Hartman & Schirmer Row Houses

Built in 2010, Hartman House and Schirmer House line Second Street across from the entrance to the college.  The design adds a New England charm to the area and the two-building, six-unit buildings house 24-27 upperclassmen.  Each three-story Row House provides private bedrooms for 4 to 5 students on the first and third floors, with the center floor the common living area and kitchen.
