What is a good workout routine to gain muscle mass without any free weights?

This is my situation: I live in a dorm, and due to various reasons(price, overcrowding) I am unable to go to a gym. I am also without dumbbells for the time being. I have a very fast metabolism, and am mainly interested in gaining muscle mass. Is this possible with push-ups, sit-ups, and other simple exercises that do not utilize free weights, and if so, what would be a good routine?

Thanks in advance for all responses.

    Running is best for your situation. I would follow it with push ups, dips, chin ups (if possible) and crunches. I would also increase my protein intake and eat less carbs. Don’t eliminate them, but limit them.

    You have no room for free weights?

    Use a SPORT CHORD.
    Simply tether the tie of the chord inside a door-hinge and exercise to your heart’s delight!

    The negative-resistance will help you better tone your muscles than free weights.
