Learn more about starting your own OBR chapter

The Oxford and Cambridge chapters serve their respective universities, which were the first campuses to begin OBR chapters. The London chapter serves all universities within the London area, including Imperial College London, University College London, and the campuses of the University of London. OBR is rapidly expanding to new locations, and we were excited to welcome OBR-San Diego & OBR-Manchester in 2012. 2013 saw OBR’s first expansion into Asia with the opening of OBR-Singapore, and consolidation in the west coast of the USA with new chapters in Los Angeles and the San Francisco/Bay area. We are continuing our expansion in 2014, so if there is no OBR chapter currently serving your area, find out how to start your own here.
