The Anti-Quad (/æntɑɪ-kwɑd/) also known as "Best Quad" and "North Side", is one of the three portal groups within Brown College consisting of the portals Peters, Rogers, Holmes, Tucker. These portals are usually a prime location for upperclassmen residents to live because they are slightly secluded, but are still very close to the main lounge, Tucker Lounge. It is called the Anti-Quad because it was originally supposed to have five portals and create a space surrounded by buildings like the Quad. However, the fifth portal known as Engels was never built, creating a triangle of grass next to Newcomb Dining Hall that is never used for recreation. Some notable residents of anti-quad include Ricky (Fred) Short
