How to Deal with a Snoring Neighbor?

How to Deal with a Snoring Neighbor?

Q: There's a disruptive and bothersome noise coming from the apartment below me during the night. It lasts all night and is like a growl or roar. I've tried leaving a fan on all night to muffle it. I've bought a sound machine. I've used them together. I also have ear plugs. Nothing works to diminish it.

I've talked to the management about it. They inquired with the neighbor but didn't get anywhere. What can I do? I've only lived here 3 weeks and can't imagine staying for my year lease if I can't sleep at night. I'm a heavy sleeper so for this to be an issue, it's bad. Any suggestions of places I can turn?
