The University has opened campuses across Paragon City and the Rogue Isles. Heroes and villains can take Invention Salvage and Recipes to the University to craft items using Invention Worktables.
Heroes can find campuses in Steel Canyon, Croatoa, and Founders' Falls. Villains can find a campus in Cap au Diable.
The equivalent location in Praetoria is the Cultural Direction and Education Center.
A series of tutorial missions for the invention system can be completed through Admissions Officer Lenk in Steel Canyon's University for heroes or through Dean John Yu in Cap au Diable's University for villains. Completing the tutorial awards the Inventor Badge. The character will also receive salvage and a recipe to create a level-appropriate Standard Invention Origin Enhancement.
