You Live With a Roommate at University but You Have Trouble Studying because of a problem related to your roommate. Write a letter to an administrator at your university and include:
- Who you are
- The problem
- What you suggest they do
Dear Sir or Madam,
My name is Smith and I am a student at ABC University . I am writing to bring to your attention a problem I am having with my roommate that is negatively impacting my ability to study and perform well in my classes.
The problem I am experiencing is related to my roommate’s behavior. They frequently play loud music, talk on the phone loudly, and have friends over late at night, even during weekdays. This constant noise and disruption make it difficult for me to focus on my studies, complete assignments on time, and get adequate rest for my classes the next day. I have tried to speak with my roommate about this issue, but they have been unresponsive and continue with their disruptive behavior.
I believe this issue is not only affecting me but may also be affecting other students who may be experiencing similar issues with their roommates. Therefore, I suggest that the university takes measures to address this problem. One possible solution could be to provide a mediator who can work with the roommate to establish clear guidelines on acceptable behavior in shared living spaces. The mediator could also inform students of the university’s policies regarding noise and disturbances in residential areas and the potential consequences of violating those policies.
Another solution could be to create a system that allows students to request a roommate change if they feel that their living situation is negatively affecting their academic performance. This would provide students with an opportunity to live with someone who better aligns with their study habits and personal preferences, allowing them to focus on their academic success.
Thank you for your attention to this matter. I hope that the university can take action to address this issue and help students achieve academic success in a supportive and conducive living environment.
