The first facility that will become available for players in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the School. It will become available on the sixth in-game day after designing the homes of Lottie, Goldie, Lopez and two other villagers. After inviting the villagers and building their houses, players can interact with Lottie, who will be outside the School with a thought bubble over her head. After interacting with Lottie, she will then begin the process of rebuilding the first facility.

Players will have three exterior options for the School’s design, and inside players can choose how big the room should be. Players can resize the rooms and decorate the School with unique items. All the items one might need for a School will be directly provided by the Happy Home Planning team, and fans don’t need to worry about crafting them at all.
