You spawn in your dorm but instead of leaving to the rec center you go to your rec house. They would be separate rooms so the dorm can be offline. You can invite people to and customize your house. When you go through your front door your brought to the rec neighborhood. Here you could meet others and across the street you could go to the rec center in like a ymca type building. Maybe even make a town square with shops that when you go in and actually buy items buy actually checking them out and picking them up.
