The Sims 4 How to change the dorms Discover the university

The dorms that come with The Sims 4: Discover University are far from pretty, adding a bit of realism to the university experience. Except, many of us want to modify the dorms to suit our sim's personality.

The Sims team decided to create dormitories without full building mode functionality so that they could be replaced with live dragging objects.

This means that you can't edit your dorm rooms in construction mode if there are sims currently living there. Let's see how to edit the dorms in The Sims 4: University so you can modify them to your liking!

There's an easy way to modify the dorms in The Sims 4: Discover University, you just need to enter the free construction trick that allows you to open up construction in the dorm lots.

How to modify dormitories

If you have a sim that currently lives in a dormitory and you want to change it, you can do so with tricks! Oh, how we love tricks.

You can load the dorm room with your active sim and open the cheat box by pressing ctrl + shift + c and then type testingcheats true. That trick will allow other tricks of the tradenot always necessary but nice to use to make sure everything works.

Then use the free build trick by typing bb.enablefreebuild to allow your sim to modify the dormitory. This is also the trick you use to modify things like hospitals, police stations, etc. From active careers in The Sims 4 At Work.

After pressing enter with the bb.enablefreebuild you will be able to open the build mode and edit everything in the dormitory!
