McCarthy is part of a three building complex which is referred to as the Southwest Quad. It shares a first floor with Kennedy and Reynolds Halls. The Southwest Quad also encompasses Leo O'Donovan Dining Hall, Wolfington Hall Jesuit Residence, a multi-level underground garage, and Hoya Snaxa - a student run convenience store. Every floor has a full kitchen inside of a large community room where many residents gather to share meals, catch their favorite TV show, or study as a group. McCarthy is home to the Transfer Living Learning Community and the Justice & Diversity in Action Living Learning Community.
