The Chelsea Campus of Bunker Hill Community College is situated in the historic, former Post Office facility at 175 Hawthorne Street in Bellingham Square. Providing higher education and job training opportunities to residents of Chelsea, Revere, Everett, East Boston, Winthrop and other surrounding communities, the campus is actively involved in the community through partnerships with community based organizations, social service organizations, Chambers of Commerce, the City of Chelsea and the Chelsea Public Schools.
Several MBTA bus lines stop directly outside the front door of the campus, making it easily accessible by public transportation. The College also provides free shuttle service between the Charlestown and Chelsea campuses. Day students may park in metered spaces on streets adjacent to Bellingham Square. For directions and more detailed information about public transportation, visit the Chelsea Campus Directions page.
All allied health certificate programs, including medical assistant, patient care technician, central processing, surgical technology, and emergency medical technician (EMT) are based in Chelsea. In fall 2012, a new pharmacy technician certificate began, and planning is now underway for a new paramedic associate degree program. The Chelsea Campus offers laboratory science in biology, offering multiple sections of Human Biology and Anatomy & Physiology I and II. Chelsea also houses a full array of foundation and elective courses leading to college degrees and certificates. Chelsea is also home to the College’s Adult Basic Education (ABE) program which offers GED Spanish and Basic English for Speakers of Other Language (ESOL) classes.
