Rouhollah Baha'addini Ardekani, Farshad Helmi
Pages: 69-80


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.
