Noise pollution can be very problematic especially in shared-living facilities such as student dormitories. After conducting interviews with nine students, we found that students are usually not aware of the level of noise pollution they are producing as part of their everyday activities. To address this challenge, we explore how to augment the awareness and communication of environmental noise among dorm residents through an ambient awareness system: PeaceKeeper. We describe the initial design, implementation and concept validation of PeaceKeeper with two students living in contiguous rooms at the same dormitory. Based on our initial findings, we highlight how ambient awareness systems can provide opportunities to make students aware of their own level of noise to avoid disturbing their neighbours.
