Student Punt Scheme Members 2020

The student scheme runs each year from April to March. Check if your college is a member this year and then make the most of your discounted boat hire. If your college isn’t on the list and you'd like it to be, then you can speak to your JCR or MCR and request that they contact our Bookings Team.
