I live in an apt that has an enclosed hallway. It fucking stinks in the hallway from people smoking in it. Is there a way to make my door seal better. It's a wood door and carpet in both sides. Not an actual door frame with the metal bottom part like on most houses
>>
Also I don't own it so I can't replace the door or insulate further unless he won't notice I insulated the walls
>>
Local hardware store should have rolls of door seal and a rubber sweep. That would be a good start.

Yep. door seal tape is gonna be your go to. If door is an interior hollow core door, wouldn't suggest a door sweep. you should be able to get away with seal tape for the sides and top and a draft snake or rolled up towel to seal the bottom.
Honestly, just rat out your roommates to the landlord. Landlords fucking HATE smokers, discolors walls, ash ruins carpets, they tend to litter butts everywhere, and the smell is expensive to remove. Like tear out drywall and insulation and replace and repaint expensive.
So if he wants to keep them, you should ask to pay less rent because of low air quality, if not, you get rid of smokers.
