College News and Departmenal Notes: Teachers College Purchases New Residence Hall for Students
by Departmental notes - 1919
Teachers College requires that all women students under twenty-four years of age who are not living at home shall live in Whittier Hall or obtain permission of the Social Director for living elsewhere. In recent years the number of these younger students attending the School of Practical Arts of Teachers College has so increased that no room remains in Whittier Hall for the more mature students. At the same time, the number of older students has also increased, and during the past four years apartment and room rentals in the neighborhood of the College have been substantially raised. Because of these facts, the Trustees of the College have recently purchased "The Bancroft," a handsome, eight-story, fire-proof apartment house at 509-515 West I2ist Street, opposite the College buildings, especially for the accommodation of the more mature students of both the School of Education and the School of Practical Arts. The College takes possession of "The Bancroft" on September 1, 1919, so that it will be available for the use of students for the Winter Session.
