Lot Cost : $0

*************************************************
Designer Notes:
-------------------------------
The residence hall consists of 12 fully furnished, air-conditioned rooms. There is a shared living space between every two apartments. These living rooms, though communal, are for the primary use of the students residing in adjutant rooms. Each room is furnished with the basic needs only, a twin sized bed, nightstand, dresser, and desk with chair. Restrooms have been conveniently located near each living space. Each floor also has a communal media center that has computers linked to the university network. Large windows allow plenty of natural light into every room of this historical building.

Amenities provided in the building include: student lounge space on each floor, a fitness center equipped with the newest equipment and hot tub, a communal dining facility, and an entertainment center. Elevators are located in the central room of each floor. A large semi-protected front lawn surrounds the building, swimming pool, student parking and a patio/picnic area.

I'm trying to upload an updated version but my nets running really badly...I hadnt had my coffee yet and apparently I stuck in shafts instead of the elevators. *blush* You'd think I would of noticed the lack of doors!

You can either redownload or be lazy like I would and follow these steps:

1: open the cheat window and type in changelotzoning residential
2: exit to NH then reenter lot
3: remove shafts on 2nd & 3rd floor and put in new elevators
4: open the cheat window and type in changelotzoning dorm
5: exit to NH then reenter lot

After that it should all be fine. Once again I'm very sorry. If you have trouble editing it yourself just pm me and I'll help you with more detailed steps. I hope you enjoy playing it after this little issue is corrected.

One of my favorite dorms for upperclassmen.

TS2 and TS3: Where adult sims potty train their toddlers.
TS4: Where adult sims make Angry Poops.

Which game is made for the juvenile minded?

I just played 7 sims all the way through college in this dorm. It was very well-planned and easy to play...I will probably never play another dorm but this one.

My only issues were the limited kitchen space (my sims got sick of mac-n-cheese and wanted to make their own food, but the cook was always in the way) and the issue of sims not using the bathrooms while someone else was in there. Within a semester I had them well-timed though.

This is a very convenient, fun, beautiful dorm to play. Thanks so much!

I just love this dorm! The great way it is build. I almost want to be a student again and live in it for real.

Please go on making dorms as this one! It is my favorite! The places like the fitness and relaxroom (with biljart, chess) really do it for me. Nice!!!

The only small problem I have is that gardening is nog possible because of the small white walls around the bushes. Like I said, a small issue.
