    So I am currently a second year university student, living with my parents, but my parents right now are on holiday and so I am alone in the house.

    Yesterday my older brother came over with his whole family (3 kids, all under 7 years) and decided to sleep over. I have lots of studying to do in the upcoming days and really don't want company, especially crazy loud kids playing around.

    I can't just tell my brother straight you can't sleepover here, its disrespectful, how can I make them go to their home??

    This is so weird, can't believe I am posting it here lol, but I am interested to see what anyone comes up with.

    Just explain you are in the middle of your exams if they make a lot of noise. Dont interact and stay in your room and if they are noisy, then make a point of it.

    Explain to your brother you need a quiet house to focus on your studies.

    Ask your brother politely if he doesn't mind staying at his own house considering you need a quiet environment to work in. If possible you could contact your parents to explain your situation - it is their house, after all.
