RIBA South / South East

RIBA South/South East covers Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Oxfordshire, Kent, Guernsey, Surrey and East and West Sussex

The regional office works on behalf of 5,000 chartered architects across the south east of England, promoting the benefits of RIBA Chartered Membership and Chartered Practice accreditation.

We deliver a range of events for Continuing Professional Development across the south east. We are responsible for administering the RIBA Awards in our region, particularly the RIBA South/South East Regional Awards.

We also provide the student mentoring scheme to six schools of architecture across the region and support ten active RIBA branches as well as meetups for women in architecture and for small practices. We are a source of information and signposting about RIBA in the South East of England for both members and the general public.

RIBA South / South East branches

Our ten branches are our lifeblood. They are a valuable way for members to network locally; and they make sure that the regional office fully represents the interests of the region’s members. Their activities include informal meetups, local building tours, awards and prizes for students at local schools of architecture, and community involvement activities run by architects.
