Instead of moving 2 of my young adult sims into an existing dorm, I suddenly decided I needed to build a new one. Out of no where I decided I wanted to incorporate skyways connecting different buildings, but keep the size of the building small…but also have an industrial/modern feel. I’m not sure I accomplished that; it feels more Floridian to me. But in either case, I hope you find it interesting! It’s also a tribute to the Replacement’s song “Skyway,” recently covered by local artist Jeremy Messersmith. A little listening music:

There are a variety of room sizes. (Not that it matters to the students, each room costs the same, unlike in apartments. So let your low-income sim enjoy the life of luxury for “four” years.) 2 rooms are 5x4, 4 are 4x4, and the two on the second floor I call suites or apartments; the “Myne” door enters into the living room, with a separate bedroom and bath. So your simmy can hide away from those mean bullies who always pick on him for being such a nerd :D. There are also five separate public areas: the dining room and lounge on the first floor, and library, game room, and music room on the 2nd floor. You could add a rooftop patio if you wanted. And the backyard has so much extra space, I put in a pool! You could add a soccer goal or basketball hoop!

I played this dorm and the cook didn't come, then i realized i had forgotten sprinklers and used the wrong stove. so i fixed that, and now the cook will come!

After careful consideration and looking back and forth at the pictures of the floors, I can only say "I want it!" And that's pretty good, because I haven't gotten any new dorms in a while. Generally, my sims only have two to a dorm with lots of space for townies. We did kick out all the townies in one dorm, when all they did was fight, so that dorm is full with eight sims. This dorm looks great. I'm sure my sims will love it.
