    What recourse do you have if you have roommates who stay up all night partying and listening to loud music until 4-5 a.m. most nights!
    Whereas I thought this would be a good match of friends it has turned out to be terrible. We live in private housing so I am wondering if I am stuck with the lease through the summer. Okay, I think I really know the answer but am hoping someone might have additional insight.
    My roommates (3 people) party most night and smoke marijuana and I'm not sure what else drug-wise because I just basically stay in my room.
    I don't want to turn them into the landlord because for the most part we basically get along I just keep my distance from them and I don't want things to become contentious but I can not longer handle the partying every single night. I can't function well the next day, I wake up in a pissy mood and they just basically sleep most of the day. I have no idea if they attend class or not. I know this is normal for a lot of students but it just isn't my life-style and it's not working for me.
    So, given the situation and the feeling that this is not going to change can I get out of my lease or am I going to have to pay for two flats simultaneously?

    I would speak to someone at Uni about this

    Have you spoken to your actual flatmates? Perhaps they wouldn't mind going out. Or perhaps they have a friend whose house is too quiet who would swap rooms with you?
