The ground floor was the floor above the Dungeons and below the first floor of Hogwarts Castle. It contained a number of courtyards, halls and rooms.

Overview

Upon entering through the huge oak front doors of the castle, students would find themselves in the vast Entrance Hall, which was dominated by a Marble Staircase leading up to the first floor.[1][2] The giant hourglasses which displayed house points were located in the Entrance Hall.[3]

To the right of the Great Hall was the: staffroom, the caretaker's office, and classrooms were also found on this floor, as was a courtyard where students sometimes congregated between classes. The oak front doors opened out directly onto the Hogwarts grounds.
