A Dormitory can house any number of prisoners, based on the number of beds installed. Dormitories can be small, e.g. 2x3, replacing the normal Cell, allowing for two or more inmates to share a cell together. Or Dormitories can be large, with shared showers, toilets, phones, TVs, recreational facilities etc. Better facilities will result in a higher room grading, which will have a positive effect on your inmates.

The privacy need suffers when a prisoner is housed in a dormitory instead of a private cell.

Death Row inmates cannot be assigned to dormitories, they need to have single cells.

Prisoners may dig Escape Tunnels through the toilets of their dormitories. Note that multiple inmates of a dormitory may team up together to dig faster.

CapacityEdit

A dormitory can hold one prisoner per four squares of space, given there are enough beds for all prisoners. An exception to this rule is that dormitory having the minimum required size of 6 squares can hold two prisoners. A dormitory of 8 squares can hold two prisoners (if there are two beds or one bunk bed), with the size 12 it can hold three prisoners, ...

Other than for the normal cell, the minimum size cannot be reduced by research of the Lawyer.

Cell GradingEdit

All cells and dormitories are graded on quality/luxury, on a scale 0 - 10 (shown in Logistics -> Room Quality). Better facilities will result in a higher room grading, which will have a positive effect on your inmates.

See Cell Grading for details.
