Building Overview Technologies Game Strategies History
The University is the civic building that gathers Knowledge Knowledge, a basic resource that becomes increasingly important as the game advances. It becomes available in the Classical Age Classical Age, and, as with most buildings, it can only be built within a city's borders, and only one is allowed per city.

A University generates 10 Knowledge Knowledge per 30 seconds by itself. To increase Knowledge production, Scholars can be created at the cost of Wealth Wealth. Each University can employ up to seven Scholars.

Initially, each Scholar generates +5 Knowledge Knowledge. This gather rate can be increased by researching the appropriate technologies at the University, which become available as new Age Ages ares reached and Science Science Research is carried out at a Library.

Technology Scholar University (max)
- 5 Knowledge 45 Knowledge
Literacy 7 Knowledge 59 Knowledge
Printing Press 10 Knowledge 80 Knowledge
Scientific Method 15 Knowledge 115 Knowledge
Institutional Research 20 Knowledge 150 Knowledge
Supercomputers 25 Knowledge 185 Knowledge
Note: Knowledge Knowledge generated is calculated per 30 seconds from a University with seven Scholars, including Knowledge Knowledge production from the building itself.

Completing a University yields a one-time bonus of 25 Knowledge Knowledge.

Nation powers Edit

  • The American Power of Innovation: Receive a free Scholar when completing a new University, as long as the Population Limit population limit allows for it.
  • The Greek Power of Philosophy: May build Universities and generate Knowledge Knowledge from the Ancient Age Ancient Age on. They also start with a free University.
  • The German Power of Industry: Receive 50 Knowledge Knowledge when completing a University.
  • The Indian Power of Majesty: Universities do not rise in cost.
  • The Maya Power of Architecture: Universities have +25% hit points, are built 20% faster and costs 25% less Timber Timber.

Miscellaneous Edit

  • Universities have an Eject button which allows to eject all Scholars from the University. Outside of an University, Scholars can be ordered to pick up arms and become Militia/Minutemen/Partisans or to garrison a different University. While not working at a University, Scholars generate no Knowledge. Note that after a few seconds Scholars will return to the University they were ejected from, the idle time can be set in the options.
  • Universities have the Infinite Queue option: Press V, then Q to have the University constantly create new scholars as long as the nation's Wealth Wealth and Population Limit Population Limit allows for it and as there are still open slots to fill.
