Mum doesn't realise how much work university is

I am living at home and my mum and her boyfriend constantly irritate me as they disrupt me from being work as they keep obsesssing over cleaning, they make noise (my desk is in the living room/kitchen as my bedroom is too small to fit a desk), they put on the tv and are generally disruptive.

I am losing my patience with them as I want to do well in my degree. Multiple times I have brought up how much work there is at university and how it's continuous especially since I am doing 2 languages. In normal times I would be at the library all day instead of putting up with things like that but it's not an option.

My energy levels are low and I am struggling with motivation so what ever energy I have or motivation isn't used for my studies but dealing with difficult people.

I have a similar situation so I wake up earlier than everyone else to get some quieter time? Not sure if that's an option for you but it helped me

Could you study in your bedroom without a desk? Or, like the person above has suggested, could you study early in the morning/late at night? Is moving back into uni accommodation an option?

You could lean on a thick book to write? Not idea but I have done that in desperate situations.
