The DeWolfe Boathouse is the most recent boathouse to occupy space on the banks of the storied Charles River. It has served as the home of the Boston University men's and women's crews since its formal dedication on October 23, 1999.
The Boathouse, named in honor of the grandparents of Boston University trustee Richard DeWolfe, is located on the Cambridge side of the Charles River. It has both an interior and exterior balcony that affords racing fans an excellent view of the annual Head of the Charles Regatta as well as a spectacular view of the city of Boston and Boston University skylines.
In fact, the boathouse is situated at the starting line for the Head of the Charles, a junction of the two longest straight stretches of the river. Furthermore, it is only 500 meters downstream from the finish line of the 2,000-meter race course used by the local universities.
Rowers also have access to a 16-person tank room conveniently located on West Campus, adjacent to the team workout room and the varsity weight room.
