OKC Boathouse District

University of Central Oklahoma Boathouse

The University of Central Oklahoma Boathouse serves as home to the UCO women’s rowing team. It also includes a live music venue and an art gallery, establishing it as a unique presence “where art meets the river” in the Boathouse District on the Oklahoma River. The boathouse includes private event space which can be used for weddings, business meetings and other gatherings.

“The vision behind the Boathouse District development always involved creating innovative facilities and programs that complement one another, working together to create a dynamic, world class environment unique to Oklahoma City,” said Mike Knopp, executive director of the RIVERSPORT Foundation. “The UCO Boathouse perfectly advances this vision by introducing the arts to the Boathouse District and helping solidify the Oklahoma River as a destination for the entire community.”

After a generous donation by MidFirst Bank to the University of Central Oklahoma Foundation in January 2013, funding for the boathouse was completed and the boathouse opened in April 2015. A MidFirst ATM is located outside the boathouse for guests’ convenience.

Originally known as the CHK|Central Boathouse, the name was updated to UCO Boathouse in 2021.
