Prior to the delivery of a Habitation Module to the Space Station scheduled for 2002, there will be a period of approximately four years during which crews will have no private facilities for sleeping or off-duty activities. This lack of personal accommodation can be remedied by providing temporary or transitional private crew quarters as an interim measure until a permanent solution is available. The paper presents an overview of four possible approaches to the provision of these, discussing their characteristics and comparing their advantages or disadvantages.
