Housed in the Goergen Athletic Center, the Speegle-Wilbraham Aquatic Center was named form Roman Leo Speegle and Hazel Wilbraham, two of the exemplary teachers in Rochester's vibrant history. Speegle an exemplary coach and teacher at the University (1926 - 1963), will long be remembered for his warmth and good spirit and for the sportsmanship and skill he represented and passed on to generations of students. Wilbraham teacher and friend at the University (1927 - 1957), will be remembered for her vibrant personality and unquenchable honor made life in the cooperative dormitories and on the playing fields an unforgettable part of her students' education. The Speegle-Wilbraham Aquatic Center has been the home pool of over 100 All-American honorees from the University of Rochester men's and women's swimming and diving teams.

The Aquatic Center had the honor of hosting the inaugural University Athletic Association (UAA) swimming and diving championships in 1987-88 and is a regular host site for the Liberty League Championships. In the summer of 2012, the pool underwent a major renovation including a re-surfacing of the pool, updated locker rooms, and a state of the art filtration system. Features of the Speegle-Wilbraham Aquatics Center include:
