    nvm. I think I figured it out using SP to add the active family to the home. Just hoping this won't glitch the save. From the searches I've made about this on the web, seems lots of ppl are saying it isn't possible from a vanilla standpoint. So here's to hoping the magic of Twallan's SP will rule the day!

      SP has nothing to do with the ability of the active household to move houses. And, in fact, if you move houses while in Uni World, the active household will lose its Uni Student status and the academic term will be over, or at least this has been my experience. I think you ought to be able to purchase a vacation home there though for use on a future visit but that would require the Traveler mod and I don't see why this would be necessary unless you absolutely want to own the house.

      If you wish to reserve an off-campus house so that the locals do not move into it, which otherwise they would have every right to do, the official method is to load up Uni World in Edit Town before traveling there (or do this just at the end of a prior term), change the lot type to Community > Anything, then change it again to Residential > Player Ownable so that the designation sticks. The unofficial way, which works just as well, is to pull out the refrigerator as inactives will never move into a house on their own that lacks one. Of course, put the fridge back in after arrival each term so your sims have one to use while there then pull it out again before returning home.

    Igazor, how do you enable SP to allow students to move while at Uni? I enabled the "Household move" and "Single Sim only" move options in SP. Then bought a residential property which I'd custom designed as the house where my Sims would stay at Uni. Evicted the squatter Sims the game automatically adds from Edit Town view. Then had one of my house hold sims buy this property using the PC. Then tried to move them into it using the phone. But the only option that comes up when selecting the Real Estate & Travel option on the phone is "Travel". Which is for WA and other custom worlds I installed.

    What am I missing here to enable this option for my sims to move/leave the 🌺🌺🌺🌺 dorms while at Uni?

    Hey! I noticed that you helped another person get the Sims 3 to recognize and AMD Vega 8 graphics card, I have made it so far as to get the graphics card to show up as "found" in the device config, but I am really struggling with getting it to match. Pleeeeeease help!

      An AMD Vega 8 is an integrated graphics chip, it is not a dedicated graphics card. Seeking formal recognition for it is I'm afraid not going to do much of anything for the game.
