The Sims 4 Discover University: Welcome to Britechester

Presented by EA Game Changers

Welcome to Britechester!

“Begin a new chapter in the historical University of Britechester or modern Foxbury Institute. Live in a dorm room or off-campus in the welcoming town of Gibbs Hill. Explore Britechester on a bicycle, spend time in the student commons, and have a study session at the library. Cheer on the student body at a school spirit event and wear school colours to show your Sim’s pride.”

The world is essentially divided into three areas. Foxbury Institute Campus on the left-hand side, Gibbs Hill in the middle and University of Britechester Campus on the right-hand side. There is a total of thirteen lots in Britechester although nine of these are tied to the Universities.

Foxbury Institute Campus

“Foxbury Institute may seem young compared to the historical town surrounding it, but it has quickly distinguished itself in academia. For the students who have worked hard to attend Foxbury Institute, it’s not just work, but the pursuit of personal passions that keeps this campus bustling.”

  • Hi everyone, I’m Kathleen – Respectful. I love, love the Sims. I’m 63 and have been playing for at least 18 yrs. Although I’m not as teckie as you young kids. I would love to see sims let us build roads anywhere so my sims can live in the mountains and woods. Explore caves and me go with them to see what is going on. Not like the graveyard they go in we don’t. Visit other plants in the rocket with my sims- Sims Startrack. In Sim 4 we can only build where the game lets you not alot of yard and it looks like there is more territory but cant go there just looks like ripples in sand. We should beable to follow our Sims everywhere. Yes, more variety in flooring, walls ect.. Things to build and decorated with. Beable to go on a cruise and take a boat out in the rivers and fish. In Sims 3 Paradise Island you can do some of these things. There are to many buildings our Sims go and we cannot. Also for it not to take so long to get things done, building the rocket, going to work and trying to job and get it done. Just takes forever. We should beable to climb trees and fix rooftop, sew clothing, paint our homes. All the new stuff packages you have showed we need. Well thats all for now, a happy Sims is a fun Sims.

    • I’m 52 and I’ve been playing since Sims 3 came out. My niece was a teenager and got me into playing. I agree with a lot you said above. I really miss the open worlds in Sims 3, the cars, movie theater, picnic and tossing the baseball around. I wish they wouldn’t worry so much about players with computers that can’t keep up.
      I agree with you that it takes way too long to reach the top of the careers, build things and raising kids is way to complicated. I also don’t like that a lot of careers have long hours and few days off. Mainly the ones in Get To Work.

  • Hey. I have a question about the two universities. Is there any way you can study at both Britechester and Foxbury? Can you, for example, take a history major/minor at Britechester and Biology minor/major at Foxbury at the same time?
    And one last question. After first term, can you move back into a dorm or is the dorm only for first term?
