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!
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.

As with most of the current expansions for The Sims, they are just reworked versions of ones from the previous generations. With all this in mind it is still a good addition to the series, and adds a new layer to the education and careers of your Sims.

This DLC continues the steady stream of DLC that the Sims 3 offers and this particular DLC is an okay representation of what it is like to be in university. However due to the high price tag I do not feel that its worth the money. The downloadable content adds new objectives, new tasks such as protesting and a new level of education system which really fleshes out the idea of university in the sims. There are plenty of things to do such as flirt, read books, go to lectures, or play a game of bowling with your new found friends from the campus. The DLC also adds more clothing and decor as you would imagine with a Sims DLC pack. Go get it if you like university!

Sims 3: University Life DLC, an enjoyable DLC, has many new interesting features, but it could be a whole lot better. In this DLC you will be able to help your Sims become a successful adult... or not. You may also decide to party your way out of college, but this might turn out to be a bad decision.
You will also be able to join one of the three campus groups: the nerds, the rebels and the jocks. You can also become a legend of your group by being an awesome party animal or just the most hardcore nerd in the history of the Sims University. The choice is yours.
The way you act could also open you a way towards your dream job. If you study hard your Sim will be able to move up the career ladder and will earn faster promotions and higher entry-level jobs.
Exploring the campus and the whole new town is quite interesting as well. There's a lot of things you can do while exploring such as visiting the bowling alley, flirting with the barista or browse comic books - as I said before, the choice is yours.
I enjoyed the DLC, but I could've been better. The graphics are obviously the same as in The Sims 3 so I got nothing to say against them. The DLC's price is quite expensive so you might want to wait for the sale.
