Well if the other rooms in the apartment are grounded yours most likely is too and you just made an error in first thinking otherwise. You could buy a cheap outlet tester to be sure though if the surge protector is not malfunctioning you are likely indeed grounded.

Re-read the post a sec...We have an outlet tester. That's how I learned initially that my room was not grounded. And when I plugged in the surge protector, I could have sworn the "grounded" light was not on. Now it is. And the tester plugged into the surge protector says it's grounded. Hence my extreme confusion. I guess I'll check the outlet direct again when I go home.

Thanks for all your help in this thread, Bluff.

My last thought on this is if you can turn off the breaker so you don't have to work hot (or use a rubber handled screwdriver in your right hand [if you get shocked it goes down side of body that doesn't have your heart]), and check out the outlet itself to see if the ground wire is loose and the terminal screw needs tightened.
