College Punt

The College Punt is moored at the Cherwell Boathouse on Bardwell Road, which is a short walk from Kellogg.

The punt is available to all College members for the season, which this year runs from 16 March to 20 October 2024 (it may be available the following week, depending on the weather. Please check the booking form for exact dates). You can book the punt from 10.00 am until dusk, with the latest return time changing as the days get longer, and then shorter again.

The College does not charge for the use of the College Punt but a charge may be levied by the Cherwell Boathouse under their conditions of use, for example if equipment is lost or the punt is returned after the return time.

Rowing boats or canoes may be supplied in place of punts on request, if available and at the discretion of the staff.

The punt must be booked in advance and College members must take their University Card with them to Cherwell Boathouse on the day of their booking, as College ID, along with their booking confirmation email.

Kellogg Alumni are required to bring a printed-out version of their booking confirmation email in the absence of a University Card.
