St John's University Dorm

Welcome to St John's University Dorm where you will find lots music activities. The practice rooms are situated in the roof space alongside a bar area, so go and have a jam up there or if you prefer there is a performance area in the garden.

4 Dorm rooms, all en suite
Study room
Music practice rooms
Roof terrace
Landscaped gardens
Outside performance area
Car park (decorative)

I built this Dorm as a playalong for my Dorm contest, Campus Constructors.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

Want a specific style of house or community building? Why not take a look at my profile and see what I build and then come ask me to make it!

Hi! It's a great design! Love it!
However, it's set as a community lot. And I can't move my college students in

Default community lot?
I love this lot but its set as a community lot and not a dorm. Is there a way to change it into a dorm?

I'm so sorry about that. Enter the cheat below and follow the instructions and it should then be zoned correctly.


Changes the zoning type of the lot. Before rezoning a lot using this cheat, make sure there are no Sims currently living in the lot. To use this cheat, enter the lot that you would like to rezone, and then enter the cheat, choosing one of these zoning options. Save and exit to neighborhood and re-enter the lot. More specific information on using this cheat can be found at: Game Help:Change Lot Zoning.
