    I haven't experienced living with a racist flatmate but if I did, I'd probably try to distance myself with that said person. If that person is insulting you with racial remarks, the best plan of action would be to move out.

    The other person has to behave in a considerate way to fellow flat mates

    Just ignore him. If its uni property then id think you could make a complaint somewhere and get him sanctioned//evicted. You could always tru and seek a change of accommmodation, but then it would come out anyway.

    You are trapped because you wont complain. Go and see one of the advisers in the students union.

    Ask to move rooms and tell them not to ask for the room change charge, otherwise you'll take them to court for putting you with a racist.

    When you say racist, do you mean actually racist or things you disagree with?
