Dear Mr Schrute,
I am writing this letter to convey the problems I’m facing with the living accommodation that the college provided for me.
I’m currently pursuing my English degree here and living in the accommodation provided by the college. While the accommodation rooms are spacious and well-maintained, my roommate and me, our room being in the East block, face noise pollution problems, as there is construction going on right outside our window. The construction work starts right after sunset and goes on till late night which makes it difficult to concentrate on my work. Due to the disturbance, I now take more time to do my work, hence leading to work being piled up.
I would like to request a change of room, preferably to a room in the West block, where there is less noise, as it’ll make it easier for me to focus on my work then. It would be very helpful if this transfer of accommodation can happen as soon as possible
I look forward to receiving your reply.
