Noise complaints made against students falling

Worcester News: STOP THAT NOISE: But complaints of all kinds about students have fallen STOP THAT NOISE: But complaints of all kinds about students have fallen

THE number of complaints made against students living in private rented and university-managed accommodation has fallen significantly.

Between September and December 2012, there were 25 complaints about students who attend the University of Worcester and live in private rented homes, compared with 39 complaints for the same period in 2011.

Meanwhile, 38 complaints were made about students in university-managed accommodation from September to December last, compared to 67 for the same period the year before.

A spokesman for the university said the improvement was down to the continued good work of the student services department working with students and the community.

However, one St John’s resident claims his life is being made a misery by the behaviour students who have been living next door since September last year and not enough is being done by the university to tackle the issue.

The man, who did not want to be named, said he and his wife were regularly disturbed during the day and at night by loud noises and inappropriate behaviour, and had previously been forced to call for assistance from university security and the police.

He said while he had been offered mediation and the installation of equipment to monitor noise levels, he did not feel that the measures would be sufficient and that the stress was taking its toll on his wife’s health.

The man said: “[The students] frequently use foul language and there’s a real problem with returning taxis [in the early hours].

“We called the university once in 2011 - we have never had trouble on this scale before.

John Ryan, registrar and pro vice chancellor, said the university takes any complaints from residents about student behaviour very seriously and aims to work with the community to resolve any problems swiftly.

He said: “The students living at this address have been visited and spoken to by both the local community police officers and our own Student Experience team about noise levels and being considerate to their neighbours and we are continuing to work with the students to reach a satisfactory resolve.

He added: “We have also offered to work with the resident through mediation and also to install equipment to monitor noise levels, so that we can address his concerns. However, [the resident] has declined our offer.”

This mystery person says not enough is being done, but when the university offers to do more, he says no? Something tells me the problem here might not be the students at all...

The reason these figures have gone down is that most residents have realised how pointless it is reporting any of these acts of anti-sociable behaviour, excessive noise, criminal damage etc. From experience landlords take no action when contacted, or just ignore phone calls / emails, the university does not want to know when a problem occurs in a private house, the Council fail to follow through promises etc. I am regularly woken by loud mouthed drunken individuals (both male and female) returning home at 3, 4, 5 o’clock in the morning. Then comes the music turned up high. Until about 18 months I would confront my ‘neighbours’, but the day I was told ‘if you don’t like the noise then move’, I realised that such confrontations would only end up one way. So unfortunately us residents will have to put up with nights of disturbance for years to come, unless of course we take my ‘neighbours’ advice.

Well, why don't you give the WN all the details of when, where and who you complained to and let them do a proper investigation? Or are you content to be vague about it, like the 'the man who did not want to be named' in the report. It doesn't have to confrontational. If it's as bad as you say, what do you have to lose?

Such wonderful reporting by WN. I know the family will have given you lots more detail and information but you have just made them look idiots. To anyone doubting, feel free to move in with this family for a week, you may not judge so quickly then. Mediation was not appropriate due to a full break down in the relationship, hardly surprising after the actions of some individuals involved. And the Uni are liars..... It took months of complaints before they would even acknowledge the issue. The noise is day and night too... Not just daytime. I have personally been at the house so know how bad it gets. You have no idea what a detrimental effect this is having on their lives and their health.

Comments here disgust me. And as for the WN, safe to say I will never buy this paper again given can't be bothered to report properly. Properly set this family up in my eyes.

Oh and CJH, trust me there are logs and logs of incidents, and reports, meetings etc. Just poor journalism making it look like they have done very little to resolved the issue and did not accept help offered. The WN had a long meeting so trust me they will have been given plenty more detail from the un named person. The police support officer has been good but legally its a long process. The Uni love to bury their heads in the sand. Even the local councillor has been left frustrated by their lack of care.

You obviously do not live anywhere near the University and the various problem areas. I am not sure what bleating to the WN would achieve. Calls have been logged on various occasions to the correct authorities, but as the students know only too well, the legal process to get them evicted far exceeds the time that they are in residence at these properties. They live here for 9 months then just move on in May.

Do you think it's nice being a student in a student house? Last year I had the 'joy' of paying far too much money, to live in what was the dining room, of a loud party house, with one of the housemates also being a drug addict... But once I'd moved in there wasn't much option but to stay there. The landlady only cared about getting her rent, the uni wasn't really interested and I didn't have enough money for another deposit for somewhere else.

All the more reason why the City Council should encourage the University to build more student accommodation.

Truth must out-guessing you are a student. Ummmm maybe the fear of reprisals stops them naming themselves. Did you not read the story......The health issue mentioned is very serious and I can assure you now that if the stress of this situation causes any significant effect I will hold the idiots next door responsible. That is another reason why they stay anonymous.

You bloody idiot..... I wish this was happening to you instead. You have no idea how heartbreaking this is.

Now if they lived in social housing could get them out quicker and have more protection. Just seems normal hard working people who get on with their lives have no protection from this abuse.

Please feel free to come and live with them for a week, you will feel differently then i can assure you.

I am a student at the University in Worcester and happen to live opposite the house in question.

In the first week of moving into our student house in Worcester in September we had a few complaints about the noise levels and have since taken the neighbours complaints into consideration and tried to be as quite as we can after nights out, although this is hard when a large amount of alcohol has been consumed. If the man approached the lads who live in the house in a reasonable manner and not ring the police and University every time there is an issue I'm sure the lads would cooperative. By ringing the police it just makes the lads more reluctant to change and rebel.

The taxi situation with the slamming of doors is absolutely ridiculous. How is it possible to shut a taxi door quietly? These seem to be petty little issues which have been magnified when really they are minor incidents. If you can classify this as an 'incident'. This bloke seems to have a problem with students, if it was any other resident he wouldn't bat an eyelid!

The houses are built with very thin walls, I have been woken with the elderly lady next door having a conversation on the phone. I can also hear others in my house plugging electrical goods into the wall. This shows how thin and poorly sound proofed the houses are. The lads may be loud but the noise levels would be increased by the poorly insulated walls.

When the elderly lady next door to us made a complaint she said she slept with her bedroom windows open so could hear us coming home after nights out. If the noise was so disturbing why would you encourage it by keeping windows open. Don't make a complaint if your not taking simple procedures to minimise the noise levels.

I'm sure when the neighbours were at University their behaviour would somewhat be reflected in the lads behaviours. Students will be students at the end of the day. Everyone says to enjoy your time at University and the lads clearly are. YOLO

From your comment it would appear that it's everyone's fault, from the builders of the houses to the barman who sells you the alcohol, everyone, that is, except the "lads" who create the noise, here for a few years so that it doesn't matter one bit to them, unlike the householder who has to put up with the "lad's" antics ad infinitum. Noisy neighbours are a nightmare, noisy neighbours who rotate on a regular basis are a living hell!!

When the elderly lady next door to us made a complaint she said she slept with her bedroom windows open so could hear us coming home after nights out. If the noise was so disturbing why would you encourage it by keeping windows open. Don't make a complaint if your not taking simple procedures to minimise the noise levels. I'm sure when the neighbours were at University their behaviour would somewhat be reflected in the lads behaviours. Students will be students at the end of the day. Everyone says to enjoy your time at University and the lads clearly are. YOLO Here is a link to a sound proofing supplier: http://www.londonsou ndproofing.co.uk/wal ls/?gclid=CLXIndmFrL UCFdLMtAodQBUAXA[/p][/quote]From your comment it would appear that it's everyone's fault, from the builders of the houses to the barman who sells you the alcohol, everyone, that is, except the "lads" who create the noise, here for a few years so that it doesn't matter one bit to them, unlike the householder who has to put up with the "lad's" antics ad infinitum. Noisy neighbours are a nightmare, noisy neighbours who rotate on a regular basis are a living hell!! its all spin
