Comprised of six residence halls and the Tercero Services Center and located on the southwest side of the central campus, the Tercero residence hall area is perhaps the most centrally located housing area on campus. Tercero is home to about 1200 students each academic year.
Tercero's buildings are arranged in three areas: Kearney and Laben Halls; Wall, Campbell and Potter Halls; and Leach Hall's 6 buildings. Well-designed grounds, featuring a lot of lawn, an assortment of trees and groundscape, and seating areas for students to hang out, surround the residence halls. Large lawns directly north of, and west of Leach Hall are perfect spots to throw around a ball or frisbie, or just lay in the sun.
The Tercero Dining Commons is located on the second floor of the Tercero Services Center, which is located directly northeast of Kearney Hall. Tercero DC is open to all residence hall students and is open during the same meal periods as Segundo DC and Cuarto DC. Tercero residents typically eat most of their meals at the Tercero DC due to its central location, though all residence hall students may eat in any of the three DCs for any meal.
Trudy's is Tercero Area's convenience store. Residents can purchase drinks, snacks and more at Trudy's throughout the day and evening, and relax on the outdoor patio.
Services in Tercero are provided in the Tercero Services Center. The Area Service Desk is located on the first floor of the center, directly across from the area mailboxes. The Computer Center and Academic Advising Center are both located next to the Area Service Desk. A games/recreation room, multiple lounges, and lots of study space are also available in the center.
