This article is about the room that members can build in their house. For the underground caves found around Gielinor, see List of dungeons.

For a list of all items and upgrades within the Construction skill, see Construction/All milestones.

The Dungeon is a room or set of rooms that can be built in the basement of a player-owned house. It can be built at level 70 Construction. The dungeon room, unlike other rooms, can come in 3 different styles, each with their own hotspots.

  • Corridor
  • Junction
  • Stairs Room

Each part of a dungeon that is built counts as a room against the total number of rooms a player can have. For example, building a stairs room, a junction, and two corridors counts as four rooms. Some players who wish to build an extensive dungeon often end up removing other rooms they had previously built.

It costs 7500 coins to make a Corridor, Junction or Stairs Room.



The corridor is a straight passage that can have 2 doors (one at each end), 2 traps and a guard.

There are 7 hotspots available:

  • (2x) Door
  • (2x) Trap
  • Guard
  • Decoration
  • Lighting


The junction is a 4-way passage in the dungeon made up of two crossing corridors. It can have 2 doors, 2 traps and a guard.

There are 7 hotspots available:

  • (2x) Door
  • (2x) Trap
  • Guard
  • Decoration
  • Lighting

Stairs Room

The stairs room is a standard square room shape with 4 doorways. It can have 2 doors and 2 guards. It can also have a staircase (going up) or a rug.

There are 8 hotspots available:

  • Stair/Rug (you do not have to build stairs)
  • (2x) Door
  • (2x) Guard
  • Decoration
  • Lighting



Stairs can be used to connect to a Skill Hall, Quest Hall or a dungeon entrance in a Garden or Formal Garden above.

The guards will only attack players in PvP mode or Challenge mode. Otherwise, they will only be examinable. You will not get any combat or slayer experience by fighting the monsters. A saw and hammer is not required to hire guards, meaning a Crystal saw's invisible boost will not work. Spicy stews and Construction teas will work, however.
