This article attempts to reinvigorate discussion around the residence–homelessness relationship by problematizing the binaries in present understandings and poses a different method of theorizing the interplay between the two ideas. Drawing on interviews with girls accessing homelessness services within the North of England, dialogue interweaves girls’s meanings of residence and homelessness with the Freudian notion of the ‘unheimlich’.
