The university complex in the residential district houses a vast library (of entirely legal books) and teaches subjects such as mathematics, philosophy, natural and social sciences, engineering, tactics, astronomy and religion. There are few citizens to fill the seats at the University, but those who do find a wealth of knowledge in a society that respects learning - provided that learning is conducted in a legal manner and does not dare venture too close to the magical arts. On the roof of one of the buildings is a massive telescope on a swiveling base roughly the size of a house.
