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.

New Posts Astronomy Tower


Astronomy, though quite an exciting class, is a bit of a hurdle for students to jump because it is held so late in the evening. Students often give in to the temptations of a good nap during lectures, but the astronomy professor works hard to bring excitement to the tower anyway. The professor, quite like most, takes obvious pride in the subject, and will make sure all students are getting as much out of the lectures as they can. Perhaps you'll enjoy the astronomical subject!

New Posts North Tower


The North Tower is the location of the Divination Classroom, and Sybill Trelawney's Office. This is where Professor Trelawney has resided for the past fifteen years, and she is very happy with her home. The Divination instructor is rarely seen leaving the tower unless needed, so typically, the only students that ever see her are those who are enrolled in her classes. Professor Trelawney, however, is a very kind and curious soul, and always has a moment to spare.

New Posts Gryffindor Tower


Hurry up the moving stairs of the Grand Staircase to the Seventh Floor of the castle, where you will find the portrait of the Fat Lady, up to her usual theatrics of mediocre singing. A password known only to Gryffindors is required to enter the towers, which is spoken to the Fat Lady. A circular passageway will then be revealed once the portrait opens, leading into the Gryffindor Common Room at the base of the tower. Enter inside, and join your fellow housemates inside the Tower!

New Posts Ravenclaw Tower


Hurry up the moving stairs of the Grand Staircase to the Fifth Floor of the castle, where you will find the portrait of a particularly stern wizard, prattling on about the deterioration of knowledge among today's youth. A password known only to Ravenclaws is required to enter the towers, which is spoken to the grumpy wizard. A circular passageway will then be revealed once the portrait opens, leading into the Ravenclaw Common Room at the base of the tower. Enter inside, and join your fellow housemates inside Ravenclaw Tower!

New Posts West Tower


The West Tower is one of the oldest in the castle, and is particularly cold during Hogwarts' chilliest winter months, to the point where one has to be careful not to slip on the ice that accumulates on the higher landings. A tightly spiraling staircase leads from the bottom of the tower on the seventh floor, up to a door leading out to the castle's battlements. You will often see students entering the tower with bundles of letters and parcels to send, because the school's Owlery is located at the very top. send your letters and packages with ease!

New Posts Stone Bridge Tower


The Stone Bridge Tower is located on the first floor of the castle, a simple journey for most, up the Grand Staircase. From the base of the Stone Bridge Tower, you will find a winding passageway that leads out to the school's Stone Bridge; a magnificent structure paved entirely of finely-carved stone. Here, you will find students whiling away their free time, enjoying the scenery with a special someone, or scampering to and from the castle for their day's classes. Up the spiraling staircase, there is a large archway that overlooks the Stone Bridge; be careful not to miss your step, or you might take a nasty tumble!

New Posts Clock Tower


The Clock Tower is very old and dingy, with many gears and bells inside that allow the grand school clock to function. There is an old courtyard at its base, the Clock Tower Courtyard, and at the top of this tower is a clear, class dial in the shape of a clock. This dial also serves as a window, from which one can see a magnificent view of the Clock Tower Courtyard. The old Clock Tower's bells chime every hour on the hour, and at the start and end of each lesson.

New Posts English and Comprehension Tower


The English and Comprehension tower was once an empty tower, used for storage. Since the inclusion of English and Comprehension in the syllabus, students have had to make the trip up to the secluded tower to learn about the English language and literature in the comfort and airy space in one of the highest towers in the castle.
