Can I play loud music in student accommodation?Watch

And btw , if they make a complaint about you, you could loose your accommodation - think about it.
I’m in student t accommodation at uni of Exeter and have 4 other people in my flat. We get along great and go out every night, but one point of contention developing is my music/loudness.
Whenever the person in the room next to me has messaged asking me to turn my music down, I’ve been completely fine with that as those times have been at night etc and I understand that. But it’s becoming more of an issue.
Today I was listening to music at 6:45PM and he messaged telling me to turn it down. This Annoyed me because 1) I was listening to chill music (Lucy Dacus) so it was hardly disturbing and 2) it’s the evening I should be able to play music. It wasn’t even on full volume it was 7 on my echo! And the other day he asked me to turn my music off at 3pm on a Saturday.
It’s starting to piss me off because I don’t mind being accommodating but at the same time I pay for this room I should be able to listen to music at an acceptable time in the evening.
Am I just being a d!ck about this or am I right to be annoyed? I’m not sure what other peoples experiences are like in halls.
I presume that where you live now let’s you do what you like without complaint ?
Welcome to the Adult World - it involves responsibility and consideration of others.
It means not being self-centred and realising that the world doesn’t revolve around you .
It means thinking of others who may need quiet to study as they are there to get somewhere in life and take their study seriously!
In short - NOOOOOOO ! Get headphones!
My flatmate neighbour in halls last year only played Elvis. Every. Single. Day. I got sick of it and it did my head in.
I now dislike
