My basic comment is there's a huge difference between "a very tiny window which provides very little natural light" which one might find in a less than ideal basement apartment and "absolutely no windows whatsoever."

Many students will happily sacrifice a lot of personal space for privacy, and the US norm of "shared dorm rooms" is actually quite weird, but having absolutely no external signal for the time of day is a recipe for fucked up sleep patterns and depression.
