About The University of Chichester

The University of Chichester is based in West Sussex, England.

The university is comprised of two campuses; Bishop Otter campus based in the city of Chichester itself and Bognor Campus located in Bognor Regis.

The Bognor Campus is just five minutes from the sea and boasts stunning Georgian architecture including three grand mansion houses.

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.
