Institutions

From Urban Empire Wiki

Institutions are special public services that provide Wheel of Life benefits to the whole city. However, you can only build a single institution per city.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Institutions offer bonuses to the entire city, unlike municipal services whose range is limited to their secondary service range. Institutions include hospitals, courthouses, water and electric plants, ports, and universities.

Once unlocked by researching a path in the Progress Cloud view, institutions can be placed by left-clicking the Place institution button in the City View, which opens the Place institution window.

Clicking an institution entry in the Place institution window will attach the institution building to the mouse pointer. Clicking on the map in an appropriate place will select the proposed location for the building; clicking Confirm institution will open the Vote on new institution window, which offers the choice of submitting the proposal for a normal vote, an expedited vote at the expense of some prestige, or if available, to immediate production using private funding.

Institutions can be upgraded with the Upgrade institution button or relocated by clicking Relocate institution. Some of the institutions have predetermined locations while most can be placed wherever you want.
