Shellendorf Institute is a multiplayer stage in Splatoon 2.


Shellendorf Institute has an inkable bottom layer that dips towards the center, and a raised roof above it that is not inkable, however the side platforms are inkable. The ways to get to the top layer are near the spawn point or an ink rail that leads near the center of the top platforms.

Notable Locations

Notable locations may include the ink rail in the center of the map leading to the uninkable top of the map, making it a quick escape or a sniping area.

Ranked Battle

  • Splat Zones - TBA
  • Tower Control - The tower begins at the center of the map, below the glass roof. The first of 3 checkpoints is located off to either side, depending on which team has control of it. After that, the tower continues its path on the side, to where it will need to elevate above boxes and crates, where the second checkpoint will be located on top of. It will continue on the path to the third checkpoint which is on the right side of each team's side. The finish point is then just off a bit to the side, straight ahead of each team's spawn point.
  • Rainmaker - TBA
  • Clam Blitz - TBA
