The Gryffindor Girls' Dormitory is located inside the Gryffindor Tower in the opposite side of the Gryffindor Boys' Dormitory. This is where the female Gryffindor students go to sleep at night.


Four poster beds are covered in red eiderdowns with red curtains, a nightstand next to it and their school trunks at the foot of their bed. A yellow banner that says Gryffindor with their house mascot is hung on top of their bed. A wooden chair and dresser is near the bed. A lamp is placed on their dresser and on their wooden board. A wooden board is situated on either side of their bed for students to decorate. The dorm has stone walls and wooden floors. The windows have red curtains. There is also a white pillow on the floor, a perch on their dresser, and a snuffbox on top of their trunk for their pets.[1]

The staircase to the girl's dormitory is enchanted so that if a boy attempts to enter the dormitory, a wailing klaxon goes off and the staircase turns into a stone slide, sending them back to the Common Room. According to Hogwarts: A History, the founders believed that girls were more trustworthy than boys, so while the girls’ staircase is enchanted to prevent boys from getting in, the boys’ staircase does not carry a reciprocal enchantment.[2]
