Residence Halls and Student Belonging

where I feel like I can have my own space. "
Similarly, Erika submitted a photograph of
her bed area (Figure 2).
I feel most comfortable in my dorm room
because all of my stuff is here. I do not
have to worry about people walking by,
and I feel like I can sleep, do homework,
eat, and do other thing[s] that I need to do.

Erin's photograph provides a glimpse
into the private space she created (Figure 3).
She shared more about this space with the
following explanation:
. . . (excuse the mess) I feel most
comfortable in my dorm bedroom. I live
in the Harold Apartments [pseudonym],
so there are two bedrooms and a living
room area. I feel most comfortable in my
bedroom as it is a space for me to get work
done and relax, as well as get away from
any stresses/issues that may arise between
roommates as it's easy to close the door
and have my alone time.

Other students articulated how their
bedrooms were spaces in which they could
control who was around. As Molly stated,
" I feel most comfortable in my room. It is a
place where I know the majority of the time
will just be my roommates and I, I do not
feel like I have to be social and I can relax. "
Kelsey also shared, " I feel most comfortable
in the room which I share with my roommate. It is big enough that we have our own
space and do not invade each other's but we
are still able to have that company. "
