In the design of the student housing, it is assumed that there will be multiple tenants with seperate computers.

In a 'standard' LAN, you assign a seperate address to each PC.
The logistics, and equipment to support multiple PCs using a single LAN connection are much more involved than what is dealt with on a home network with a small hub or switch.
