Crooks lives in a room connected to the stables, and yes, he is isolated from everyone else. This location for his room was well thought out. As a black man, he wasn't welcome in the bunkhouse, at meals, or even card games. This was a direct result of the racism and segregation in play at the time the novel was written.
