Cary Quadrangle

Cary Quadrangle is one of the largest all-male residence halls in the country and one of the first buildings built for student housing at Purdue! Comprised of five buildings and most recently renovated in 2006 to update Cary Quad to 21st century student needs. Cary Quad contains approximately 1,183 beds with a variety of room types (scroll down for photos and more information).

Living at Cary Quad

Rooms in Cary Quad include singles, doubles, triples and suite-style rooms. Each floor has a lounge for academic work or watching television, with larger lounges on the basement floor of each building. There is also an academic support center within the complex, where you can grab a buddy and study for that big exam coming up or host a work session for a group project.

Location, Location, Location!

If you’re a sports fan or just full of Boilermaker pride, you’ll love how close Cary Quad is to Ross-Ade Stadium and Mackey Arena. Imagine cracking your window on a crisp fall day and hearing the roar of the crowd from a football game or fans spilling out of Mackey Arena or Holloway gymnasium singing the Purdue fight song after a big win! Cary Quad is also just a few steps away from the Memorial Mall. Plus, you can enjoy a variety of food choices in close proximity including Ford Dining Court and the Cary Knight Spot Grill. 

Take a moment and look at what Cary Quad has to offer. Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions – we are here to help you be the best student that you can be!

"I think that Cary has one of the best communities out of [sic] campus, and it's proximity to the academic campus and dining is one of the best."
