Built in the late 1960s, the facility is an eight-lane, 25-yard pool with depths ranging from four-and-half to 13 feet. There is one three-meter diving stand as well as a one-meter stand. The venue has not yielded a home loss in four years for Towson's four-time defending CAA champion women's swimming & diving team.
In 2001, the building underwent a $200,000 renovation, replacing the filtration systems. The seating was upgraded to accommodate over 200 spectators.
In 2004, an upgrade brought a brand-new timing and scoreboard system. This included stainless steel touch pads and two LED Daktronics scoreboards. In 2006, new custom KDI Paragon Starter's Platforms were installed by Recreonics sporting the Tigers' logo.
The pool is also home to the Tigerfish Aquatic Club, age group and masters swim teams, and the Maryland Senior Olympics. All of the pool's operations are handled by Head Coach Pat Mead and his staff.
Additional renovations to Burdick Hall and the team locker rooms are ongoing, making the facility one of the premier natatoriums in the CAA and metropolitan Baltimore area.
