About us

RHULBC enables students to start or continue rowing in a university setting. Now based at Eton Excelsior Rowing Club, we primarily focus on single-oar (sweep) rowing, and students will have the opportunity to row in crews of 2, 4 and 8. We're really excited to utilise the training infrastructure at our new host club so we can see some great results and satisfied athletes. We aim to give everyone as much race experience as possible, so at the start of the year we'll outline events to train for and devise a race calendar aiming to incorporate important on and off water training around everyone's timetables as best we can.

Rowing provides appropriately challenging competition, camaraderie, and the chance to get really fit on the River Thames. It's a new chapter for us, so there will be lots more exciting information to follow. Keep your eyes peeled on our social media!

Membership

Membership is paid termly. Each student has access to EERC's boats and facilities, as well as rowing machines during allocated hours at RHUL's Sports Centre. This transition period means discussions about costs of membership, transport to and from EERC and kit and race entries continue.

We'll keep you updated, because some costs may be amalgamated so as to simplify things. Rest assured though, we want it to be as cheap and fuss-free as possible so you guys can get involved without concern.

Previously, it was £125 per term so this year's fees should be close or cheaper. If you learn you're more suited to coxing, your membership should be a single instalment - previously £50. We hope to offer you the chance to row non-competitively, but nothing's certain yet.

We'll let you know the price if and when we can. Like for other clubs, RHUL gym membership is separate.
