Through a generous donation from alumnus Gary Rogers and the hard work from the Friends of Cal Crew, T. Gary Rogers Rowing Center opened for the Golden Bear men's and women's crew programs in the fall of 2004. The facility is a three-building campus on a property that is three times the size of the former site. The boathouse offers five boat bays and a training space that can accommodate multiple crews.
The center is located on the Oakland Estuary, at 2999 Glascock St. in Oakland, about eight miles from the Cal campus.
The T. Gary Rogers Rowing Center replaces the storied Ky Ebright Boathouse, which was built more than a century ago. The preserved and restored front half of the Ky Ebright Boathouse serves as an inspirational link to the past and a museum of sorts. Many Olympic gold medalists, world champion and national champion crews have trained at the Ky Ebright Boathouse at one time. It is believed that the boathouse is home to more Olympic gold medalists than any other facility in the world.
