Requires The Sims 3 (base game) to use this DLC


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 learn outside of lectures at the student union. With new locations like the bowling alley and SimBurger to explore, and new activities like juice pong and spray painting murals to enjoy, your Sims are sure to have the time of their lives!

Key Features:

  • 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 assembling your skeleton as a Science major. Your Sims can also learn outside of the classroom 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. There are three social groups on campus—the nerds, the rebels, and the jocks. Socializing with members of each group offers its own unique advantages, from unlocking dream jobs to an extra trait.

  • Tap into Your Defiant Side! Sims can express themselves by organizing or attending protests, creating murals and graffiti, and even cheating on exams.

  • Actions Matter. Just like in real life, the decisions your Sims make across academics, socializing, and social groups affect each other in an interconnected way.

  • 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 the Keith’s Komics, there’s a whole new town and campus full of places to explore.

Neat Experience

SpaceAce | Sept. 2, 2015 | See all SpaceAce's reviews »

The University EP is quite worth it. New clothing, jobs, other additions and even a degree. The new area, Sims University is quite interesting. Social groups, blogs, are very neat. Though the college experience really is a bit short, and it's too bad the terms aren't longer. However there is the option of going back so maybe...? Anyway, there are some neat things added to the game, for furniture, activities and clothing. In conclusion, I do believe this is an EP worth getting.


Fun, then it ends

The whole university experience seems a bit to short. It gets fun, the experience i fun but then it's over after 2 weeks. I thought they should have added more options for a longer term. In saying that, this is a fun expansion and the whole university is like a whole other world along with a lot of furniture, clothing, and other aspects added to the game in general. You can go back to college, so I guess that makes up for the fact that it ends too soon.


A very worthy expansion

In a game with possibly too many this one I think is worth getting. It adds a lot of new careers and opens up a new area and gameplay. The new social groups are fun. And you can repeat it multiple times in different ways. An expansion I definately think is worth getting.


Totally new Sims 3 experience

I never played Sims 3 half as much as my sister, so I believe her opinion is much more accurate. She claims that The Sims 3: University Life is the best expansion to any Sims game so far, and I will not argue. This DLC expands your game in many ways - new locations are added, parties are much more entertaining, the whole concept of learning is now more detailed and interesting as you also get to learn from social activities. The society at the campus is interesting and detailed - it is divided into three groups, and each of them can put your life and career on a completely new track by unlocking new traits, jobs and options. There's so much more to the expansion, that it can be considered a completely new and fresh Sims 3 experience.
