Dormitory complexes are among the spaces that young and talented students can grow in, and therefore, it is of paramount importance to pay attention to the factors that improve the sense of self-belonging in the student and make them feel right at home. In this descriptive-analytic study, the information needed to achieve the research purpose were extracted from library archives and case studies, and 230 questionnaires were given to students in the field of arts, for which SPSS software was used to analyze the data. Cronbach's alpha coefficient was calculated to be 0.880 after adjustment, indicating the high reliability of the questionnaire. Moreover, Pearson, T-single, and Friedman tests were used to test the hypotheses. The results showed that from the students' viewpoint, the effect of physical factors on the design of the dormitory was pronounced higher than the average. Moreover, the effect of quality of life on the sense of belonging to the place was higher than the average and the factors of quality of life, cultural factors, physical factors, and health factors affecting the sense of belonging to the location of students were all pronounced higher than average.
