This exact thing occurs in my game as well. I have a sim in the most expensive dorm in Britechester and I have to travel with her every time she needs to go somewhere. It's very annoying. I have updated my mods to the latest patch.

No holiday events, I installed the pack, made a sim, applied for university, moved to university and couldn’t exit the building to buy stuff for university

I went in there and tested all the elevators in both dorms in both Universities.  I could go up and down both Dorms.  So its not really a dorm problem, I also had my sim go to class and he went to class pulled out his books and stopped going to class, I checked in front of the class building there where some other sims entering the building, maybe a bottleneck is causing it, not sure, he was fine the second time and went to class.

 

Anyways, it could be caused by any of the following reasons:

Residence Key, to holidays where work and school are off if the box is checked may affect the classes.  I will have to check.

Gnomes or something in the way of the elevator.

Fire, Vampire visits Alien Adoptions, events and parties, plus death could all prevent sims from going to class.

 

Edit: Work from home careers with University and Dorms could also cause this problem, as you can't be at work and class at the same time.  Freelancer careers, + Strangervillie and photo studio freelancers.

From what I've seen on the saves I've tested, this is potentially CC/mod related, 

 

Is anyone using cc beds in the dorm ?

 

There is an older bug, where gnomes spawn seed packets into the elevator, making that one unusable: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-A-CL-Elevator-in-21-Chic-Street-Apartments-not/td-...

 

That only affects ONE elevator though.

 

Please test again with all your mods/cc removed. Best to try resetting your user files as described in the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps-amp-Known-Issues/m-p/3621199

 

You won't loose anything. Just make sure to not delete any files  and make a backup.

 

After renaming, repair your game by right clicking on the game in Origin.

 

Try on a new game with nothing added back first (start new game). If it works, put back your save game and try again. If it still works, you can start putting stuff back.

 

  • Options.ini (or just re-set all your settings manually)
  • Tray Folder
  • Screenshots/Videos/Custom music
  • Rest of the save games (leave out slot_00000001.save which is the autosave and no longer needed - if you still have it)
  • Custom content like clothing, hair, skins, make up ....
  • Mods (one by one, making sure they all still work)

The rest does not need putting back, cause they are mostly cache files that recreate or log files that are not needed for the game.

@mollywalker04 This is potentially related to cc beds in dorms.

Did you edit the dorm and add any cc beds ?
