Faculty of Social Sciences at Brixton University offers a variety of education. Currently there are 9 majors to choose from: Broadcast Journalism, Criminology, Education, History, Journalism, Political Science, Pre-law Studies, Public Administration and Social Work. Post-graduate students can obtain a Master's degree in either Education or Law.

First floor layout: professor's office, study hall, bathrooms and lounge area.

Second floor layout: two lecture halls and a group study room.

The lounge area is for students who wait for their lectures or just want to hang out at the faculty.

  • Boring faculty building is boring. The social science students don't use any cool gizmos so this faculty is pretty generic. At some point I want to make posters etc. for the faculties that are somehow related to the subjects that are being taught. But for now this will do.
  • After I had finished building this I realized that I had completely forgotten about the broadcast journalism students. I like to keep the faculty buildings quite small and simple so instead of adding to this building I think I'll build some sort of media centre later.


  1. No, it's not boring, it's lovely! Nice and bright and open - I'm sure the students are glad to have a cheerful place to go to class and study. :)

    1. I looked at the pictures again and it doesn't look boring after all. It was a bit boring to decorate because mainly I just added desks and chairs but I think it turned out quite well in the end.

      Thanks for your comment. :)

  2. I like this lot! It inspires me to finish the buildings in my college hood. I like how you created the lecture halls. Your lots are always so well decorated. I'm looking forward to seeing your posters. That has been on my to do list forever!

    Can I bug you for a wcif? I have been looking all day with no success :(
    Where did you get the chairs you used in this lot? I know I have seen them somewhere and they come in a bunch of colors but I can't find them! Thank you :)

    1. That's my favourite thing about other simmers' lot tours, they always inspire me to build something. I don't know if and when I'll get to do the posters but I'll probably put them up for download when I do.

      I don't mind the wcif's at all. The chairs are actually from the IKEA stuff pack so I don't think you can download the mesh anywhere. I'm pretty sure the recolour I used is by Piggi's Sims. The site is long gone but here's a helpful link to the downloads:

      I did some digging around and I think recolours of that particular chair (IKEA Jules) can be found at sims2graveyard:

      Let me know if you can't find so I can try to help.

      Thanks for your comment. :)

    2. That would be awesome if you put them up for DL. I can always use more posters :)

      I had a feeling it was from a stuff pack! Darn :(
      I need to get my hands on ikea!

      Thank you for all the links :)

  3. Very nice, I lol'd at your "boring faculty building is boring"

    1. I live to entertain, lol.

      Thanks for your comment. :)
