hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry is a prestigious magical school located in scotland, teaching magical arts to young witches and wizards. it sits on a high cliff that overlooks a great loch, unplottable by muggle eyes. hogwarts' motto is: "draco dormiens nunquam titillandus", meaning: "never tickle a sleeping dragon."
there are approximately one thousand students attending hogwarts at any given time. upon arriving at the school on 1 September, students are sorted into four houses: gryffindor, hufflepuff, ravenclaw, and slytherin, based on the qualities and aspirations of the student. houses are rewarded with points for good behavior, quidditch match victories, and so forth, while points are taken away for wrongdoing. at the end of each term, the house with the most points wins the house cup.

The School Library is a universal area where every student can study, or even pick up a good book to keep busy with. The library shelves are almost toppling over with thick textbooks and encyclopedias every which way, which are frequently used for school assignments and outside research. Have a little time to spare between classes? You can always go to the library and choose from a wide selection of books to read. remember to keep your voices down, thank you!

Through these doors, you will find the Transfiguration classroom. From the basic conversion of living creatures into simple, inanimate objects to the intricate study of Human Anatomy, Transfiguration is a fascinating subject for the students to enjoy and learn from! Now, be sure to arrive promptly to class; Professor Pogreby doesn't take kindly to latecomers, and might lock the door behind him!

In: Welcome to Transfiguration.
By: Prof. Emeric Pogreby
Classroom Seventy-Nine is rarely used at Hogwarts, and is an emergency hall to hold lectures if the situation calls for it. Often, students can hear Professor Pogreby's lectures from the Transfiguration Classroom next door if they listen hard enough. Although, being surprisingly spacious, students like to spend time here. Don't make too much noise, as it may disrupt Professor Pogreby's lectures.
||Donquel of Grunnion Corridor
Donquel of Grunnion Corridor is a very dimly-lit chamber, with wooden center tables for each pair of mauve cushions are arranged very neatly by the statue of Donquel himself, who is seen holding a detailed sculpture of this very castle. There are two large passageways on either sides of this corridor; the one to the right is a narrow hall with torches and portraits, and the one to the left is filled with work tables, chairs, and miniature bookshelves carved of fine wood.
