Legacy of Success

The team has been winning races since the 1970’s. We have some photos from these legendary and current crews in our gallery.


UChicago Crew is a coed sports club at the University of Chicago. It is one of the largest clubs on campus, sporting around 50 athletes competing each season across four squads. The team participates in major regattas across the world, from the Head of the Charles in Cambridge, Massachusetts to La Traversee de Paris in Paris, France. Practices are held 6 days a week, with 4-5 being held at the beautiful Eleanor Boathouse at Park 571 on the Chicago River. Practices during the winter months are held in Henry Crown Field House. No previous experience is required in joining.
