Can I play music in my apartment? How late can I shower? Is it OK that my neighbour's TV drowns out mine? What do I do if my sleep is disturbed every night?

​Student residences are home to people with different habits and daily rhythms, which can sometimes lead to people being disturbed. Under the Tenancy Act, you should show "reasonable tolerance" towards occasional brief disturbances, but there are no rules about when people can play loud music, party or run water. You should always be guided by consideration for others and common sense. 

If you are disturbed by someone, it's best if you talk to that person first. If things don't improve, you can report the disturbance to us. During the daytime, contact the area manager for your area, or outside office hours you can call the Disturbance Watch 013‑14 84 44. When reporting a disturbance, you must give your name and telephone number, but we will never reveal this information to the person being reported. Disturbance Watch staff will go to the site to check the situation and talk to the tenant causing the disturbance. All incidents, even those that cannot be confirmed, are logged. Repeated or serious disturbances can lead to termination of the rental agreement.
