This article is a guide to help you get through life in a post-secondary residence when you find yourself residing near party fanatics when you are not a serious party goer as they are.

Fortunately for you, we have some amazing tips to make life at a York residence fun and comfortable, as well as to help you get along with everyone around you without always being a party buzz kill.
Here’s what to do:
Before you arrive at the residence it is advisable to get enough York University residence reviews. This will help you make the best decision about the residence you want to live in and it will guarantee you peaceful living throughout your time at the dorm.
It is also important to ask critical questions such as:
1. During what hours are the dorms quiet?
2. Are there any quiet floors in the building?
3. Does the dorm have a supervisor or a residence advisor?
4. Is there a certain procedure for choosing roommates?
Asking such questions to fellow dorm members will help you know if the place suits you or not. If it doesn’t, you can always move on to the next dorm on your list.
What you ought to bring with you
Because you can never be sure if you will be residing near noisy students or not, it is always wise to come with gear to help block out that unnecessary noise. Some of these essential tools include:
Earplugs: Get as many as you can because this will be your best weapon in times of distress.
Sleep headphones: If you are unable to block noise with earplugs, acquire some sleep headphones to help you drown out the party animals next door. With some white noise on your mobile hone or a guided meditation, you will be asleep in no time.
Thick blankets and detachable sticky hooks: Strange as it sounds, hanging a thick blanket on the noisy side of the room can help dampen the noise coming through those thin walls, and you can have it on as wall art.
Keep in mind that once you are at the residence you can:
Calmly talk to your neighbor or your roommates about the noise instead of keeping silent about the issue
Find friends to go to when the noise is too much or even to talk to when you are bored and frustrated
Identify the peaceful spots on the campus where you can go have a quiet relaxing time or space to study
Talk to the supervisor/residential advisor when things get out of hand or when an individual is unreasonable.
