The building's type isn't actually specified, but there are still rumours and theories of its use:
- A psychological ward: Because of it's creepy appearance, abandoned look and various easter eggs (including a cell for solitary confinement), it is believed to have a sinister history. Maybe it was used to contain and rehabilitate insane and mentally unstable people.
- A school? Although this idea seems strange, the university-like structure of the building and the various classroom-like chambers give the impression that the asylum was originally built as a school of some kind.
The building itself is made of bricks and has three stories.
