Community board


The Dorm Room is your personal room where you can change and buy cosmetic clothing items, change your hair color, skin color, and facial features using the Mirror, inspect the current Weekly Challenge Reward, review the code of conduct, or browse the Watch Menu without worrying about the interaction with other players.

There are several objects in the room that you can play with, including a bucket, darts, a ping pong ball and paddle, a Basketball hoop, a punching dummy, a water bottle, a Radio and a Whiteboard up the ladder.

The community board includes information about currently featured creator, Featured Rooms, featured Instagram postings and YouTube videos. The buttons to the right of the board open the Privacy Policy and Help Center in your web browser.

The one door in the room leads to the Rec Center from where more doors lead to the Games. To go through the door, teleport into it or walk close to it and pull the trigger of your controller.

Holotar Helpers

When you first enter your dorm room, there are several green icons hovering in various places. By pointing at them and pulling the trigger, you can start a Holotar Helper, who explains basic features of your dorm room and Rec Room in general. (You can reset all Holotar Helpers in your Watch Menu.)
