and that's where you could find yourself if the landlord comes back to do any type of inspection or repair.
Good call kp, turning part of this room would probably make it out of code because there needs to be a inter connected, hard wired, battery back up, smoke detector in the new bedroom and an egress to the outside world with 5.7 sq. feet of clear opening.
In short, if the landlord insists on tearing this wall down because it turns the apartment into a 3 bedroom place, I don't think I would mess with him.
If you are in collage you should have learned to respect other peoples property by now!
