Requires University Life. uni's yet to be added to the expansion pack selection; i'll update this when it is.

a small, prefab-style one bedroom house built as a cheap college rental, but can function as a starter house just as easily. fully furnished, modestly decorated; sleeps two sims, but with some clever rearranging, it could sleep four (though with the cramped layout, i wouldn't recommend it).

comes with the basics, plus:
- television
- bookshelf
- computer
- easel
- guitar
- pool
- bicycle
- mirror


- the paperboy drops off newspapers in the backyard, by the pool. i have no idea how or why, given that there's plenty of room in the front, and the backyard is completely fenced in. the paperboy is a wizard.

- if you'd rather have a double bed at the expense of some of the extras (namely the easel and computer), you can extend the foundation right up to the pool edge without much hassle. it makes the house a little more family-friendly, and a little less roommate-friendly.

- the kitchenette lacks counterspace for preparing real meals (college!), but this shouldn't be an issue unless you replace the mini-fridge and add a stove.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
