Robert M. Gillin, Jr. Boathouse
The Robert M. Gillin, Jr. Boathouse was dedicated in June of 2002 as the new home of Saint Joseph's University men's and women's rowing teams. It is the newest and largest facility located in Philadelphia.
The 15,540 square foot state-of-the-art boathouse includes four heated boat bays with capacity for 42 eights, 14 fours/quads, and 14 small boats.
The Boathouse sits on 20,381 square feet of land at the 1,000-meter mark of the famed Schuylkill River race course. The 750- square foot deck is a perfect viewing area for our families, fans, and alumni.
The second floor of the boathouse includes locker rooms, showers, etc as well as a large common area for ergs, team meetings, video review and yoga.
The Gillin Boat Club joined the Schuylkill Navy on September 20, 2004, by unanimous vote of the delegates of the Schuylkill Navy's 10 member clubs.
