The Trophy Room is a room on the third floor of the Hogwarts Castle. Awards, trophies, cups, plates, shields, statues, and medals are kept in crystal glass displays in this room. This room also contains a list of Head Boys and Head Girls. Prominently displayed are Hogwarts Awards for Services to the School, with known recipients being Tom Marvolo Riddle, Harry Potter and Ron Weasley. According to Draco Malfoy, the room is always left unlocked, even past the students' curfew. The Trophy Room is connected to an Armour Gallery.

Hogwarts has a trophy room where all the old awards, trophies, statues, cups, plates, shields, and medals are kept in crystal display cases. There is also a list of all the head boys and girls. It's adjacent to a long gallery full of suits of armor. Peeves likes to bounce around the trophy room.

In 1991, Harry and Ron agreed to have a wizard's duel with Draco Malfoy and Vincent Crabbe in the Trophy Room. However, the latter pair never showed up. This meant Harry and Ron, as well as Hermione (who joined to make sure that if they were caught, they would tell the truth) and Neville Longbottom (who forgot the password to the Gryffindor Tower), nearly being caught by Argus Filch. That in turn led to the discovery of Fluffy and the trapdoor.

In 1992, Ron was given detention by Professor McGonagall, his sentence being to clean the trophies in the room with Filch without using magic, for crashing the Flying Ford Anglia into the Whomping Willow. Ron had a slug-vomiting attack from an earlier backfired charm, and got Tom Riddle 's trophy all covered with slug and slime, resulting in him having to clean it repeatedly. It was from this incident that Ron learned about Riddle, and later told it to Harry and Hermione, thus providing the link to Riddle's diary. Despite this useful incident, Ron still highly resented this detention. Harry later visited the Trophy Room with Ron ("who told him he'd seen enough of the trophy room to last him a lifetime") searching for clues, but the only things he turned up were finding Riddle's name on an old Medal for Magical Merit and a list of Head Boys.

In December 1993, on the day of Hogsmeade trip just before the Christmas holidays, Harry Potter observed Peeves bouncing around the Trophy Room the first time that he set eyes upon the Marauder's Map. He observed this again in early 1995 after exiting the Prefects' bathroom, which he had visited to solve his golden egg clue.

Most likely, in 1995, the Triwizard Cup was placed here as well.
