The quarter system dates back to the days when the ringing of the church bell was the general method of time keeping. When the bell rang on the hour, students had 15 minutes to get to the lecture.[1] Thus a lecture with a defined start time of 10:00 would start at 10:15. The opposite is also possible, thus a lecture with a start time of 10:00 can actually start at 9:45.

Academic quarter exists to a varying extent in many universities, especially where the campus is spread out over a larger area, necessitating the need for fifteen minutes for the students to walk from one building to another between classes.
