Our Location

The University of Chichester is a welcoming University in West Sussex nestled between the South Downs National Park and the English Channel.  We are based over two beautiful campuses in Chichester and Bognor Regis. Our Bishop Otter Campus in Chichester is set in stunning surroundings with plenty of relaxing green space and a combination of attractive, historic buildings and excellent modern facilities. Situated just five minutes from the sea, our Bognor Regis Campus boasts fantastic teaching facilities and a mixture of beautiful Georgian architecture alongside our £35million Tech Park. The Cathedral City of Chichester, described by the Sunday Times as one of the best places to live in the UK in 2020, is renowned for its world class Festival Theatre and Pallant House Gallery, as well as its charming Georgian centre contained within Roman city walls. The historic resort of Bognor Regis draws visitors for its endless sunshine and unspoilt beaches. The local district provides a wealth of cultural and sporting opportunities from celebrated events such as the Festival of Speed and the Revival meeting hosted by the Goodwood Estate, to sailing on the creeks of Chichester harbour, or cycling in our glorious National park. Our unique location on the south coast of England provides excellent road and rail links to Brighton, Portsmouth and London.

Both of our campuses are easily accessible by foot, bus, train and car. If you prefer to drive, staff can purchase parking permits or we offer a car sharing scheme. For keen cyclists, we have 190 covered cycle spaces on Bishop Otter campus and 90 covered cycle spaces at Bognor Regis campus, both of which are secure and free. Bognor Regis and Chichester train stations are an approximate 20 minute walk from their respective campus. For more detailed information about commuting, please see our How to Find Us page.
