IELTS Letter: Request for a new room/dorm
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
You live in a room which you share with another student. You have some problems with your roommate.
Write a letter to the accommodation officer of the college to change your room. In your letter
- mention the problems you are facing
- say how these problems are affecting you
- request for a new room.
You do NOT need to write your own address.
Begin your letter as follows.
You should write at least 150 words.
I am writing you to request for a new room in the halls of residence as I am facing problems with my current roommate.
The biggest problem is that I am unable to study or even sleep in my room because my roommate has a lot of friends who visit him every day in the evening. They are quite noisy and bothersome. They listen to loud music and play cards till late night. The room has just become a place of entertainment for him and his friends. Furthermore, he often borrows my personal belongings like backpacks, electronic devices and clothes without asking me. I find it very annoying.
His irresponsible behavior has seriously affected my studies. I used to be a bright student in my school but I got average grades in the first semester. Because of these results, I have lost my confidence. I fear if this situation were to extend for much longer, I would have no option but to change my college altogether. For you see I am a student and cannot afford to live outside college or even have a drastic decline in my studies for that matter.
I have tried to talk with him about this issue, to no avail. And thus I find myself having to report the severity of this predicament and to bring it to your notice. I hope by doing so I might be relocated to a more considerable roommate’s presence or if possible not have a roommate at all. As you are probably aware, next term are the semester examinations. If I am found to be lacking in those, I might be asked to leave this college, which as I mentioned previously would be a harsh circumstance.
I hope to hear from you soon.
