IELTS Writing Sample Questions # Letter for Accommodation

Career is the most important part of our lives and it is only we who shape our careers. Sometimes, it requires us to work hard towards achieving goals, while other times it is all about smart work. This time we are looking at the problems an individual has to face when he or she is sharing the room with someone! The below letter is a letter for accommodation sent by the individual.

You live in a room in college which you share with another student. However, there are many problems with this arrangement and you find it very difficult to work.
Write a letter to the accommodation officer at the college. In the letter,


  • describe the situation
  • explain your problems and why it is difficult to work
  • say what kind of accommodation you would prefer

You should spend 20 minutes on this task.
Write at least 150 words.


Dear Sir/Madam,

I have been using the college provided accommodation for the past few years. However, recently my roommate changed and my current roommate and I are having issues because of different opinions and interest.

He is part of the extra-curricular activities and often tends to come late to the room which causes a disturbance in my sleeping patterns. Even more, often he plays loud music or brings along some of his friends for a chat. We both being from different streams, do not have much to talk about and there are times when our exams clash as well!

This change in our time tables and contradictory personalities has caused troubles in both our lives and there is an added pressure of adjusting when our entire focus should be on our careers. It would be helpful if you could either provide me with single accommodation or with someone who has a similar stream like mine.
