University of London Boat Club (ULBC or UL) is the rowing club at the University of London, covering all the university's constituent Colleges (although many of these have their own boat club also). The club has its boat house on the River Thames in Chiswick, London, United Kingdom. Due to its success it is considered, alongside Oxford University Boat Club and Cambridge University Boat Club as one of the most successful university rowing clubs in Britain.
