Hi! I'm going to be moving into halls quite soon - I stayed at the same accommodation last year and will have the same room. I have had a few problems with the 'air' in my room.
First, my room is right by the main entrance - even though there is a sign that says do not smoke by these windows, many people do it anyway and I have repeatedly had to tell people to smoke elsewhere as it was stinking my room up.
Secondly, the window doesn't open far at all. It is held by a chain and there is only enough space to stick my hand out so the air from outside doesn't have much of a chance to get inside even when the window is open. Although my room is on the ground floor, there are also bars that are covering my window.
Thirdly, I noticed some mold growing on the bathroom ceiling - I told management and all they did was paint over it. I said that I don't think that the extraction fan is working as when I have a shower (en-suite bathroom), the whole room steams up (there is no window in the bathroom).
My room is quite dark as well because the window is double glazed with blinds inside of them - so it limits light getting inside.
Do you think it sounds like I need a dehumidifier? Or should I ask them to make some changes to the window?
Bad lighting, mold and bad air in student room - how can I improve the air? Watch

why did you move back to the same room if it has all these problems? they're not going to change your window and while a dehumidifier might help with the damp it won't solve the rest of the issues
