Systematic Literature Review Effect of Dormitory Design on Occupant Behavior

Dormitories are one of the important facilities in educational institutions that help carry out educational activities themselves. However, socialization activities in the dormitory often cause conflicts and disputes between residents due to cultural differences, the habits of each individual who lives in one room so that it influences the behavior of everyone who lives there. In addition, the design aspects of the dormitory are also important to study regarding the success factors of the design so that it can provide comfort for residents. This research will look at the extent to which research related to dormitory buildings influences the behavior of its residents and will map out the factors that determine the success of the hostel design. The research used the systematic literature review method by searching journals from the last 15 years using the PoP application, then reviewed with the keywords dormitory, design, and behavior and using the Scopus indexer. So that the results of the study show that the design aspects of the dormitory play an important role in the comfort and behavior aspects of the occupants. The social needs of the hostel are needed to create a design that can encourage positive interactions and provide a good community life within the hostel. The research results can be used as a reference for future dormitory designs.
