Decorated in last year's House cup victors, performances and meals are held here. Tables are sorted by House, though students can sit anywhere – just not at the faculty table! The ceiling is charmed to reflect the weather outside, just for fun.

However, sometimes students might sneak their friends from other Houses in. Dorms are separated by gender, with the girls' containing special precautions to keep boys out.

Several towers rise above the castle, including two dormitories, divination and astronomy towers, and the owlery. If there's one thing for sure, it's that they have the best view of the grounds, no matter which one you choose to explore.

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 the basement behind a portrait of a bowl of fruit, the kitchen is occupied by a number of house elves who cook for and clean up after the castle's residents. The kitchen is always fully stocked. To gain access, the correct fruit on the portrait must be tickled.

Under the school, the dungeons are colder (and creepier) than the rest of the castle. The Slytherin common room is hidden here, and a handful of classes are held nearby. What most of the students don't know is that during the full moon, werewolf students (and faculty) are placed in a secluded, newly reinforced part of the dungeon to keep them away from others.

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