The Sims 4 Discover University comes with several new Lot Types as well as two new Lot Traits. The great thing about both of these is that they are not completely restricted to being used in the world of Britechester. You can use them in any world providing that both the Lot Traits and Lot Types are compatible with each other. This means you can ultimately extend either University campus as much as you wish across the game.
- Foxbury Commons – The Foxbury Commons is a place for students from the Foxbury Institute to get food and study. Between classes, the Foxbury commons hosts a variety of fun activities for students.
- UBrite Commons – The UBrite Commons is a place for students from the University of Britechester to get food and study. Between classes, the UBrite commons hosts a variety of fun activities for students.
- University Housing – University Housing is a place for students to live and rest their head while going to University. Each University Housing can be designated for one of Britechester’s two prestigious universities.
Each Lot Type will have requirements that will be displayed in a drop-down menu in the Lot Info Panel.
With University Housing, you are unable to enter Build/Buy Mode while there are active Sims living there. This is where the University Kiosks come in handy for purchasing a selection of live draggable objects. However, you can edit University Housing if you enable the freebuild cheat (bb.enablefreebuild). If you don’t wish to use the cheat, you will have to move any active Sims out to another lot first.
University Housing also means that depending on the number of beds that are present on the lot, the game will randomly spawn roommates to fill those. The roommates could be super helpful and keep on top of keeping things clean and repair broken objects or they could be very messy and not help with cleaning or repairing objects. You will see a Maid come in once a week who will clean up dirty objects but they will not pick up after messy roommates. You can also call for a Repairman for free if you are in University Housing.
Additionally with the University Housing Lot Type, you can choose the University, any gender restrictions and if there are any affiliations to any Organizations or Get Together Clubs. These settings can be found under the University Housing Configuration Menu which is located next to the Lot Info Panel.
University Student Hangout – This spot has great prices on food and drink, so the university students are sure to flock to it.
Note: This Lot Trait is not available for Residential, Retail, Spa, Restaurant, Vet Clinic, University Housing or Rental lots.
Study Spot – A great place to enhance one’s mind in pursuit of higher education. Not only will Sims complete their homework faster, but they can study longer without getting mentally exhausted. They’ll also enjoy a slight bonus to all skill-building.
Note: There are no known restrictions for this Lot Trait.
