I didn't even want to fall asleep in the same room as him.

it seems that "as" can be replaced with "with".

so, Does it mean "with"? But I found nothing about the "with" meaning in "as" of dictionaries

or, it is a conjunction meaning in the same way?

but I can't make sure if a conjunction can link a word

by the way, the source is here

    The same as is a set phrase in English. It can also be used with a word in between - Your sweater is the same colour as mine. He is in the same situation as she is. Feb 20 at 9:43

    There's something a bit weird / tautologous about I live in the same house with him. It makes me want to ask Same as what? Feb 20 at 12:10
  • With in your example is no different to "I didn't even want to fall asleep with him." It doesn't mean "as", it means something like "in close proximity to".

it is separated by "room" though, It is a variant of a set phrase in English for "The same as".

There are many examples.

Your sweater is the same colour as mine.

Linda isn't the same height as Jenny.

In my opinion, "as him" after "the same" is the comparative adverb in the sentence.
