    That's ridiculous. Surely they'd expect there to be noise in halls?! Uni's a time to party and get away from people like your parents who grumble about what time you come home and how much noise you make. Buy them some ear plugs and tell them to go to hell!
    They might have work to do. I would be very angry indeed if my sleep was disturbed by others being inconsiderate. It has not happened to me, however.

    That's equally ridiculous. Not everyone has the luxury of minimum contact hours and being able to come in at 3am every night. When I went clubbing and lived in halls (coming in after 1am), I'd make sure to make minimal noise and realised that not everyone wanted to be woken up by me coming back drunk.

    There's nothing wrong with clubbing / having fun in halls but when I got woken up for two hours at 2am before an exam it was taking the piss.

    My friend's hall (in bristol) disciplines people if they make noise after 1am. 8 people got kicked out last year.

    sounds fair. 1am is a workable time for all concerned.

    thanks for that Mum, seriously people have to expect it when they live in Halls, there are other places to live if you dont want the noise, they are clearly making complaints for the sake of it, pathetic....

    grassing is the lowest of the low, everyone knows that, nobody likes a Grass

    the complaints are pathetic and would surely be better sorted by them just speaking to me instead of grassing at every opportunity

    I think that they are justified in complaning. I have 9am lectures Mon-Fri, so have to get up at about 0730. Having finished work at midnight, to be woken up in the early hours would lead to serious complaints from me at any rate.

    the night before an exam you should've been munching coffee beans and frantically reading your textbooks - embrace the student way of life

    why should anyone have to consider not living with the vast majority of freshers because they don't want to be woken up all the time gone 1am? I lived in halls for a year and there would've been major arguments if people came back from the clubs at put music on etc.

    Had a very good time last night, went out in Nottingham and got back kind of pished at about 3am, went to another flat where my friends where, played a bit of pro evo and had a bit more to drink. so as you can imagine now I have a bit of a hangover.

    This is the earliest i've woken up without having a lecture since i've been at uni, had the residency manager at my door at 9am saying i had to go to her office immediatley. It turns out that yet again the flat downstairs have complained about us making noise. They complained in freshers week that we shut cupboard doors too loudly and scrape chairs delibaratley :rolleyes: They seem to make a habit of complaining so previously a lot of the time when we all come back drunk we've knocked on their door for revenge. Apparently they complained again last night and i'm now on my final warning about living in these Halls.

    so im really not happy about the threat of being kicked out because of some arsey boring ***** downstairs, got into a sort of mini fight with one of the people down there the other day and naturally made it clear to the residency manager that she is a complete ****** for just believing all of their complaints.

    But seriously what do people expect living at Halls in Uni? anyone else have arsey ***** in their flat?
    Maybe not the noise (the only problems I have with noise is the guy shagging his girlfriend in the room above every other night), but some idiot keeps trashing the bog roll dispenser and we keep getting blamed for it.

    Also someone keeps coming into the dorms at night (only 13 of us have a key to get in) and removing the bulbs in the lights

    To be fair if it's happening all the time then it's a problem. But, if it's once every now and then it's fine by me. First year is supposed to be a fun time where you settle into uni life and make friends, etc.

    I found that there were plenty of killjoys when I was in first year too - can't understand why people wouldn't take full advantage of their first year - sticking your head in your books and going to bed early doesn't achieve that imho. The funny thing is these people seem to assume that you are of lesser intellect than them because you go out clubbing/pubbing etc. Learning to socialise is an important skill to acquire at uni.
