Borchert Hall is a building on campus which houses the school's Olympic sized swimming pool. It is named after Greendale Community College's founder Russell Borchert. like the Luis Guzman statue, it is yet another attempt by Dean Pelton and the board of administrators to seem more like a "real" school. An obscene amount of money was spent to build an Olympic-size swimming pool on campus housed inside the hall which the Dean makes every effort to let everyone know about. Its first indoor appearance was in the Season One episode "Advanced Criminal Law".
Pierce "rows" his boat out of Borchert Hall. The name can be seen reflected in the glass doors across the walkway. This must be a different entrance to the hall than that across from the Library as it has pillars and a sliding garage door.
Borchert Hall has not only an Olympic-size swimming pool but also a judges' booth that cost the school 6,000 dollars according to Dean Pelton. It also has lockers and showers available for student and faculty use. The entrance to the pool can be seen in various episodes throughout the seasons as it is located in front of the back entrance to the school's library.
The entrance to Borchert Hall seen in various episodes was actually a redressed entranceway to Paramount Stage 27. This set is located directly across from Paramount Stage 31 where "Community" was once filmed.
