Dundee University Boat Club is not just one of the hardest working and passionate student clubs in the country, but also the University itself. Founded by a small group of medics in 1991, the club has grown from a small presence on campus to one of the most successful: winning Club of the Year in 2017/18, 2018/19, 2020/21, and 2021/22, the Victor Ludorum trophy at Scottish Rowing Indoor Championships, members being elected to Sports Union Exec and our Club President being crowned Volunteer of the Year for 2019/20.
Based on the banks of the River Tay near Perth, we are an ambitious student-run club, welcoming all, no matter your rowing ability. Whether a prospective student, alumni, or supporter, we encourage you to get in contact and stay up to date with all of our successes to come.

Dundee University Boat Club has offered me so much in my time at University. Despite the unpredictable and uncertain times of the last 18 months, DUBC has been able to provide support and consistency through the turmoil of the pandemic. I came to this sport in freshers week at University having never set foot in a rowing boat before and now I have the privilege of being President for this club. DUBC has only been around for 30 years, we are pretty new on the scene compared to the older more established clubs but this doesn't mean that we have not been able to make a splash and don’t strive to do so each and every season. Part of this is our well known tartan kit! Our relatively unique student lead committee means we are extremely dedicated to providing the best experience that is specifically tailored to our student membership base. Whether you are new to the sport or a seasoned rower we have something to offer you and welcome you to our tartan family!
