— Building description, Tomodachi Life

The Mii Apartments are the main location on the island in Tomodachi Collection and Tomodachi Life. All Miis live there, but married couples will also live in their own home with their children if they have any. Said children may later move into an apartment if there is space unless the player decides to let them travel. Mii Apartments will automatically upgrade to fit more Miis once it reaches a certain number of people. The final apartment can fit up to 100 Miis in total.

In the Japanese version of Tomodachi Life, the rooftop acts as a location the player can visit. In all other versions, this is replaced by the observation tower.


Mii Apartments has 3 upgrades. Each upgrade changes the number of available apartments and the appearance of the building. 

The first upgrade will have a brownish, brick-like appearance. It will expand to have 48 apartments and is unlocked at 20 islanders.

The second upgrade will have a grayish, stony-like material. It looks very similar to how it looks in the beginning. It will expand to have 72 apartments and is unlocked at 45 islanders.

The final upgrade will have an elegant golden color. It will have a gate with two trees in front of the office. It will expand to hold 100 Miis and is unlocked at 70 islanders. The top four apartments will be in the center of the top floor.


Inside their rooms, Miis can be seen:

  • Walking around
  • Rolling on the floor
  • Skipping happily
  • Running around
  • Sneezing
  • Shivering
  • Yawning
  • Appearing to clear their throat

  • Bobbing their head like a bird.
  • Scratching their head/side
  • Flatulating
  • Tripping
  • Doing push-ups/crunches/lunges

They may also play with their gifts, depending on what the player gives to them. If timed right, they take their gifts out or put it away. If visitors come over, they can play with them too.

At other times, the Mii might talk or sing to itself, or say their catchphrase or mood phrases. Here are some of the things they might say:
