Are your Sims ready for the time of their lives? Heading off to university opens up new opportunities, from social connections to career growth. From class activities to major-specific objects, your Sim will find new ways to learn! And university isn’t just about hitting the books. Join a protest, flirt at a bonfire party—there’s a lot to explore outside of lectures at the student union. With new locations like the bowling alley and SimBurger to visit, and new activities like juice pong and spray painting murals to enjoy, your Sims are sure to have the time of their lives!


  • Achieve Academic Excellence. Learning is more fun than ever with new major-specific objects, from broadcasting your own radio show as a Communications student to boning up on anatomy using the skeleton as a Science and Medicine major. Your Sims can also learn through class activities, lectures at the student union, and joining in social activities.
  • Get Ready to Party! Text books and study groups are a big part of university, but sometimes Sims just need to party! From hosting bonfires by the lake to doing juice keg stands at a dorm party, there are lots of ways to have a great time at university.
  • Make Connections and Network. Grow your social networking skill through texting, blogging, and streaming video. This builds your affiliation with the three social groups on campus—the nerds, the rebels, and the jocks. Building your cred with these groups offers unique advantages, from earning dream jobs to a coveted extra trait.
  • Actions Matter. Just like in real life, your Sims’ decisions are deeply interconnected. For example, a Fine Arts student benefits from the Avant Garde trait, develops their Street Art skill and cred with the Rebels by tagging and spray painting. Just don’t get caught by the cops!
  • Reap Benefits After University too! Reach the top job in your career path more easily with faster promotions and a higher entry-level job for university grads. If your Sim becomes a legend with their social group, they may even land a dream job as an art appraiser, sports agent, or video game developer!
  • Explore the Campus and Town. From striking out at the bowling alley to flirting with the barista at the Roasted Toasted Beans to browsing comic books at Keith’s Komics, there’s a whole new town and campus full of places to explore.

Get The Party Started with The Party Pack Bundle Pre-order The Sims 3 University Life Limited Edition which includes the Partaeus Maximus statue, allowing your Sim to throw the best parties ever. From a raging toga party to a mysterious masquerade event to an elegant formal affair, with the Partaeus Maximus statue, party guests get a mood boost and an attire adjustment to reflect your desired party theme!

  • New Clothes and Accessories: Get unique outfit choices. Togas, laurel wreaths, and masquerade masks will help your Sims dress the part.
  • Set the Mood—and the Theme: Boost your party guests’ moods and choose between toga, masquerade, formal, sleepwear, and swimwear parties.
  • Install a Campus Icon: The Partaeus Maximus statue isn’t just functional, it’s decorative too! Place this imposing artwork anywhere on campus and enjoy the traditional ambience it evokes.

    Streaking, keg stands and team mascots. It’s all here! With new places to go and tons of new stuff to do once you get there, The Sims 3 University reminds me of the Sims 3 World Adventures expansion pack. As soon as your Sim is an adult, they now get the option to go off to the Sims University. When you start the game, the university sports team mascot pays a visit to your home and drops off a welcome kit. Inside is an aptitude test your sims can take to see if they have enough skills to qualify for a full or partial scholarship to help you pay for their schooling. After you find out how much you qualify for, you can head over to the nearest computer or just pick up your phone and enroll in school. Once you do, you leave your home, much like when your sims take a vacation. Instead of setting the number of days you want to be gone and to which destination you want to visit, you choose how many credits you want to attend to work on getting, and you chose your degree. You can chose from Business, Technology, Science and Medicine, Fine Arts, Communication and Physical Education.Once you leave for school, you can chose to live in a dorm with others, rent your own house or stay in a sorority house. Once you pick out where you want to live, you go inside with everyone else and claim which bed you want for your own. The dorms are large and there’s lots to do. Pools, game rooms, workout equipment, large sitting areas with study materials and fully equip kitchens are all at your disposal. The dorms are filled with lots of other sims as well, so there’s no shortage of new friends to be made.While enrolled, your sim has certain responsibilitys to attend to in order to graduate. They need to attend classes, study their materials, take exams and work with their “skill object” that they are assigned to for their chosen degree. You have a daily course schedule you follow so you know when to attend which class.Just as important as your sims schoolwork, is the new social network system now included in the game. You sims cell phone has turned from just something to order services and call friends, to now being a major factor in the way the game is played. Sims now get new advantages and have new goals with the social network, and the sims phone helps them manage their network. There are 3 different social groups, Nerds, Rebels and Jocks. Befriending them and doing certain interactions with them brings all kinds of new advantages. Your sims will now even get texts from friends instead of just calls.Managing your sims education and social life becomes quite a balancing act. Many nights your sims will have to decide which is more important, sleep for exams or a super social party you’re expected to attend. Often your sim doesn’t have time between classes to work on their needs, so a pit stop at the local parks for a picnic lunch and a bathroom break helps tide you over till you can get home. All night and day your sims will be deciding how to manage every waking moment, there is just that much new stuff to do.Including in all the new activities is a ton of new items as well. New clothes and hair, beds (including one that folds up into the wall), new dresser, and tons of new fun activity items. Foosball tables, bowling lanes, tennis tables, soccer balls, Frisbees and hacky-sacks are all new things your sim can participate in. There are lots of school items like whiteboards, anatomy skeletons, research station, brain enhancing machines, sketch pads, new chairs and desks, computers, backpacks and even a large moving van to come get all your items. For parties and hanging out, there are now arcade machines, pool tables, huge bonfires, vending machines and a juice keg (which is quite funny to watch when several sims start doing keg stands)!The Sims University has just a ton of new content and things to do and see in game. Whether you’re daring friends to streak around campus, working in a study group to learn faster, amassing a huge network of new friends to party with every night, or mastering the new sims social network, there’s tons to do and after hours and hours of gameplay, you’ll only scratch the surface.

    The Best Yet! This is coming from someone who has Three expansion packs: Ambitions, Generations and Seasons. Before purchasing these expansion packs, I take a lot into consideration. However, I pre-ordered this one by taking a risk. I have to say that this is a great game. For some, I’ve noted that it freezes, crashes, etc., but EA will patch it up soon. Download time was the usual: 2 hours or so.This game has so much to do! New social interactions, new groups to join, like the jocks and nerds. If you befriend them, you get advantages. Like for the nerds, you have access to study groups, better grades, etc., but with the jocks, you may get the next exam in your hands, join parties, and a higher change of being popular. I don’t know if you can befriend both groups, I have not tried it.You can live in a sorority house, which is where I’ve seen all the parties go down. The dorms, which have lots to do. Like exercise, games, study halls, and so much more. Finally, you can rent your own apartment with some roommates.There’s tons of new content, like clothes, furniture and social interactions. I love it. When you leave to the university, your Sims back home stay the same. They don’t age, or nothing. You go and come back to where you left off, which sucks. I wish it was more realistic and they do their own thing while your sim goes off to college.A lot of things to do in the night life, but you have to choose. Either study for exams, or go out, all up to you.Overall, I do recommend the game, but hold off until EA patches up all the crashes.
