A quasi-experimental design was used in which college students resoonding to a survoy who reported extreme feelings of alienation were matched with respondents indicating high identification and compared with a control group by analysis of variance. Findings support the hypothesis of more available space in public, front, formal and informal areas for the identifted group and less in homes of the alIenated grouc. As expected, private and back areas were not significantly related to feelings of alienation or identification.
