The College Punts

The punting season is now open!



The College keeps two punts at Cherwell Boathouse, on Bardwell Road in North Oxford. One is available for the whole season from Saturday 19 March to Sunday 16 October. The second punt is available only during Trinity Term from Sunday 24 April to Saturday 18 June


Who can book the punts?

All College members can book the punts, free of charge.

[Please note that whilst we have two punts for Trinity, you are only allowed to book one punt at a time to keep it fair for all to have a chance to book.] 

When are the punts available?

The punting season runs from the end of March to mid-October, and the punts can be booked from 10:00 to dusk (20:00/21:00/22:00 depending). The boathouse will be closed in adverse weather. You can book for time slots of between 2 and 4 hours.
