About American Baptist College

American Baptist College is a private historically black college where, since 1924, students have received a world class Christian education and preparation for leadership, ministry and social justice. ABC offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs at its Nashville, Tennessee campus and globally on-line.

Campus information

American Baptist College campus sits on a 53-acre boundary of gently sloping land that looks down on a bend of the Cumberland River in Nashville, Tennessee. It is physically located on the west side of Baptist World Center Drive and off of Interstate 65’s Trinity Lane Exit. Along with recreation, shopping and entertainment, students have access to numerous leadership opportunities for growth and development in the capital city.

Located in Nashville, Tennessee, United States.


ABC has physically and organizationally restructured our Campus Housing components. This included the restructuring of campus policies and procedures beginning with processes for applying for campus housing through procedures for preregistering for housing. This will avoid students arriving and expecting housing without having registered officially with the Business Office.

Our efforts have created a new campus-housing environment. It is where students can expect a clean, safe and respectful community that allows them to reach their full potential.


ABC housing options fit your style. Find lifelong friends in our comfortable and healthy living spaces.

Our staff guides you in developing high standards of conduct, scholarship, and social skills, as well as the capacity to live harmoniously with others.

All meal funds will be included in the student’s balance for the semester.
