"His office door is always open to any Ravenclaw with a problem, and if you're in a real state he'll get out these delicious little cupcakes he keeps in a tin in his desk drawer and make them do a little dance for you. In fact, it's worth pretending you’re in a real state just to see them jive."
Robert Hilliard[src]

The office of Filius Flitwick, the Charms Master and Head of Ravenclaw House, was a room on the seventh-floor of Hogwarts Castle, thirteen windows from the right of the West Tower.[1]


It contained a desk, a bookcase and sleeping quarters and was decorated with portraits.[2] In the desk, Flitwick kept a tin of cupcakes which he would charm to make them dance to cheer up upset Ravenclaws.[3]


Sirius Black was imprisoned here for a short time in 1994 while awaiting the Dementor's Kiss, before he was rescued by a time-travelling Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, with the help of Buckbeak, who had also been rescued.[4]
