In five-dimensional Euclidean geometry, the quarter 5-cubic honeycomb is a uniform space-filling tessellation (or honeycomb). It has half the vertices of the 5-demicubic honeycomb, and a quarter of the vertices of a 5-cube honeycomb.[1] Its facets are 5-demicubes and runcinated 5-demicubes.

This honeycomb is one of 20 uniform honeycombs constructed by the   Coxeter group, all but 3 repeated in other families by extended symmetry, seen in the graph symmetry of rings in the Coxeter–Dynkin diagrams. The 20 permutations are listed with its highest extended symmetry relation:
