In the standard that I lived in last year, given the furniture they included and the fact that it took up all the wall space, I think a futon would have used way too much of the remaining space in the room. If I remember correctly, the room was about 240 sq. ft., and it was roughly square shaped. However, one entire wall was taken up by the front door and the closet doors, so it could not be blocked. Another wall was used up completely by built-in shelves, the bathroom door, and my dresser. The third wall was just wide enough for my bed, nightstand, and desk. The fourth wall had a table and a chair and not much room for anything else.
You can definitely fit some of the furniture in the closet (maybe even the dresser, but I cannot vouch for that), but the room will probably be uncomfortably tight. Have you posted the (approximate) dimensions of the futon?
Yeah, I mean, no doubt in my mind that a futon will fit in your room. It may be laughably cramped though.
Oh, blargh. Guess it better be left at home then. Too bad, would be much more useful than a breakfast table. It's the length of a normal three-seat couch (er, sorry that's not terribly specific, but basically: it's big), so I'm guessing it won't fit.
Thanks (as always) for the advice, everyone!
