RUMSBC, the Royal free, University College and Middlesex Boat Club, is the rowing club attached to UCL medical school. Initially formed in 1997 following the amalgamation of the Royal Free, Middlesex and UCH rowing clubs, the club has gone from strength to strength with much success on the Tideway every year. RUMSBC is one of the largest sports clubs within UCL medical school with over 60 members. Rowing from the University of London boat house in Chiswick, the club competes in events organised by the United Hospitals (UH), competing against other medical schools and the vetinary college based in London.
