Sometime college dorm rooms make for strange bedfellows.

Such was the case for Lindsay Blankmeyer, a former student at Stonehill College in Easton, Mass., who filed a suit against the school claiming that her roommate’s alleged inappropriate sexual behavior drove her into a deep depression.

Blankmeyer is seeking $150,000 in damages in the suit, which was filed Wednesday at U.S. District Court in Massachusetts, citing violations of the Rehabilitation Act, the federal Fair Housing Act Amendments, and Massachusetts anti-discrimination laws.

According to court documents, she alleged that during her senior year, her roommate engaged in online and actual sex right in front of her. According to the suit, the roomate “would have sex with her boyfriend while [Lindsay] was trying to sleep just a few feet away,” and would also “engage in sexually inappropraite video chatting” while Blankmeyer was in the room.

Stonehill College told ABC News that it “responded swiftly and professionally to the concerns of the student in this case, seeking to help resolve the matter.”

“The issues between the student and her roommate were first attempted to be resolved through mediation with a residence director,” Stonehill spokeswoman Kristen Magda Magda wrote. “The student was then presented with multiple options for housing on campus, including a private room. The College also made special arrangements for the student to complete her degree while living at home. At no time did the student notify College staff that her concerns involved sexual activity by her roommate.”

However, Blankmeyer alleged in her lawsuit that that the resident director “did nothing to alleviate the problem,” and that her mental health begain to deteriorate as a result.
