    Post in the basement

    How do I write the follwing sentence?

    Our computer lab is in the basement/Our computer lab is on the basement.

    I am confused here because we normaly say " He is on the first floor" or "He is in the basement".

    If you see the basement as being a room with a floor you can see why. We would say, for example, 'Bill is in room 12 on the first floor.'
