John Arundel (or Arundell; died 1477) was a medieval Bishop of Chichester.
A native of Cornwall, Arundel was a fellow of Exeter College, Oxford from 1421 to 1430, and served as university proctor in 1426. He was domestic chaplain and confessor to King Henry VI, who exerted influence on his behalf to gain him preferment in the Church, though without conspicuous success. He became precentor of Hereford in 1432, and archdeacon of Richmond in 1457, and also held prebends from Wells, Lincoln, Lichfield, Hereford, York and St Paul's; but the king failed in his attempts to have Arundel named Bishop of Durham.
