About Boston Architectural College

The Boston Architectural College (BAC) is an independent, professional college in Boston's Back Bay that provides an exceptional design education by combining academic learning with innovative experiential learning and by making its programs accessible to diverse communities. The College offers professional and accredited graduate and undergraduate degrees in architecture, interior architecture, landscape architecture, and design studies.

Campus information

The BAC is located in the heart of Boston's Back Bay, in close proximity to design firms, galleries, museums, cultural institutions and landmarks.  


Residence Hall Option

Some students are looking for a traditional college residential experience. This year, we are partnering with Pine Manor College (PMC) to make an ideal living situation for first-time undergraduates, international students, and others who seek an alternative to commuting long distances by car. Pine Manor College is in nearby Brookline, MA in Chestnut Hill, a quiet, safe, and elegant part of town.

The BAC is a 30-minute ride on the MBTA D green line train to the Hynes stop, right on our block. In addition, students may have cars on Pine Manor's campus. Each residence hall is shared with approximately 30 other students. Double and single rooms, both with shared bathrooms, are available. 
Accommodations are roomy enough for working on your assignments for design studios.

Meal Program

Included in the residence hall cost are meals at our Dining Hall. The Dining Hall, which is operated by ARAMARK, provides 14 meals per week, including brunch and dinner on weekends. These include hot and cold entrees and many cook-to-order options. Dining halls are shared with students from PMC students and other small local colleges.


Pine Manor's Campus Safety department works to protect students' welfare on campus. Three security officers, including a supervisor, are always on duty. In addition, Pine Manor College's front gate is manned 24 hours a day while at least one officer walks the campus.
