UC-Berkeley Hearst Gym 200 Hearst Gymnasium , Bekeley, CA94720 Cal's physical education classes (distinct from recreational or intercollegiate sports) are headquartered in…More this campus architectural treasure, designed by Julia Morgan, architect of Hearst Castle. Cal patroness Phoebe Hearst (William Randolph's mother) felt it was important that a female architect build what was originally Cal's gymnasium for women. The building is showing its age, but its marble-lined pools and deck are still open for recreational swimming, swim classes and sunbathing. Until 1979, when the facility went co-ed, patrons were required to wear campus-issued one-piece flapper-style swimsuits, complete with modesty panels, that were boiled after each wearing to help keep germs out of the interstices of the pools' marble lining. These suits took on a lot of water, so it was impossible to swim very fast while wearing them. The small West Pool, also marble-lined, opens off the women's locker room and is for women only. It's popular with older women for water-exercise classes. There's also a women's-only clothing-optional sun deck. The building also has plenty of old-school exercise rooms, including two with sprung floors for dance classes. Men's and women's lockers are available for rent per semester. Visit the website for recreational swim hours at Cal's four pools, including Hearst.
