Citizens will go to the HouseResidence they are assigned to at night to sleep. The HouseResidence is also a way to get more citizens for your colony.

Each level of the HouseResidence will house one citizen. So:

Building Level Citizens Housed
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5 5

For additional citizens to spawn, you first have to have enough space in your HousesResidences to house your first four citizens. After you have created enough space for your initial four citizens, you have two options for your colony to grow. The first way is to have a free bed in your colony. You can also make space for a new citizen, go to the Tavern, wait for a traveler to show up, and then give them the items they request to recruit them.

Note: To have over 25 citizens, you must first complete the research in the University.
