Candidates may enjoy their stay in Janos City or one of the candidate housing complexes located in the biodome levels. The Refugium also offers permanent residence to any candidates who successfully bond.

Candidates arriving at the station can request local transportation and housing from the center. Visitor service assistants are always happy to help in any way that's required.
All candidates are given a comm button that will alert them when their presence is required on the clutching sands. Candidates are permitted access to the hangar bay, biodome decks, and Janos city. The research labs and engineering decks are off limits without a security escort.

Each biodome deck has its own set of clutching "sands", although they're sometimes not very sandy at all! Clutching sands are accessible by registered candidates who wish to visit the eggs and potentially impress an unborn dragons. Clutch parents are often handy, but in the event parents aren't available clutches are looked after by egg nannies.
Clutching sands always have a security officer or two present. Any attempt to damage or steal the eggs will be dealt with swiftly and severely. Candidates caught doing so will be immediately removed from the Refugium.
