Three residence halls and the Cuarto Dining Commons make up the Cuarto Area, which is arranged about Oxford Circle. Located one block northwest of the Segundo Area and the northwest corner of campus, Cuarto is home to approximately 1,000 students. All three Cuarto residence halls are designed around private outdoor courtyards, two of which feature swimming pools. Cuarto is the only residence hall area with swimming pools, although the pools are available for use to all residence hall community members.
All of Cuarto's rooms are organized into suites, with two- to four bedrooms arranged about a central, shared living room and bathroom.
The Cuarto Dining Commons is located in between Emerson Hall and Webster Hall, on the east side of Oxford Circle. Cuarto DC is open to all residence hall students and is open during the same meal periods as Segundo DC and Tercero DC. Cuarto residents typically eat breakfast and dinner at the Cuarto DC; some residents also eat lunch at Cuarto DC while others eat at the Segundo DC or Tercero DC, or another campus dining location, based upon where their classes are at midday.
Next door to the Cuarto DC is Crossroads, the Cuarto Area's convenience store. Residents can purchase drinks, snacks and more at Crossroads throughout the day and evening.
Cuarto offers the following services: an Area Service Desk, Academic Advising, Peer Advising, and a computer center. Each of these services are located on the first floor of Thoreau Hall with the exception of the Computer Center, which is on the first floor of Emerson Hall and is accessed from the west interior courtyard of the building ("grass side").
