The Sims 3 University Life is another repackaging of a Sims 2 expansion, with the intention that a previously well received expansion will do well with some changes and additions. Sadly, Sims 3 University Life is lacking in a multitude of ways, showing itself to be a generally disappointing expansion. It not only fails to significantly improve the University experience, but it seems to backslide in a few ways, making the game not quite as fun to play.
Overall, the idea of University is a pretty strong one in a game like The Sims. Go to University, do some cool new interactions, get some benefits for having gone and bring that back to the main game for a boost over all the other Sims who didn’t go through the effort you did. Great, right? It was great in the first University expansion pack, which actually did an amazingly awesome job of allowing Sims to go away to college, have some cool new interactions and gain access to new jobs that other Sims couldn’t. It was a pretty win-win situation.
Any Sim that is a young adult or older can decide to go to college, and if they decide to go they will be transported out of the game’s main town into a separate town where the college exists. Once in the new college town area, Sims can either live in dorms, get their own apartment, or join a sorority or frat house. Living in close quarters with lots of other Sims can be a major pain, just like in real life, and now Sims can annoy their roommates to clean up after themselves.
The actual classes and studying function almost identical to current jobs and schooling that Sims can do in the regular game. Once a Sim earns enough credits to get a degree, they will be able to start out in their chosen career with a higher salary.
Having a bursting headache from learning or partying are both possible; in The Sims 3 Unversity Life it’s not only about the studying itself. The ninth expansion pack for The Sims 3 is about partying, building up your social status but also about the studying. In this review FranSor and AnsjJ2 will inform you about the ups and downs of The Sims 3 University Life.

The first Sims 3 expansion pack of 2013 has arrived. If you played The Sims 2 University, you’ll know more or less what to expect from The Sims 3 University Life. And if you liked that expansion pack, you’ll really love this one. As the name suggests, University Life adds the ability for Sims, young adult and older, to attend university and potentially earn a degree that will give them a bit of an advantage over less educated Sims.
When you first start up your household, a university mascot will bring you a welcome kit. Among other goodies, this kit contains an aptitude test that Sims can complete. It analyses their personality, skills and job experience, and awards credit for appropriate degrees. For instance, an artistic Sim with a high painting skills will receive credits towards a Fine Art degree. They may even earn a scholarship to reduce study fees.
It seems like the folks at EA just keep coming up with new ideas for expanding their The Sims 3 computer game. The Sims 3: University Life may not be a fully original idea by the development team (The Sims 2 had a similar expansion), it brings a number of new elements to the aging casual game franchise with mixed results.
As the title rather suggests, University Life opens up the higher education system for younger and older Sims alike. They’ll not only be able to attend college, but will also earn a degree to give them an edge employment-wise over Sims without a college degree — much like real life (stay in school, kids!).
