SRO?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_room_occupancy

From wiki:

Single room occupancy (more commonly abbreviated to SRO) is a form of housing that is typically aimed at residents with low or minimal incomes who rent small, furnished single rooms with a bed, chair, and sometimes a small desk.[1] SRO units are rented out as permanent residence and/or primary residence [2] to individuals, within a multi-tenant building where tenants share a kitchen, toilets or bathrooms. SRO units range from 80[3] to 140 square feet.[1] In the 2010s, some SRO units may have a small refrigerator, microwave and sink.[1]

SROs are a form of affordable housing, in some cases for formerly or otherwise homeless individuals.[4] SRO units are the least expensive form of non-subsidized rental housing, with median rents even in New York City ranging from $450 to $705 per month.[5] The term is primarily used in Canada and US. Since the 1970s and 1980s, there has been an increasing displacement of SRO units aimed at low-income earners due to gentrification, with SRO facilities being sold and turned into condominiums.[6] Between 1955 and 2013, almost one million SRO units were eliminated in the US due to regulation, conversion or demolition.[7]
