Being students at a well-known university, they should be more educated on morals (especially since it's a Jesuit university) and know that their behavior is by no means acceptable in the adult world. Living off-campus means you are in the real world.

True, you should expect people to act like civilized adults, but in reality-land there are idiots everywhere. They outnumber us by a wide margin...especially in a college town. I live next to about 5 of them as well. What can you realistically do except move? There isn't a law against being an ***hole and if you bug the cops enough they WILL start ignoring you. Then you have to find your own methods of pushing the scum out. Be creative.

The ones that go to religiously affiliated colleges are always the worst....away from mommy and daddy for the first time.

It does sound like there's nothing he can do to stop it though. If the issue is just noise I'd suggest earplugs.

If this is a major issue in your community maybe your parents can find or start a group to discuss it. Possibly work on zoning or liquor laws or something. Not sure

I live near a community college. No one lives there so it's quiet.

I go to a large university.
If I lived next door to you I'd be the one puking in your flower garden and peeing on the lawn gnomes. I'd be making obscene amounts of noise at ungodly hours of the night.
Sorry....

This is a good outside-the-box suggestion. I second it.

Some people just cant be trusted to function without adult supervision. Im sorry you have to put up with some of them. Since calling the police dont seem to be working maybe your problem could be approached from other angles.

If the place is as bad as you say then its not fit to be inhabited. Call the Board of Health on the landlord. What are the occupancy rules for rentals and is he breaking them? Report that too.

Im sure some of their parents might be interested too. Especially if the neighbors took turns calling them at 3am with the music blaring in the background and asked them politely to ask their offspring to please turn it down. Remember. Never threaten. Always be polite. Take turns. Wouldnt want one person to get accused of harrassment.

Or the neighbors could all band together and take turns playing Polka music etc during their sleep times. Hey fair is fair. You celebrate at night. We festivate in the day time. A little church organ music on Sunday probably wouldnt hurt either.

Follow the money. Students live there because it is cheap. It is cheap because it is owned by a scumlord. I don't know Los Angeles or how much it cares about things like this, but the place has to be breaking city codes eight ways to Sunday. Call the city inspector, there is a good chance that his rental license will get pulled. It would be in Minneapolis.
