Persona 3 Reload town info

Iwatodai Dormitory (巌戸台分寮, Iwatodaibunryou)? is a location in Persona 3 and the main hub of the game. Every day, the player returns here and they have a multitude of choices for the rest of their evening.

A four-story dormitory founded and sponsored by the Kirijo Group, it is situated in Port Island, located near Naganaki Shrine. While on the surface the dorm appears as a location for students to live, the dorm serves as a second function: the headquarters of SEES, a group of Persona users dedicated in investigating Tartarus and the Dark Hour. Because of the wealth of the Kirijo Group, the desperate situation humanity is in due to Shadows escaping from Tartarus and the limited Persona users that can fight back against them, the members of the dorm are given a lot of room and space. The dorm also has a command room with technology that can function in the Dark Hour to monitor Shadow locations. There are cameras throughout the dorm, including individual dorm rooms.

In The Answer of Persona 3 FES, the dorm was closed briefly by Mitsuru Kirijo since the graduation and the disbandment of SEES. However, SEES becomes trapped in the dorm since it becomes connected to the Desert of Doors and Abyss of Time underneath, and a portal opens to the Paulownia Mall in the past, which can be used to buy weapons and equipment.

A few years later, during the events of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, the dorm was reopened because of the increase of the students in Gekkoukan High School. With the S.E.E.S. equipment removed, the dorm now functions as a normal school dorm with Ken Amada and Koromaru as two of the residents.
