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.

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.
