The North Oak Columbarium[1] is a large series of columbarium structures containing the cremated remains of thousands of Night City residents. It is located in the southern hills of North Oak, in the Westbrook District.


Columbarium Map

The columbarium was built after cremation became preferred over burials due to scavengers robbing graves for the cyberware implants of the deceased. Any citizen of Night City can be interred, by the choice of themselves or their loved ones, and will be assigned a position where their respective funerary urn will be located.

Many residents of Night City travel to the columbarium to pay their respects to family, friends, loved ones, and other notable people interred. The niches are usually marked with a signifying symbol, be it the logo of the interred's work, or something similar. Controlled by the Night City government itself, the columbarium is guarded by Arasaka security turrets, and holds strict rules whereas lighting candles and spray painting are strictly forbidden.[2][3]

Niches list[]

Note that some niches will always appear while others are dependent on one's actions in game.
