From what I know of the teaching of Ahl Al Bayt, the first step is to let them know they are bothering you. I remember when I was single and living in an apartment with three other guys. We were probably noisy sometimes. We never had the cops show up but if that happened I would have rather heard from the people we were bothering first. This is just logical.
Find the main person in charge of the apartment, and if not, just someone who lives there. Tell them if they could try to keep the noise down because it is bothering you and you would rather go to them directly rather than get others involved. Most of the time they will respect that. You might have to remind them from time to time. If they ignore you, then go to the dorm supervisor. You have a right to live in a peaceful environment, but you have to be reasonable, I mean you are living in college dorms.

With my continuous chain of transmission reaching up to Muhammad ibn Ya'qub al-Kulaynl, from al-Husayn ibn Muhammad, from al-Mu'alla ibn Muhammad, from al-Hasan ibn 'All al-Washsha', from 'Abd Allah ibn Sinan, from Abu 'Abd Allah, may Peace be upon him, which he said:
"Among the things pertaining to the soundness of a Muslim's certitude [in faith] is that he would not please people while displeasing God, nor blame them for something that God has not given him. For, verily, [God's] rizq (provision, sustenance) is not brought about by anybody's greed, nor is it withheld by anyone's disapproval, and were anyone of you to flee from his rizq like he flees death, his rizq would overtake him in the way he is overtaken by death." Then he added, "Indeed Allah with His justice and fairness, has put joy and comfort in certainty (yaqin) and satisfaction (al- rida) and He has put sorrow and grief in doubt and dissatisfaction."
