Bartlett Hall is important in the history of the College as new-model housing for women. The term "cottage" indicates that it was remodeled after the newer housing at Smith College in Massachusetts, "homier" than earlier dorms. It has been used for other purposes over the years. Army trainees used it during World War I; and it was used for men's housing after World War II, as classroom and studio space for the Music Department, and today houses student and administration offices. In 1988, Bartlett Hall and Harwood Memorial Union were joined, creating more office space for student affairs.
Bartlett Hall has been remodeled several times, is in very good condition, and is handicapped accessible.
