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!

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 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.

Requires the base game The Sims 3 to activate.

1.0 out of 5 stars NO May 4, 2013
By Emma
Platform for Display:Mac Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I, just like you, read the reviews and said...hey well I am the exception. This will not happen to me. My computer is freaking superman. NOPE. They aren't. DON'T DO IT! JUST BUY THE CD! The only thing the CD doesn't include is you screaming at your computer, restarting it a bunch of times, crying to yourself in a fetal position, and wishing you listened to the reviews on the site. In any order.

1.0 out of 5 stars Freezes and crashes March 19, 2013
By Spels
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Edition:Standard
I have 10 different Sim download packs and play the Sims 3 daily. After downloading University Life, I immediately had to uninstall it due to the game crashing and freezing. Don't waste your money, the game doesn't work properly. I hope that Amazon is planning on reimbursing the customers who have downloaded this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun objects, okay gameplay December 26, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Download| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
The goodies are interesting, there are some fun new objects and outfits, and the idea of getting a degree is certainly intriguing, and there are several to choose from. After college, your sim gets the benefit of being paid more, and promoting more easily in jobs that use their chosen degree.

I must say though, I think I'm happier leaving my sims at home.

The "social circle" idea will be a hit or miss for one person and the next. You can choose from three circles, jocks, nerds, and the rebellious, and most actions that you do while in college will have an affect on which circle you run in. A vast (VAST) majority of your time is spent studying, or using your degree's skill item, and finding time to socialize or do the "fun" things in the university can be difficult.

I do love the new objects though! Your sims get the option of tagging the walls or the ground. Just like painting, only better! There is a mysterious science-object that teaches you an entirely new skill, and causes strange happenings, there is a new broadcasting station, plus an array of new beds, bookshelves, dressers, and decoratives. I think it was worth it just for the new objects.

Mac users be warned! With each expansion that I've added, the game has run slower and slower, and this EP is no exception! You can expect to add another two minutes to loading time, at minimum!

Edit: Since plugging more time on, I've discovered that there are also new plants for gardening! New additions include several varieties of coffee bean, and TONS of spices.

2.0 out of 5 stars quits a lot March 6, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Edition:Standard
My b/f bought this for me about 3 hrs ago... Well, it quits every 15 min on my mac book pro OS X ver. 10.8.2 (processor 2.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, Memory 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3). I don't think this game should do it on this computer model... So all I can say so far, I downloaded and installed it just fine, but the fact that game constantly quits makes it hard to enjoy it... I start to get frustrated how buggy and slow Sims 3 expansions packs are.
Will update my review farther later (after I played it for a few days)

Just saying, I made the bad mistake of thinking that a digital download was compatible with my disc base game and I was wrong. So if you have the digital download of the Sims 3 then this will work for you! If not then don't spend your money. I got a refund which was nice when I explained that it was not compatible. DO NOT MAKE THE MISTAKE I MADE! But keep on simming simmers.
