The new dormitory on Bow street will be one of the finest and best equipped at Harvard. Work was begun on it about the first of last July and it will be completed probably by the middle of next June. The building alone cost $160,000 and is planned with all possible conveniences. There are fifty suites ranging in prices from single rooms at $200 to double rooms at $700. In each room there will be telephones connecting with the janitor's room, and besides the exercise and reading rooms on the ground floor there is to be a breakfast room open only to those rooming in the building.
The main entrance will be on Bow street, but there will be passages from Linden and Plympton streets opening into the court, from which there are five staircases. The agent has already received applications for all the single rooms and about half of the double rooms.
