Is one dormitory one room or a building? I mean does the singular form of dormitory denote a block of rooms for students or a certain staff or just one room in the block? Thanks.

Interesting question. I think 'dormitory' is one room. If there are several of them making up one building you'd call it eg 'the dormitory building'. I could be wrong, but I've never heard the word used to describe the building itself as opposed to the room.
