Merton has three punts, which are available to borrow for a slot of up to 3 hours throughout Trinity Term and the summer vacation. They are not available outside of these times, and must not be taken out when the river is “red flagged”. Keys (after booking) can be collected from the main College Lodge, and the punts are kept on the water at the back of Manor Place (behind the end house). The punts are jointly managed by the JCR and MCR through their respective Admirals of the Fleet.

Further information, and the booking system, can be found on JCR Website.
