Game Summary

Explore all the experiences college has to offer. Take classes that set your Sims up for success in engineering, education or law careers. Discover robotics and ping-pong, or make some mischief pulling pranks against the rival school. Study hard, sleep in and high-five the school mascot – just make sure to keep those grades up!



The Sims 4 Dicover University Expansion Pack adds one new Aspiration for selection in Create-a-Sim. This aspiration grants Sims both a reward and bonus trait.


The Sim wants to attend university and get a job, but most importantly—learn!



The Sims 4 Discover University Expansion Pack adds two brand new traits for Sims. These traits are inherited by completing certain actions in the game.

Higher Education
(Reward Trait)
Higher Education Sims have mastered the university experience—teaching them how to fully utilize what they learned and apply it to life! They have increased skill gain when researching on the Research Archive Machine and are granted extra money when Publishing Research Papers or Contributing Knowledge. (From Completing the Academic Aspiration)
Seasoned Gamer
(Reward Trait)
As an elite gamer, this Sim has more fun when playing video games, is more likely to win tournaments, and benefits from increased performance within the E-Sports activity. (From Reaching Captain in the E-Sports Career)
