If you only have four rooms, then you just take 8 rounds to play instead of 4. If you have fewer than 16 students, then you just get a bye whenever you are supposed to play a student who does not exist. If you have a little more than 16 students, there isn't a particularly nice way to do it--you might just want to pair up some weaker students to form teams until you get down to 16.
