 1 and 3-meter springboard areas, as well as the construction of new  5, 7.5 and 10-meter platform areas. Over 100-yards of concrete form the  new cantilevered tower, with glass handrails connecting walkways to each  of the diving sections. The diving pool is 60-feet-by-52-feet with depths  varying from 14-17 feet. There is a powerful bubbler system under each  level and a trampoline-dry land board port-a-pit apparatus located on the  pool deck to assist in training. In addition, the diving wall has three  underwater observation windows.

 The gallery around the pool seats 1,000 spectators in comfortable  armchair seats. The spectator galleries are in close proximity to the  swimming and diving pools which provides for exciting competition.  Another 500 spectators can be seated in portable bleachers on the pool  deck.
