The University is a non-military building whose sole purprose is to generate Knowledge, which is required to research most Library technologies and to build gunpower weapons and some wonders. It can be built once per City. However, like the University of the vanilla version of Rise of Nations, the Assembly may be built only once you have researched the Heroic Age Heroic Age.

To create Knowledge, draft Scholars at the University. Each University constructed may hold as many as 7 Scholars at a time.

Available upgrades[edit]

Pedagogics Pedagogics[edit]
