Hey all. I have successfully managed small cities and on medium size. I had started a large city for S&G and to actually have a need to a freeway. So far I have had a very successful city. I have never used a university in any city size. When I placed my university I noticed that it had no coverage ring around it. My question is, How many universities do I need, is one enough?

Thank you in advance! :)

I usually put the university in an out-of-town location with good transit to it as well as road network. This can serve as a central pod for building a satellite town that will eventually merge with the city.

I usually build high-density residentials along one side as student housing, and medium to high density commercial along one or two sides. I try to save space for the advanced research center and the health sciences center.

It is also a good spot for an extensive park or philosopher's walk with a path made of pedestrian mall tiles with trees on all sides leading to a medium or large flower garden. Outliers for a university can be a small air field as a flying school, and other things depending on your imagination.

The university is an opportunity to really make a nice complex surrounding it.
