A special little place for members to come and let the staff know that something needs to be done. If you need a thread move, have any suggestions, of just have questions, this is where you want to be.

Each house has a different common room in a different part of the castle, each secured with a password which only the students of that house know. However, just because they're separated doesn't mean that sometimes, students don't sneak their friends from other houses in. The girls and boys dormitories are separated, with the girl's dormitories containing special precautions to keep the boys out.

The classrooms at Hogwarts are where all of the classes are taught -- though some may be empty for much of the time. When class is not in session, they are a place for students to study or get some work done. They are often unlocked, though storage rooms within are not.

Located under the school, the dungeons are colder (and creepier) than the rest of the castle. The Slytherin common room is hidden down here somewhere and a handful of classes are held here as well. What most of the students don't know is that during the full moon, werewolf students (and faculty) are placed in a secluded, well hidden and specially charmed part of the dungeon to keep them away from other students.

The grounds of Hogwarts are massive, covered with green grass and trees, forbidden areas and relaxing courtyards. Anything not within the castle walls is considered to be on the overall grounds of Hogwarts. Just be careful -- there are some areas that may be dangerous to venture into.

A massive room on the third floor of the castle. The Hogwarts Library is filled with books of all sorts, from class books, to liesurely reading books and is outfitted with comfortable armchairs and couches and study areas for the students. The restricted section is off limits to students who do not have permission to access it, due to the potentially dangerous content.
CLARK TROTWOOD posted in no rain, no flowers on Aug 20 2017, 02:52 PM
Located down in the basement of Hogwarts behind a portrait of a bowl of fruit, the kitchen is occupied by a number of (very happy) house elves who cook for and clean up after the students. The kitchen is always fully stocked with food, however to gain access, the correct fruit on the portrait must be tickled.
TEDDY IBOSHI posted in better things on Yesterday at 08:09 pm
A popular destination for students who want a 'valid' excuse to get out of class, the Infirmary, also known as the Hospital Wing, is located on the first floor of the castle and, typically, where students go when they're not feeling well or get injured. It is a long room, with a number of curtained beds to ensure the privacy and comfort of patients.
ICARUS AURION posted in state of dreaming on Yesterday at 05:42 pm
The hallways of Hogwarts are a labyrinth to new arrivals and filled with secret passageways and shortcuts from the seasoned student and professor. The portraits lining the walls are always eager for conversation -- as are the ghosts that sometimes travel through them. Students beware of tricks left behind by Peeves and trick staircases and bricks lining the hallways.
PHILLIPA HAWKINS posted in FIND A WAY on Yesterday at 07:17 pm
There are a number of towers in Hogwarts that rise high above the castle -- some in which there are classes, some with common rooms, some housing bells and storage areas. The two most commonly visited (aside from the common rooms) are the astronomy tower and the headmaster's tower. If there's one thing for sure about each of these places, it is that they have the best view of the ground in the entire castle -- no matter which one you choose to explore.

Where the houses congregate for their meals and the annual feasts. The hall is composed of four sets of tables lined up -- one row for each house, though apart from main feasts, students are not required to sit at their own house table. There is a long table at the front of the hall where the faculty sits during the feasts. The hall is decorated with the colors of the previous winners of the house cup and a ceiling that mirrors the sky outside.

Hogsmeade is a wizarding village just outside of the Hogwarts grounds. It is largely a commercial district, and has lots of stores and establishments such as Honeydukes, The Three Broomsticks, Madam Puddifoot's Tea Shop, The Hog's Head, Zonko's Joke Shop, and many, many more.
MACKENZIE DELFOSSE posted in ticket to ride on Aug 20 2017, 12:11 PM
The Hogwarts Express is a large, bright red steam engine that takes students to and from Hogwarts every year. Each train has multiple compartments that can each fit a handful of students comfortable with a witch that travels through each with a trolley filled with snacks. Prefects and Head Boy and Girl have special compartments toward the front of the train for part of the train ride, but the rest can be enjoyed anywhere within.

A wizarding shopping area hidden in London containing everything a witch or wizard could possibly need. The Ministry of Magic, Gringotts, and shops containing everything a student needs for school is located in Diagon Alley, hidden behind a the wall of a pub called the Leaky Cauldron.

Hogwarts, for the most part, allows students into the school within a certain jurisdiction of the United Kingdom. Any threads taking place at students' homes should be placed here -- just be aware, unless there are special circumstances, these thread take place before or after term, or during holidays!

Sure, we would all love to sit around and roleplay, but that's not always possible! If you need to take a few days off, please post here to let the staff know. That way, we won't accidentally archive your stuff!
