"Imagine the dorm experience you associate with college. Now imagine that instead of sleeping through classes, blacking out regularly at parties, and barely graduating after one-too-many years, that your dorm experience is in the middle of a desert wasteland, a thousand miles from the nearest scrap of civilization, with nothing to do but stare vacantly at the searing emptiness, ticking away the remaining minutes of your guard duty."
The Dormitory is a premium building that provides players with 40 workers. The enormous Nanopods cost is offset by the large chunk of population it can handle. It holds as much population as two Tenements and is the most efficient way in housing workers and using as little land as possible but at 500 a piece, it is very costly.
