Ok, honestly its time to play some hardball. If I were in your shoes, I would simply just go buy a new door knob/lock (w/key) for $7 and change it out. Let him be the one to bitch to any higher up and then explain your situation in full detail to them when they confront you. When dorm security trys to make you the bad guy, tell them you want him gone or you're gone and take a stance. You do not have to deal with this kind of shit.

Fuck this clown, lock him out.

I was thinking this exact same thing.

Take all your valuables, and move them if you can (to a friends apartment, or someplace like that). When I was dorming at college, I locked everything to different parts of the room (yes, I was paranoid). My computer was locked to my desk and radiator pipe, and I had a safe underneath my bed locked to the radiator pipe and bed frame. Plus, call campus police, and tell them this guy is going through your shit and has threatened stealing your shit (or just plainly make some shit up, because I doubt they would honestly believe a kid who already has so many complaints against him). You have to take the initiative here though, and honestly, sitting on this won't do you any good. Call the goddamn dean if you have to. My sophomore year of college, I was put into a room with this crazy fucking kid (honestly, he was out of his mind). I bugged the shit out of all the higher ups on that campus, and even took it all the way to the top. After 3 days, they gave me a RA's room. I wasn't pushing for that, but just to simply be removed from the room. They will fold under extreme pressure, because they are afraid of what shit could eventually happen. Says it affects your work, your health, your immediate well being, your valuables, gives you anxiety, etc., and they will get on their knees. Just don't slack on this.

Damn reading all these horror roommate stories makes me feel lucky for having such awesome roommates. I'll echo the advice about talking to the Building Director, and or RA. Maybe pay a visit to the Office of Campus Living although they may end up telling you to talk with the RA. Be firm and explain your situation. Does your college have a Dean of Campus/Student Living? Keep working your way up the food chain until you see results. What theNoid said crossed my mind, but they might pin you on messing with school property if you change out the locks. I don't know what the consequences will be.

Good luck on whatever happens.

OP: I have had way worse roommates (no, it's not a competition). So, naturally, I have had to learn my rights and how to deal with things in a way that makes people suddenly interested in giving me what I want.

The school doesn't want to be responsible. Chances are, they have your money and don't care.

Legally, unless it explicitly states in your written agreement with the university OR a roommate contract (many schools have suites sign them) he IS legally allowed to shower when he wants, even if he is being a dick.

How do they know he will "steal" the laptop? Hearsay is an interesting angle- if he DIRECTLY stated this, he has intent of theft. If you are simply hearing telephone tag, you can't do much. It sounds like juvenile whining. You have to prove he is an immature brat and YOU are the mature one, in the right. You must be as PROFESSIONAL as possible. Get your witness and file a police report, if he heard it directly.

Damage of an item due to obvious negligence can be shown in court, however, I don't really think you want to go to court. It IS damage of property and legally he CAN be held liable for your laptop. Then again, if your university states you should have surge protectors (which you should!!!) you will probably lose that one.

If he doesn't lock the door, unless it's once again in writing he has to, isn't necessarily an infraction. Yes, it's discourteous, but nothing legally wrong.

The best news of all: (I had to do this for a bad situation. NO, it's not "low," it's "creative.")

You go to the health center, distressed. The pain in your leg is unbearable now and your health is being put into jeopardy because of undue stress. The situation is putting your health at risk. You'd HATE to have to press formal charges against the university for worsening your condition, but they have been alerted and, alas, you might have no choice. (once health professionals are involved, they can go to your RD, RA, etc. They usually get things done then and there if your story seems legit.)

You explain you are constantly feeling anxious, have insomnia, and are having mild panic attacks due to THREATS and other signs of health deterioration. If he is not removed, you will be taking different action.

Then the bomb:

you speak with his parents. You are "concerned with his reckless behavior and strange, sudden bouts of confusion, depression, and signs that he may be going through a mental breakdown." You can tell them you fear for your safety as well as his. Tell them things like he doesn't have personal hygiene most nights, has insomnia, and tell them what he's doing to you.

Chances are, mommy and daddy are paying for everything. You can explain to them, you ALREADY spoke with the health center about your aggravated condition and the police about your broken laptop and you'd HATE to have to bring this to the attention of an attorney (don't say sue.) but will have to if they don't attempt to rectify the situation. Trust me, he won't want daddy involved.

For an unnecessary extra zing, they might want to come up to see him. Right before they do, mess the place up a bit. Show them how he "lives." How it effects you. If it strikes your fancy, use personal things like, if his parents are religious, make a gay porn magazine visible.

He is violating university policy too. find your student handbook and code of conduct about dorms. HIGHLIGHT and notate all of what he's doing and also student conduct. The university has NO choice but to comply with your written contract.

I should write a book on my shitty roommates and court dates....




p.s. if you don't have his parents' info...send me a PM.

hi xcric

if you could go ahead and disregard sbu's "advice" about involving your nutjob roomie's parents, that would be just super duper. why anyone would even intimate involving the parent's of someone who has already made threats against you is just... well, you know what it is.

go see the dean of student affairs. your school likely has one. tell him/her what the situation is, what the RA/RD has done/not done, and what you would like the remedy to be. i can pretty much guarantee that if you go that high in authority, the problem will be taken care of almost immediately.

I am not sure that SBU's advice about calling parents is a good idea, that would only work on certain kinds of parents. It would not work on parents who believe their son can do no wrong and will spend any amount of money in legal fees to clear their name even if they are 100% guilty. Or shitty parents who don't give a shit.

Hey hey hey. It works on certain kinds of parents like the other guy said. I've seen it work wonders.

You have plenty against this guy without lying about it. I would put another lock on the door and explain your case if it becomes an issue.

get a couple of big friends, escort him way outside of the University's premises (by any means necessary) and then get them to beat the shit out of him.

Ok, that's actually horrible advice, but it's probably what he deserves

Alternatively, find a way to set up some sort of time lapse webcam or something in case he tries to jack your shit.
