Back when I first did the extra doorways mod for schools, I had quite a few people message me about the University Student Union, its mega crowding issues and why it wasn't included. I explained how the Student Union is a shell and works differently from rabbitholes. To this day, we are still averaging 10+ downloads daily on that particular mod.
For the sake of completeness, we finally have a new mod about ready that is definitely helping with the crowding issue at the Student Union doorways in the default EA Uni world as sims are trying to get in to attend lectures. The people I've communicated with so far have expressed a positive interest, but many have informed me that they use NRaas GoHere which would not be compatible since it already overrides the same class I needed to override with my mod. These GoHere'ers would like to benefit from the new mod as well and have asked if I could do anything so they could use both at the same time.
The only way I know is to edit GoHere directly, the same way I did with the Careers/SPCareers mods for school crowding. The only change to GoHere would be how sims get routed to lots that contain either a Student Union or Library shell and how sims behave once arriving at the Student Union. Student Union lecture attendees would have some motives pushed to 100 before the lecture starts (bladder, hunger, energy, hygiene), while NPCs would be instructed to (hopefully) tend to a low motive before doing other things. Both of these actions help to alleviate situations that interrupt and distract from the lecture, like passing out, wetting the floor, etc. GoHere would still function the same otherwise (still using my code to route to the shells), but those not interested in the rest of my mod shouldn't notice anything different.
Would there by any objections to a GoHere test version? I would be happy to provide the current package files in advance to anyone who would like to take the Non-GoHere version for a trial run in order to provide some feedback. You would only need to remove GoHere temporarily while using it. Here's a sample pic showing how sims will be able to use Student Union entrances at the front AND back:

If it's a bad time due to site relocation related things, I certainly understand. Just let me know either way, and I'll pass the world along.
Bossy discussion in here.
