Completed in January of 2009, the Kansas Rowing Boathouse sits near the Kansas River in Lawrence's Burcham Park. The 14,000 square foot facility was dedicated on February 28, 2009 with Athletics Director Lew Perkins calling the boathouse "the most satisfying building that I've ever been involved with."
Built to withstand a flood event of eight feet, the boathouse can house 65 boats at a time in the lower level storage area.
With a 90-locker team locker room and a 50-locker public locker room, the boathouse accommodates both the Kansas women's rowing team and the Kansas Crew Club.
Also sporting a full kitchen and catering room, the boathouse provides a great place for rowers to congregate during the season and the 2,000 square foot multi-functional team room provides a place for the team to build camaraderie.
The boathouse also has a second level deck that allows rowers to spend time outside before practice.
Construction for the boathouse was funded in large part by a special student activities fee ratified by the University's student body in 2006.
