Devon Boathouse

Home of OCU Rowing and Canoe/Kayak • OKC National High Performance Center

Oklahoma City University welcomes you to the Devon Boathouse, the newest structure to grace the banks of the Oklahoma River. The $10 million facility is the home of OCU Rowing and Canoe/Kayak and headquarters for the OKC National High Performance Center. The OKC National High Performance Center provides training opportunities for Olympic hopefuls in both rowing and canoe/kayak. Learn how you can workout at this world-class facility [more]. 

Designed for OCU by Rand Elliott, Elliott & Associates Architects, the Devon Boathouse is one in a series of iconic boathouses in the Boathouse District at the Oklahoma River in Oklahoma City. Its dramatic architecture creates a striking image against the backdrop of Oklahoma City’s downtown skyline and creates the impression of the boathouse’s “prow” breaking the river’s edge. 

Soaring spaces created by glass and polycarbonate walls are flooded with natural light and include a two-story boat bay and the Ann Lacy Event Center. Expansive windows offer unparalleled views of the Oklahoma River and a second story balcony overlooks the boat bay ramps and docks. Blue LED lights accent the exterior of the boathouse at night, adding to the dramatic images of the Chesapeake Boathouse and OGE Together Lightscape already gracing the river.

Oklahoma City University would like to thank the following donors for their generous support: Devon Energy, Ann Lacy, the Gaylord Foundation, St. Anthony Hospital, Cox Communications and OGE. In addition, OCU thanks Concept 2, makers of the world’s leading indoor rowing machines, for sponsoring the self-propulsion lab. For information about supporting the Devon Boathouse and associated programs as members of the Admiral’s Club, please contact Mike Knopp.
