Welcome to Lycia! You can use this directory to go to different spots on the campus map.*
If you haven't submitted an application to the university, please do so here first.
The Campus Proper
The Courtyard: Roughly the side of four football fields, the Courtyard is a long, enclosed track of land in the heart of the campus. All other buildings surround the courtyard - there is no way out of the courtyard except by going through a building. Most school-sponsored events take place here. In the past, the campus courtyard was used as a meeting spot to organize pro-interspecial actions, so there are plenty of places to hide that have yet to be discovered. While most species intermingle freely, the courtyard has small artificially-created bio mes to accommodate almost every species comfortably, with the exception of sea creatures. Nocturnal and tunneling animals instinctively know how to get to the Tunnel network from any location in the Courtyard.
The Tunnels: Underground tunnels create a network throughout the entire campus. Entrances to the tunnels can be found in elevator-like doorways throughout campus. Those doorways are often located next to regular elevators. Designed by gopher tortoises, these networks provide a relaxing and cool spot for many students of different species to rewind and relax. Students are automatically granted passage to the tunnels if they are a tunneling species, and this is noted on their student ID card. If a student isn't of a tunneling species, their ID card cannot be used to open the tunnel doorways unless they specifically ask for permission from an instructor in writing and relieve the school of any liability for accidents that occur due to the nature of the tunnel system.
The Valinsky Memorial Library: A two-story glass building about the side of a metropolitan bookstore. The layout of the library itself is constantly changing, with modern - if modest -technology and current political publications available. The inside of the library features a two-story tricking waterfall, along with many different species of plants placed tastefully throughout the library. Large sun lamps installed in the roof cycle through day and night, as if the library itself were a gigantic vivarium. The library is named after a family of sea otters from Poland and traditionally, a full scholarship is offered to otters and other members of the family Mustelidae that work there.
The Student Union: A round disk-shaped building in the upper-left corner of campus, the union is often described as the "eye" of the campus. The building contains a small sitting area with amenities like pool tables and televisions next a reception area. An upper floor accessible by elevator Students would be expected to come here to handle a variety of concerns regarding their academic career, including issues with their student identification cards, payment of student dues, and anything regarding clubs or organizations. Each club gets their own room upstairs for club activities.
The Cube: The Cube is a study building in the dead center of the Courtyard, and is intended as a study area for sea creatures. It is shaped like a cube and looks like a large sealed glass tank that extends into the ground. The water is pulled to the top of the tank via the power of cohesive bonds. The Cube was intended as a way for sea creatures to socialize with other, terrestrial students. Tubes from the Cube extend throughout the university and several open up near the Student Union for amphibious students. The inside of the Cube is bereft of furniture and instead houses one of the largest artificial coral reefs on the East Coast. The Cube has a dark past - originally, it was the target of protests and vandalism because it was believed that the Cube promoted 'interspecial mixing.' It is not uncommon to see sea creatures and terrestrial animals socializing through the glass.
The Stables: An enclosed patch of farmland surrounded by sheds and stables about five acres square. Students who qualify for advanced animal husbandry programs learn how to farm insects and grow crops here. The sheds are maintained by the students in exchange for a complete freedom from supervision. Many students will attempt to place into the animal husbandry programs not only for the prestige and recognition, but also because it is a poorly-kept secret that many of the students use the land to grow restricted or illegal crops. A patch of picnic tables made out of recycled plastic criss-cross a corner of the stables and is a designated smoking spot.
For the purposes of the roleplay, each room created with one of the following room types is considered a temporary construction in the canon of the University and restricted to the thread in which it was created. Every player, including students, is actively encouraged to make their own Miscellanious Room for roleplaying purposes. For the sake of the game and our sanity, the University may hold an infinite amount of miscellanious rooms, and there is no canon location for a Miscellanious Room. Please ensure to provide a robust description of the room that you want to create for roleplaying in the first post on the thread.
∞ Species-Specific Gyms: Each animal 'family' - and in some cases, individual species - have a species-specific gym that they rely on for their daily exercise. These rooms are usually equipped to best serve the species or group of species that uses it, and in some cases will include items like swimming pools, heat lamps, treadmills, rock climb areas, and more. A species-specific gym can be of any size.
∞ Club Rooms: Each club gets a room approximately 2,000 sq ft for all activities (except for clubs that require outside amenities, such as Drama club or Band) and storage. Students are responsible for maintaining the state of the club room. The budget for clubs is fair - most clubs can afford decent furnishings and amenities. Clubs can host events and parties in their club rooms at any time. The club president has the key to unlock the door for the club room and is considered responsible for everything that occurs there.
∞ Dorms: The dorms are seperated into species size - large species over 200 pounds, species between 100-200 pounds, and species under 100 pounds - and are built similarly to a traditional appartment for a species of their size, with a sitting area and rooms for four people. Each dorm has at least two bathrooms.
*This is by no means a final list of all of the places on campus available. We appreciate your patience!
