The Bartlett Architecture Society


The Bartlett School of Architecture Society (BSAS) is a student-led departmental society with the aim of raising student voices and driving cultural change. The society’s ambition is to connect the diverse expertise and experiences of the students, providing an opportunity to change the way in which we engage architectural education.

The BSAS invites everyone to get involved and work for change with students across the school, and welcomes new members.

A series of events have been planned for Welcome Week and the society invites all students to join in and take this opportunity to meet their fellow students both current and those new to The Bartlett.

To join the society purchase a standard membership on the BSAS Student Union Page

01 October | 10:00 | BSAS Hoodie Customisation

Come along to The Bartlett School of Architecture Society’s ‘Bartlett Hoodie’ event, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet with members of The Bartlett, staff and students alike and create you own customised Bartlett Hoodies! A mix of social event and workshop, the event aims to create a stronger and more inclusive community in The Bartlett, all while getting you an amazing piece of merch to wear with pride.

At the event, there will be tools for customisation of the hoodie, such as pre-made vinyl cut outs, embroidered patches, fabric markers and paint. Feel free to bring supplies and pre-planned designs. Each person will come leave with a hoodie, a certificate of ‘Bartlett Authentication’ for the hoodie, and hopefully new friends and a feeling of belonging in one of the world’s best architecture faculties!

Purchase your hoodie on The Bartlett School of Architecture Society’s page on the SU website for the low price of £20. This includes the hoodie itself and admission to the customisation event! 

The workshop will take place in the brand new student space located on the ground floor of 22 Gordon Street.
