s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments The Defense Against the Dark Arts Classroom

Harry and the other Gryffindors have a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher every year, but the classroom remains the same. In the films, a huge dragon skeleton hangs over the classroom until it is dropped and smashed by the pixies which Lockhart brought into the first Second-Year class of the 1992-1993. This is only a film invention, however; there is no mention of a dragon skeleton in the books, and if there was is probably wouldn't be in the DADA classroom. Dragons aren't Dark Creatures.

The room has windows looking out onto the grounds (out of which the pixies threw Lockhart's wand). An iron chandelier hangs from the ceiling, although it broke loose and fell during the pixie incident.

The DADA teacher's office and quarters are located on the second floor, which is represented nicely in the films with the use of a staircase coming into the classroom.

The Defense Against the Dark Arts classroom is located on the third floor. In 1991, Professor Quirinus Quirrell taught in a different classroom because the Third Floor Corridor was out of bounds. An iron chandelier hung from the ceiling, as well as a dragon's skeleton. On one end of the classroom stands a projector that is activated by magic. Several desks and tables can be found in the classroom as well as some sets of large windows. The classroom decoration had several changes over the years, spanning from lots of pictures of Gilderoy Lockhart to tons of skeletons and Shrunken Heads.
