I tune my board in my dorm man. Well, I actually live in a small suite dorm, so I do it in our small living room, but its still a dorm. You could defiantly do it in your room. Just get to boxes of equal height (I use two coolers) and take some trash bags and cut them open and lay them on the floor under the coolers. just lay your board on the coolers or whatever you are using and you should be good to go.
