Lock the door. Call the campus police.
Get into a fetal position and hold on to my butt.

In all seriousness, I would probably walk out of my room, assess the situation and if I feel I am in danger, walk back into my room and sit in front of the door so it can't be opened. I don't have any weapons in my bedroom, but I also don't have anything in my living room I would lament losing (it's all my housemates entertainment system in the living room, lol). If they tried to get into my room, well, as I said, I don't have any weapons, but I have some valuables (heirlooms that my bitch ex didn't manage to acquire) that I would be willing to risk life and limb to protect. If, in this unlikely event, they decide they want what is in my room, then I will destroy them by taking a fist full of coins and shoving them in socks. Hey, maybe I do have weapons in my room! I'd do all this because it is very unlikely they have guns.
There was a time when I was armed to the teeth, illegally, in my own home. The threat of home invasion by armed assailants was a reality, the need to defend myself and my home a necessity. ****, I had hi-tech fucking surveillance around the house, cameras, motion sensors, etc as well as two American Staffies, baseball bats, tasers, a shotgun and a sawn off .22. It was a terrible and often terrifying way to live.
But now, being a law abiding citizen, one that does not associate or invite nefarious types into my home, let alone do business or live with them, I don't have the fear that my house will be raided by people with tasers, baseball bats and guns. Reading my American friends on here talk about grabbing their shotgun, .357, etc at the sound of their house being broken into makes me realise the massive differences in our two societies.
Even as law abiding citizens, you seem to have an escalated fear of severe violence occurring in your own domecile. That's weird to me. Over here home invasions are either stand over drug types that you don't hear about, or some young ***** punks rushing a senior citizens house in the hope of gaining a couple hundred bucks of jewellery, or some sick **** rushing those same houses for some sick sexual perversion. If my law abiding house got home invaded, it is likely they got their info wrong and thought it was going to be an easy raid. If they wanted into my room, it would be the most difficult raid of their lives.
Oh yes, I'd call the cops now as well.GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

Probably become concerned because I live in a ranch house.

My plan involves a samurai sword, and immediately shutting off the circuit breaker to all lights and electricity in my house.
Cause, you see, I know the layout of my home and furniture extremely well, as I have navigated it's obstacles drunkenly many times in complete darkness to give my dogs water after a long night of partying.
So that's it. I flip the lights off, and take them out one by one. It's a pretty ninjitsu-ish, destined-to-fail plan, but I'm going for it."This is why we are here. Because the Martial Arts for too long have been cloaked in an unnecessary level of secrecy bordering on mysticism, and its in these shadows that the cockroaches love to hide. -Phrost"
