The Sims 2: University Expansion

Sims get schooled in this first expansion pack for the best-selling social development sequel. The Sims 2: University adds a new "Young Adult" life stage for Sims 2 characters, and a new "College Town" environment tailored to all their young adult fears and desires. When characters complete their teenage years, they'll now have the choice to move away from home, and into a dorm room at the university. To aid in this exciting but sometimes challenging transition, first-year students are required to live in the dorms, but if they do well there, they can eventually move into off-campus housing. The dorms are an excellent place to learn about college life and meet other students, however, so young adult Sims will want to make the most of their time there.

Dorm rooms are small and standardized, but the dorms themselves are large and bustling with an array of NPC characters, providing the player's scholarly Sim with all sorts of potential companionship, from friends and study partners to rivals and love interests. Once they've met some other characters and learned their way around campus, students may wish to move into a place of their own, or into a group house with other students. To do so, they'll need to earn some extra rent money, by picking up a part-time job, or perhaps hustling pool at the local hangout.

Many Sims 2 players may look back upon (or forward to) their college years as a time of social growth as well as scholarly dedication, and this expansion pack is also designed to account for the extracurricular aspects of collegiate life. Sorority and fraternity houses are excellent places to throw wild parties and truly cut loose, especially when they're equipped with the proper party-oriented objects. Characters can take turns doing inverted chug-a-lugs on the "Juice Barrel," for example, or engage in relaxed contemplation around the "Bubble Blower" apparatus. Opportunities to blow off steam abound, in fact, as young adult Sims can take part in pillow fights, toga parties, musical jam sessions, foot-bag circles, and even buck naked "streaking" runs.

As in the real world, hard work (and play) at college can lead to fresh perspectives and new opportunities. While progressing through school, studious Sims can earn an additional "want" slot. They'll also have a one-time opportunity to change their overall life aspiration. If they manage to keep their sanity and study hard enough, young adult Sims will eventually graduate to full adulthood, where they can truly reap the fruits of their collegiate efforts. College graduates can access new career paths, such as "paranormal," "science," and "show biz," each with its own appropriate ultimate reward object at the top of the ladder.

For Mac OSX 10.3.9 to 10.7 & The Sims 2 [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
