Courts is a co-ed building for upper-class and first-year students. Suites are gender specific. Each suite consists of two double bedrooms connected to individual study rooms, adjoined by a central bathroom. The closets, enclosed in the wall, are without doors; consequently many students choose to bring a four-foot tension rod to hang a curtain. All rooms are carpeted and windows are furnished with blinds.

Suite-style bathrooms open off each study room and have tile floors, two basins with lighted mirrors, a shower, and toilet.

Courts contains a central courtyard green with trees and bushes, connecting walkways, and patio furniture.
