Rowing is a beautiful sport with a strong association with University studies and life. Pavia is a city on a river (the river Ticino) and the University of Pavia has a strong rowing tradition, which includes an annual race with the University of Pisa taking place alternatively in Pisa on the river Arno or in Pavia on the river Ticino. Collegio Volta has a first class rower, Corrado Regalbuto, who is a College undergraduate student in Medicine and a member of the University Sport Club (CUS) and the national eight with coxswain (8+) and four without coxswain ($-) squads. The College expects that the presence in College of an athlete of the calibre of Corrado Regalbuto may encourage other students to take up rowing. The purpose of the Volta Rowing Club  (VROC) is to assist this process by promoting rowing events in College by organising meetings, seminars, movies and any other activity that may encourage rowing among Volta students.

The following students enrolled in the VROC for the academic year 2021/22.  Corrado Regalbuto has agreed to act as Club Secretary and coach for the students enrolled.

The construction of the new College wing on the North front (due to open in October 2014) has appreciably reduced the surface of the College grounds. The College, nevertheless, is left with ~ 7,500 sqm of College green and needs to develop this resource in the best possible way. The purpose of the Volta Garden Club (VGAC) aims to promote ideas and discussion among College members about the best ways to develop the College grounds and encourage students to take a first hand interest in gardening (the College aims to make available an of the College grounds for student's gardening projects). The Club also promotes seminar and visits by experts in gardening and landscaping projects, an example of which has been a College lecture by Prof Francesco Sartori, the Director of the Botanical Garden of the University of Pavia and organises trips and visits of College students to a selection of beautiful Italian gardens open to the public.
