House parties and anti-social behaviour have prompted complaints. File picture.

Revellers were spoken to by the PSNI and agreed to turn down the volume out of respect for their neighbours.

“Police received numerous reports of noisy parties and anti-social behaviour in areas in and around the university,” police at Strand Road said.

“We identified the properties and spoke to the residents and advised them accordingly.

“The university will also follow up with them.”

The PSNI urged anyone with any concerns about noise nuisance or anti-social behaviour to get in touch.
