San Sebastian College – Recoletos (SSC-R), commonly known by its nickname Bastê, is a Catholic institution of higher learning in the Philippines. The school is a part of the Augustinian Recollect schools in the Philippines, and is owned and operated by the Order of Augustinian Recollects.
SSC-R, situated in the heart of Manila, in R. Hidalgo Street, Quiapo, was named after Roman centurion turned martyr Saint Sebastian. The College had a relatively humble beginning. Its first functional lone building was an old convent: a two-storey Hispanic edifice made of stone and wood with capiz shell windows. The building served as classrooms of the first batch of 200 elementary and high school enrollees. SSC-R was then an exclusive school for boys.
SSC-R was established in March 1941 but was in hiatus from 1942 to 1945 during World War II. It formally reopened after the war in 1947. Sebastinian, Filipino: Sebastino, refers to alumni and current students, teaching and non-teaching personnel as well as administrators of San Sebastian College-Recoletos.
The College was granted Level 3 accreditation by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities or PAASCU in the Elementary department, High School Department and the College Department, including the Graduate Studies and College of Law.

It offers a four-year Juris Doctor course (J.D), a renamed version of its former Bachelor of Laws (Ll.B).
The Institute of Law is strongly supported by the Lex Cervus, a law fraternity founded in 1977 whose name means Law of the Stags. Its sister counterpart, Lex Agustiana Sororitas, is a law sorority founded in 1986.
