How do I get a dog to stop barking so much?

My dog is a german mastiff mix and does not stop barking. He's 6 months I think, got from a shelter. I've told him no, put him in a kennel, everything. He won't stop barking. I'll get kicked out if he keeps this up. I've been nice I've taken him out, He's not bored hes just noisy!!!! How can I get this dog to shut up? I say this with as much damn compassion a tired woman can say it with because he also won't let me sleep. Getting another dog is not an option because it isn't even my dog and I'm not supposed to have it but I'm the one taking care of it because my roommate sucks. I haven't slept, the dog is loud, I'm not gonna have a bed to sleep on if I can't fix this, just tell me how to make it quiet???!!
