Trinity maintains a Punt Scheme, which is open both to members of College and to members of the general public. The punts are located off the Avenue, on the east side of the Cam next to Garret Hostel Lane (just east of New Court). Punts are available for hire each year from the Thursday before Easter (Maundy Thursday) until mid-October. The Punt House usually opens each day at 11 am (Mon – Fri) and 10 am (Weekends). Hiring finishes at 5.30 pm. and punts must be returned by 6.30 pm. each day. Only members of the College may hire punts overnight, by prior arrangement with the Punt Keeper.
