The boathouse was designed by John Oldrid Scott, 2nd son of George Gilbert Scott, and completed in 1880. Shortly after its construction it was burnt out in 1881, but rebuilt to its original designs in 1884. Its listed Grade II status probably derives in part from its connections with the Gilbert Scott family of architects but also from its contribution to the history of the development of boathouses in the late 19th century. Early history in college rowing depended on the use of rowing 'barges' of which very few now survive. The University College Boathouse was one of the early examples of the move of the boathouse onto dry land. Rather ironically in1999 the boathouse was once again subject to fire which effectively destroyed it and has led to these proposals to remove what is left and rebuild on the same site, but in a contemporary design.
