I keep getting complains about people that couldn't go to school. How could I fix this? I tried a lot of things (like multiple universities and school bus stops everywhere). Not sure how to fix this. All streets are High Density Streetcar Avenue


I builded two universities in the opposite sides of the city, and still have the problem while both got "Classroooms full" warnings at 7:15 am

Statistics:

  • 3.566 of 4.400 Students enrolled
  • School bus stop in every place (all streets are green)
  • I have kids not enrolled living in the building NEXT to the university (literally in the same quarter!!)
  • First university:
    • 1600 of 4500 students in class today
    • 800/800 students in class today
    • 3 dormitories
  • Second university:
    • 1600 of 4500 students in class today
    • 800/800 students in class today

The layout of my city is more or less this:

    if your classrooms are full then you need more capacity Mar 3, 2014 at 10:22
  • @ratchetfreak Even if I build extra Universities, the problem still occurs. Looks more a traffic issue, but idk how to fix it. and if you look at the statistic part 1600 of 4500 students in class today 800/800 students in class today I didn't understood why this numbers.

    800/800 is how many students/places in class rooms while 1600 of 4500 is how many get an education/how many students total. expand the uni Mar 6, 2014 at 9:48

You appear to misunderstand how Universities work.

  • Universities have four classes a day: 6:00am, 9:00am, 12:00pm, and 3:00pm. At each of these times, any students in class will leave, and a call for more students will be put out.
  • Over the course of these four classes, the University counts how many students it gets total for the day, which apparently in your case is 1600.
  • At any one time, you can have a maximum of 800 students, hence the 800/800 number you see.
  • After the "total students today" counter gets to a certain amount, you can upgrade the University so you can place down a new sub-school. Each new sub-school increases how many students can be in class at once; this is how you increase the University's capacity.
  • There's no real point to having two separate Universities.
  • Only Grade Schools and High Schools use school bus stops. College and University students do not take school buses, they walk, drive, or use public transit.
  • If you don't have streetcars, don't bother upgrading to streetcar avenues, they're identical to high-density avenues aside from the streetcar tracks.

I can even see by your screenshots you've added a ton of dormitories, but no sub-schools. This is your problem: You need to increase how many desks are open at once by using the University's upgrades to place sub-schools. It's like a specialization HQ; you can upgrade it all you want, but you don't get any benefit until you put the extensions down.
