A male teacher lives in a school, due to domestic difficulties


Or some one lives in a shopping mall, or in a rental storage space. Or maybe he just sleeps in his place of work.

I know Codes judge a place as suitable for habitation.

In general, how is "habitation" decided?
On a time spent basis?
On where he usually sleeps?

Suitability for habitation depends on a few things.
-bathroom facilities
-cooking facilities
-sleeping areas

The code doesn't really say that you can't build a school and live in it.

Zoning laws in individual cities and counties is what will prohibit that. Setting up residence in a commercial building will usually violate zoning law.

Sounds good to me.
Codes are for public safety, sanitation is important for public safety, and people asleep are not watching for danger.
