The Nishinomiya Uegahara Campus is located about halfway between Kobe and Osaka in the city of Nishinomiya. In 1929, Kwansei Gakuin moved to this campus, which is designed in a "Spanish mission style" by William Merrell Vories (1880-1964). Mr. Vories, who was a missionary, architect, educator, and entrepreneur born in the United States, worked mainly in the Kansai area in Japan. All of the campus buildings are designed to have cream-colored walls and red roofs. The Clock Tower stands at the center of one's view when entering through the main gate, and the landscaping helps to contribute to the reputation of the campus as one of the most beautiful in Japan.

The Chapel was constructed in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of Kwansei Gakuin.
