The campus is set in beautiful surroundings, with plenty of green space to relax in and the desirable combination of attractive, historic buildings and excellent, modern facilities.
The campus was founded by William Otter, Bishop of Chichester, in 1839 and the original parts of the University still retain a strong sense of history.
In August 2004 saw the grand opening of our brand new, purpose-built and impressive Students’ Union building Zeebar. This new provision has vastly improved the facilities and services available to our students.
On campus we have a large refectory (a buzzing meeting point at meal times), a smaller café for students and staff called Holts.
Learning Resources Centre (LRC)

Equipped with two floors of library resources, one for silent study and one for quiet group study, ample places to plug in your laptop, access to 135 open access workstations (Mac and PC), and a specialist media centre, the LRC is well-equipped to meet your independent learning needs. In Summer 2012, a major refurbishment of the building was completed to further enhance resources and introduce a café, complete with ample social study areas.This award-winning, modern facility has an extensive and regularly refreshed library, complete with a large range of books, papers and journals. The Otter Gallery is also located within the LRC and runs public art exhibitions throughout the year.
