Definition:
Collective living quarters include structurally separate and independent places of abode intended for habitation by large groups of individuals or several households and occupied at the time of the census [or survey]. Such quarters usually have certain common facilities, such as cooking and toilet installations, baths, lounge rooms or dormitories, which are shared by the occupants.

Collective living quarters may be further classified into hotels, rooming houses and other lodging houses, institutions and camps.
