I live in a sardine can.

I live in halls in a tiny box that they call a bedroom.

At this moment in time I can hear my flatmate turning her light on and off and turning the plug socket on and off and im on the 'other side' of the room,which is about 30cms away from her wall :P


Earlier on I sneezed loudly and my next door neighbour (who I have never met!!) shouted 'bless you' at me so I shouted 'thaaanks.' This is how close we are!

I obviously dont live in halls, I live in a sardine can/some sort of boat cabin thing D:

I hope and pray that either of my neighbours dont start having lots of noisy sex anytime soon! D:

Anyone else living like a sardine/pilchard?

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you.
But there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

Lol, no, but I've had that experience. Funny uni times! XD

Oh wow Liv, that sounds like very thin walls! Awkward if anyone brings guys home... :p

Charlie, could you ask him to turn it down (for the baby, say)?

My flatmates decided to stand outside my room and have a conversation, waking me up. Can't really be annoyed seeing as it was only 10pm.



It doesn't matter where you come from; it matters where you go.
No-one gets remembered for the things they didn't do.
We won't all be here this time next year,
so while you can take a picture of us.
We're definitely going to hell,
but we'll have all the best stories to tell.

My uni halls had thin walls, it was horrible.

I could hear light switches/beds/walking everything! One year my flatmate who had a bedroom above mine decided to have very noisy sex 4 nights a week until 3/4am! And then my flatmate in my final year liked to play music/sing loudly at every available opportunity and then proceeded to have noisy sex that last few months.

So, yes - i feel your pain!!

Yes. :p

Gee, maybe I'm lucky, but only 1/5 of my flats has had a roommate that had noisy sex - and even then, it wasn't too bad. Maybe I'm just a heavy sleeper!

I live in a flat, but in a modern block with VERY thin walls. Every Monday night, at almost exactly 11.30pm, the upstairs neighbours engage in what can only be described as rampant, animal sex. It makes me jealous. I think they recently oiled their bed, as, rather than hearing intense squeaking of springs and headboards banging the back wall, I can hear them.

When the neighbors go porno just get one of these little devices and start to play it. Should break up the mood next door!

Ah man. That sucks.

I live in an old victorian building. Last week I came home from work at 1am only for the kind folks upstairs to be hammering away on the floor, shaking the walls. Yes the walls and ceiling.

When I looked at my boyfriend he simply replied "yeah. They've been doing it all night." True to apparent form half an hour later they started all over again.

Can't hear ours, though last year in halls I could hear the guy next to me peeing, didn't make a very pleasant experience.

I moved flats when I was in university halls because after my one ally in the flat moved out it was just me and two couples who had gotten together since living together (not the smartest move methinks) and they were very loud and very messy plus two of them kept smoking weed in the flat and I hate the smell.

My second flat was okay, most of them were really nice except for a habit of turning all the lights off (there was a general control in the kitchen that included my bedroom 0.o) when drunk and one being very noisy at night and the smoking weed thing again which was fundamentally unhelpful when I had to be up at 5am for my 4th consecutive 12 hour shift.

We have a semi detached house. We do hear the neighbours son playing his guitar sometimes. And they seem to love karaoke! But mostly the only thing we really hear is if they run up or down their stairs.

I live in a chunky, Soviet-era block of flats with very thick walls.

I have to really put in a lot of effort to hear my neighbours having sex. Sometimes it almost doesn't seem worth it.

One of my ex-housemates started going out with my friend, poisoned her against me, had very loud sex with her regularly & then burnt my clothes for fun.

Another one of my ex-housemates dealt drugs from the house & moved a mate in to live on the sofa.

Another time I had to live with my ex and the new girl she was ****ing and they used to curl up on the sofa together etc, & laugh at me in front of my face AND behind my back.

Yes, I didn't have much luck with houses when I was at Uni.. :/
