While Kimberly lost her scholarship after cheating on her economics exam in the season one finale, Bela is starting a new all-female comedy magazine, Leighton is exploring her sexuality, and Whitney is figuring out who she is outside of soccer season.

Per IMDb, The Sex Lives of College Girls' first season was filmed at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, and Warner Brothers Studio in Burbank, California, in June 2021. The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that the show featured "exterior shots on and around campus extensively through its first season."
Showrunner Mindy Kaling even gave the publication a shoutout on Twitter, writing "We loved shooting in beautiful Poughkeepsie! The town and people in it are the best. Our cast and crew loved every minute of our stay there."
For season two, however, the show was filmed across the University of California in Los Angeles and the University of Washington from June to August 2022. According to a report by the University of Washington, filming took place on their Seattle campus, "primarily in the Quad." The university also revealed that around 100 students were hired as extras and that the crew was made up of local artists, vendors, and freelancers.
