How do I keep warm this winter in an unheated apartment?

This winter I'll be living in Connecticut in an unheated house. My room is about 15 x 10 feet with a drafty window and a sky light; the apartment is large (2 floors, 2 bathrooms, four large bedrooms, a dining room, a very large family room & very large kitchen, and I share it with 3 other people. The building is pretty old and not particularly well-insulated; the decision not to have heating this winter is because evidently they paid a mint in central heating last winter just to keep the house in the 50s.
I've purchased a fancy-looking space heater
and I have a good down comforter and wool blanket. I'm fine with dressing warmly. What else should I be doing to keep not only my room but the apartment, bathroom, etc. livable?
