SCP Secure Facilities are labeled according to their function and their structure. They contain a major designation and an optional prefix.

Task Forces are now listed on their own page.

SCP Facility Designation

Command: Facility where Foundation commanders and heads of research make decisions concerning containment and future research. Task Forces are also housed at these locations. Because of the importance of these personnel, only SCP objects classified as Safe may be stored at these locations.

Site: Facility that had to be built around an immobile SCP object. These objects may be of any class.

Sector: Facility that is unusually large with many functions, one of which is housing and training Class-D personnel. Typically houses SCP objects of Safe and Euclid class.

Area: Facility built to contain Keter-class objects. Constructed far from civilian establishments, Areas house nuclear devices that can be used to clear the facility and terminate all facility personnel. These devices are detonated if the containment of a Keter-class object is breached and is not able to be contained again.

Unit: A small clandestine facility that is hidden within a typical SCP facility. The personnel of the parent facility are kept unaware of the presence and/or function of the hidden Unit.

Suitable SCP Facility Prefixes

The following is a list of available prefixes that may be attached to a facility designation or a task force to better describe its role.

Research: Foundation designation for a facility devoted to study and experimentation on SCP objects.

Storage: Foundation designation for a facility devoted to storage of objects not currently being researched.

Containment: Foundation designation for a facility devoted to containment of an SCP that poses a threat and is not being researched.

Mobile: Foundation designation for a facility or Task Force that can remain "on the move" tracking, monitoring, or guarding a moving SCP object.

Biological (Bio): Foundation designation for a facility devoted to storage, containment, or research of SCP objects with special biological considerations.

Armed: Foundation designation for a facility with unusually well-armed Security personnel equipped to either repel attacks by national-level militaries or to contain SCP objects that pose military-grade threats that cannot be contained by the capabilities of standard Security personnel.

Dimensional (Dim): Foundation designation for a facility devoted to researching or containing an SCP object with extra-dimensional capabilities that warp or distort normal space.

Reliquary: Foundation designation for a facility devoted to research, containment, or storage of SCP objects considered relics of historical or religious significance.

List of Secure SCP Facilities

SCP document writers are encouraged to list noted facilities below along with Objects present. Noted personnel and locations are optional.


  • Overwatch HQ: This area is the headquarters of Overwatch, the group in charge of all SCP projects. Overwatch consists of the 13 Overseers, representatives from political entities, and high-ranking scientists. Overwatch directs new Site construction, new SCP designations, external political relations, and the appointment of all Level 4 personnel (who in turn administer the lower-level staff below them in a manner they see fit). The Overseers maintain a strict policy against any SCP ever being allowed at Overwatch HQ, even if the SCP is deemed totally safe or even beneficial. As a result, Overwatch HQ never houses any SCP. Overwatch, their staff, their Agents, and any other persons stationed at Overwatch HQ are instructed to avoid all contact with SCPs. The Overseers are especially judicious in avoiding such contact.
  • Command-██: Located [DATA EXPUNGED]. Currently associated with SCP-120.


  • Sector-07: Medical training and research facility located in [DATA EXPUNGED]. Currently housing SCP-730.
  • Research Sector-15: A facility in [DATA EXPUNGED] that conducts research and experiments with the intent of finding a method for destroying dangerous SCP objects.
  • Sector-25: Facility in ███████, England. Contains Safe and Euclid-class SCP objects found within the area, including SCP-509.
  • Sector-28: Vancouver Island facility, dedicated to western coastal operations in and around North America. Contains mostly Safe class SCPs, including SCP-654 and SCP-709.
  • Research Sector-71: Facility at the base of Lake ████ responsible for emulating the environments in which SCPs with 'animal-like' (e.g. canine, feline, equestrian, ursidaen) characteristics were found, for the purposes of study, and initial retrieval squad training. Sector-71's secondary function is to serve as a containment facility for non-Keter class SCPs displaying the aforementioned 'animal-like' qualities.


  • G2 sites: A classification of sites [DATA EXPUNGED]. G2 sites store strains of SCP-008, SCP-129, [DATA EXPUNGED].

With the exception of Keter Class SCP-███, all SCP objects previously kept at ACS-03 are now accounted for within SCP-296.
  • Site-05: Built around the abandoned hospital that either is or contains SCP-948.

  • Red Pool Containment Site: Large facility devoted entirely to the containment of SCP-354 and entities which may emerge from it, as well as any unforseen forces which it may create directly.
  • Site-22 (A and B): Site-22A is an airport in Northern Iraq's Mosul Region that is the starting location of the pilgrimage involving SCP-036. Site-22B is a mysterious airport that only appears once a year that is the final destination of SCP-036.

  • Site-38: Small facility in rural Tennessee, restricted to Safe and Euclid SCPs only. Primary storehouse of SCPs relating to Group of Interest 388-Alpha, "Alexylva University." Populated largely by low-level researchers and D-class personnel.
  • Site-39: A central European facility that is dedicated to the detection and recovery of newly discovered SCP objects in densely populated urban areas. Currently, no SCPs are housed, though it has been used as a holding facility for SCP-███, SCP-███, and SCP-███.
  • Armed Research Site-45: Heavily armed guards both protect and contain SCP objects capable of being weaponized and are currently being researched. Including: SCP-127 and SCP-154.

SCP Vessels

  • SCPS Demeter: Publicly the USS Nassau, a meteorological ship, located in the Pacific at latitude █████████°S and longitude ██████████°W to retrieve personnel exiting SCP-120.
  • SCPS Guardian: Publicly HMCS Huron (DDG-281) disguised as HMCS Athabaskan (DDG-282), a Canadian Forces Iroquois-class destroyer. She is officially decommissioned from the CMFC. As a public cover story, she was supposedly expended as a target, but was in reality disguised as her sister ship, Athabaskan, and sold to the Foundation for investigation, retrieval, containment, and destruction of anomalous objects and creatures in the eastern Pacific ocean.
  • SCPS Defender: Publicly USS Ramage (DDG-61), a US Navy Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, under clandestine contract (under the auspices of ████ ████ ██████) to the Foundation for investigation, retrieval, containment, and destruction of anomalous objects and creatures in the western Atlantic ocean. She is also to be used for defense of seaborne and coastal SCP installations against severe containment breaches or attack by hostile forces. This is intended to help prevent incidents like that leading to the theft of SCP-112-ARC. Possesses limited surface-to-space missile capability.
  • SCPS Basisty: Publicly RFS Admiral Chabanenko (BPK-650), a Russian Navy Udaloy-class destroyer, kept on paid retainer by [DATA EXPUNGED]. Used for purposes similar to Guardian and Defender in the Baltic, North Sea and eastern Atlantic ocean. Also has nuclear and conventional strike capability and a Class-K sterilization suite.
  • SCPS Astraeus: Formerly USCGC Point Harris, a US Coast Guard Point-class cutter, purchased by the Foundation through a front organization. Used to monitor anomalous objects and creatures in the Mediterranean Sea, including SCP-1040.
