University Plunge:

5:00pm – 7:00pm


Are you associated with a college or university in Philadelphia? Then this is the plunge for you!


Come join the Philadelphia collegiate community at The University Plunge starting at 5:00pm. After you and your peers jump into a freezin’ pool, you will start your defrost process in an onsite locker room. In addition to the main attraction, there will be music, food, and much more.

*Please note that the locker rooms are also used by Drexel University students and staff. We encourage you to keep your belongings with you and leave them with a friend while you plunge. There are day-of lockers available at a first-come, first-serve basis that you are welcome to use. Special Olympics PA - Philadelphia and Drexel University are not responsible for any items left unattended in the locker rooms.

Plunging not your thing? It’s okay to be Too Chicken. You can also join us on plunge day to watch your peers brave the cold waters!

 For more information, please call Eric at 610-630-9450, ext. 229. The plunge is open to the public and all spectators are welcome free of charge.
