It would have been okay if it was like a Friday or Saturday night thing but it's happening almost every ****ing midnight. I have barely gotten any sleep over the last three days. It's annoying af especially when you have got lectures at 9:00 am the very next day. I just wanna sleep peacefully, Is this really too much to ask??? Need advice on how to deal with this situation without spending money on noise cancelling headphones. Thanks.

Like cooking isn't loud?
Can't you wear earplugs or sleep through it? Are you sleeping in the kitchen or something?

Get up at 5 am and make a hell of a lot of noise while making your breakfast.

How many in flat and how many of them cook at this hour?
Have you had a word with them?
You could run it past hall management or if theres a uni rep then past them.
You have to be careful before full confrontation.
Keep a diary of incidents as evidence.

It might quieten down.
If its the norm then I think its unreasonable especially if its waking you.

They dont just cook. They talk while cooking. It's like a social gathering. And by 'talk' I mean yell.
They also have this girl in the group who has the most ****ing annoying high-pitched shrieking cackle you will ever hear ngl. They also lock each other in the kitchen sometimes as a joke and the person locked inside screams and keeps knocking.
And no I can't sleep through it, otherwise I wouldn't have made this thread.

I am kinda considering vacuuming my room and the corridor at 4:30 am in the morning but then again I don't wanna disturb other quiet flatmates who aren't involved in this hooliganism.

I would have a small talk to your flatmates first - they may be unaware that they are making too much noise or that you need to sleep for early lectures. I would also advise getting a good pair of earplugs to block out most of the noise. I wouldn't immediately report them - see if you can resolve the situation between yourselves.

Speak to them about it then.
If you're in halls speak to someone there.
It's not fair on you ( I assumed it was one flatmate cooking and you were being a bit overdramatic but makes more sense that its a group of them)

Thanks for the reply. I think there are like eight people in total on my floor and at least four of them cook at midnight. I havent exactly seen them cooking, I have just heard voices.
I haven't talked to them about this because I am scared. They are all way older than me and I am not ready to have a fight with them.
I think I will email my hall warden but I dont really think they're gonna do anything about it.
I am keeping a mental note of the date and time every time it happens. Fingers crossed, I am hoping this all stops soon. I don't want to fail my exams.

Mental note is no good it need to be a contemporaneous diary. You can use earplugs it might quieten down or just return the favour.

Okay, I am gonna keep a diary starting from today. I have tried normal earplugs but they don't seem to work. My room is right next to the kitchen and the walls are not sound proof at all.

Do you speak to your flatmates at all, or is there a flatmate you feel more comfortable talking with? You don't need to be confrontational or shout at them, just a small word with them.
