@crinrictAirakale I’m having this issue too. My sim at uni ended up creating a few master pieces that are now trapped in there. She stayed at the same dorm until final year and moved into the uni house the chest was fine. However my sim got pregnant and was forced to move out, after gathering her things. She moved in with her mum then moved in with her fiancé and when she went to unpack i discovered the chest acted like she didn’t own it anymore and even a book said. “Misty doesn’t own this item”.

I lost several masterpieces, laptop, rugs and decorations.

Hi the Icya chest in Discover University is not working. Items that have been placed in the chest cannot be moved out. I've tried moving my sim to different lots and this has not helped. I had to rebuy her University items (laptop, bike, microwave). Due to my gameplay I also cannot get her mother's urn out of the the chest with. Repairing the game has not helped nor has uninstalling and reinstalling the expansion pack. The items in the chest just stay stuck in it but I can place other items in the chest.

@MissMadd15 For me it only doesn't work if I move as described in this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/NEEDS-INPUT-DU-ICYA-Chest-Inventory-Locked-After-Moving/td-p/8...

Does it also not work for you if you stay put ?

Yes it seems to be the same issue. I had her stay in the same house for the next term and both of the chests she has are either showing that "Scarlett does not own this item" or just doesn't allow me to move an item.

after my sim finished university and moved into her own house i could not access any of the items in her ICYA Chest or anything in her inventory - even her homework says 'sim does not own this item'

This was annoying. My sim went home for Winterfest to be with her mom. They're both spellcasters and they made some nimble mind potions for the student. I loaded them up into her chest but then couldn't take them (or anything else) out of the chest once she re-enrolled in University after the holiday. I put other spellcaster items in there as well and can't get them. Frown
