    I can't sleep. People like to come over to the area outside my building to make noise at night. Any suggestions on how to deal with it????

    Yeah I'm the same. I made a post about it and got absolutely slated for wanting to sleep at night. Apparently it's rude to want people to be quiet at night.

    I've got ear plugs and they help a lot.

    I buy mine from the travel section in Asda. They come in packs of 10 and they're orange, like mini traffic cones. They're foam so I twist it, put it in my ear then the foam expands and it cuts out a lot of the noise.

    There's always some people who drop out in the first few weeks, maybe see if there's another room opened up not in that area which you could swap into if it becomes a really big problem.

    Yeah it says only use them once, but I just give them a clean with a damp tissue and leave them to dry and I use them 3-4 times.

    Get some ear plugs. You can try calling security if the noise is really excessive and late - i.e. 1am + and shouting/screaming/music not normal talking
