Background and History

The University of Chichester dates back to 1839, after William Otter, who became Bishop of Chichester in 1836, took an earnest interest in the promotion of education. After his death, a training college was set up on what is now the Bishop Otter College campus. In 1873, the College became a training college for women, as a result of a campaign led by Louisa Hubbard to encourage the acceptance of women as teachers. Male students were not introduced until 1957. The Bognor Campus was opened as an emergency teacher training institute immediately after the Second World War in 1946.
