Leisure and Social Programme

Leisure and Social Programme

Chichester College offers a weekly enrichment activities for international students, alongside the college-wide sport, leisure, social and cultural activities.

We actively encourage all students to get involved in the enrichment activities to meet new people, experience new places and create memories whilst they are here.

Sports Activities

There are many sports activities in the afternoons and evenings at the College such as football, basketball, netball, rugby, tennis, hockey, and rock climbing. The tennis and basketball courts can be used during the week and out of College hours for a small fee. Find out more about the Sports Centre.

College Fitness Gym

All students are able to join and enjoy the College’s fitness gym. Students will receive a full induction to all the equipment and facilities available. Find out more about the Fitness Gym.

Trips and Excursions

There are trips throughout the year including Go-Karting, Thorpe Park, Paintballing and Ice Skating. Local trips also take place at weekends to places such as Brighton, Oxford and Bath. Note: we need the parental permission forms completed before students can participate in these trips.

Social and Cultural Activities

We host a regular Tea & Chat culture session for all international students every Tuesday afternoon. We also organise social parties from time to time to celebrate seasonal cultural events.

Student Union (ChiSU)

“ChiSU” is the name of the Chichester College student union. All students automatically become a member of TOTUM, formally known as NUS, when they join the College. Students can claim discounts at many shops and restaurants with their TOTUM cards. The Student Union is a vibrant environment and is open to all students. The union buildings feature student only zones, perfect for chilling out with friends or a game of pool. Find out more about the ChiSU.
