The four-poster beds are covered in the house colours with the house crest on them. The four poster beds have two shelves at the back of the bed, an owl perch on one side, a small carpet next to the bed and a wooden nightstand at the end of the bed on one side. There is a wooden table in the centre of the dormitory with a stack of books with an hourglass on top of them, an open book with a Self-Writing Quill, parchments and a plant in a flower pot on it. The dorm has a centrally located stove in the centre of the dormitory next to the table.[2]

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.[3]
