I’d keep calling the police if it’s after hours.

You could get some noise canceling headphones and play white noise over them.

@lawyerchick13:  Earplugs for sure. Also, my FH is studying for dental school and I can be loud when I clean (vacuum, dishes, washer/dryer) and he has these headphones that block out sound and he will play rain/thunder or the sounds of a burning log. It works for him.

Youch, there’s nothing worse than trying to concentrate on studying when someone else is being so disrespectful. I would try calling the police once more. (Perhaps it will just take a while for a response? Too optimistic? I’m sure you’re not the only one to call if you can hear it for a block and a half radius.)


In the meantime, I’d either relocate to a library, coffee shop, or friend’s place, or I would find the most tolerable white noise or music to drown out the noise. A fan usually does the trick for me for white noise, and I find Simon and Garfunkel to be the perfect study music. Get some caffeine as well in case it will help your mind focus on the work and get past the noise.
