Secure Facilities Locations

Facility Designations

The Foundation maintains and operates a large number of facilities worldwide, from small outposts with only a handful of staff to major Sites with thousands of personnel.


Foundation facilities designated as Sites are covert facilities, meaning that while existence of the facility is known to the public, such facilities are often disguised under government or corporate fronts. Sites are often built in locations in relatively close proximity to civilian populations, where facilities would require such cover.


Foundation facilities designated as Areas are clandestine facilities, meaning that civilians are not aware of their existence at all. Such facilities are often built far away from civilian populations and may contain highly dangerous anomalies; the vast majority of Areas have extreme fail-safe measures such as on-site nuclear warheads.

Facility Sections


Sectors are sections of Sites or Areas that are designated for specific purposes, such as containment, research, or storage. The exact usage of Sectors vary from facility to facility and is dependent on the facility's primary purpose and size.


Units are self-contained sections of Sites or Areas such as those containing Biological or Dimensional anomalies and are designed to self-seal in case of a breach or other catastrophic event. All personnel entering or exiting a Unit must typically undergo a full decontamination procedure.


These prefixes are often used to denote specializations of facilities or facility sections and are generally only used in internal communication.


Armed denotes a facility or facility section with abnormally high physical security concerns, either due to containment of violent hostile entities or threat of outside attack. Such facilities typically have a large amount of military-grade weaponry and vehicles as well as a disproportionately large number of permanent security staff; in the case of a full facility, this typically entails a detachment of at least battalion or regiment strength.

Biological (Bio)

Biological containment facilities or facility sections deal with infectious or otherwise biohazardous anomalies and are both isolated and self-contained to prevent the possible escape of such anomalies.


Containment facilities or facility sections are primarily equipped and intended for the containment of anomalous objects, entities, or phenomena.

Dimensional (Dim)

Dimensional containment facilities or facility sections deal with extradimensional apertures or anomalies exhibiting inconsistent or warped spacetime.


Humanoid containment facilities or facility sections primarily deal with sentient, sapient human or near-human entities capable of understanding and complying with instructions. These are essentially analogous to a prison facility for anomalous entities.


Protected facilities and facility sections are "safe zones" kept free of anomalous influence. No anomalies are allowed within these facilities at any time.


Provisional facilities are those that are established or built around an immobile anomaly. Provisional facilities typically contain only a single anomaly.


Reliquary facilities or facility sections are designed for handling artifacts and objects of religious or historical significance.


Research facilities or facility sections are designed for either the handling and study of anomalies or anomalous materials or research and development of new containment schemes and methods.


Storage facilities or facility sections are intended for long-term storage of non-anomalous or inert anomalous objects with no risk of autonomous interaction.


These are Foundation facilities or locations that do not fall under the standard organizational structure.

Observation Posts

Observation Posts are tiny facilities established in a multitude of locations worldwide. Often limited to small standalone buildings or single units within larger buildings, Observation Posts are typically used to monitor regional communications for flagged content, as well as monitor nearby Foundation facilities. Many Observation Posts are also used as secure communications hubs or safe-houses by undercover Foundation agents.

Facilities List (Abridged)

The following is a partial list of notable Foundation facilities. Please note that this list is incomplete; many Foundation facilities are not listed here due to operational security requirements or because their purpose and/or location are classified. Many facility designations have also been recycled over time as the original facilities are decommissioned or otherwise no longer in use.

Site-87 is a research site, established in September 1976 to oversee containment of a minor anomaly in the town of Sloth's Pit, Wisconsin, USA (pop. 17,291 as of 2020). In that same month, researchers discovered that Sloth's Pit was a highly active Nexus, an inhabited zone that has a high concentration of anomalous phenomena. Site-87's civilian front is S & C Plastics, and it possesses its own Task Force— Sigma-10, "The Sloth's Arm", dedicated to containment of anomalies within city limits. Citizens of Sloth's Pit are considered E-Class Personnel, and have knowledge of the Foundation insofar as 'a research organization is monitoring the town'. The primary goal of Site-87 is to research and catalog anomalies in Sloth's Pit, such as SCP-4040; however, it is also the headquarters of the Department of Multi-Universal Affairs, Nexological Studies, and serves as regional command for the Midwestern United States. A catalog of incidents that have taken place at Site-87 and within the Sloth's Pit Nexus zone can be found here.

The site is located upon the grounds of a manor commonly known as Eckhart House; located in Yorkshire, England. The site's research focus is the containment and analysis of xenobiological specimens, with a secondary focus of the development of thaumaturgical countermeasures and containment of thaumaturgical artifacts. Serves as the primary station for MTF-Beta-777 (“Hecate’s Spear”) due to their familiarity and expertise in thaumaturgical analysis.
