Where to find us

This page describes the easiest way to get the the University College Boat House. If you need to contact the boat club, you can find details on how to do so in the committee section.

University College Boathouse is conveniently located on the south bank of the Isis (River Thames), directly opposite the row of College Boathouses that make up Boathouse Island.

To get to the boathouse from the High Street entrance of University College:

  • Walk along the High Street towards the City Centre
  • Turn left at Carfax Tower and walk south past Christ Church College along St Aldate's
  • Crossing the river over Folly Bridge, turn left immediately onto the towpath
  • Follow the towpath to University College Boathouse

During Michaelmas and Hilary, the Men's and Women's first VIII either train at Caversham next to the GB rowing team or at Godstow to get away from the traffic on the Isis:
