The Potions Storeroom[1] was located in the Tapestry Corridor and was where Severus Snape stored his private supply of potions and potion ingredients in Hogwarts. The articles kept here cannot so easily be obtained at both in and out of the castle. These included Veritaserum and ingredients for Polyjuice Potion.


It was broken into on at least three occasions, the first during the 1992–1993 school year, when Hermione Granger stole several of the ingredients required in the brewing of Polyjuice Potion. It was again broken into, during the 1994–1995 school year, when Bartemius Crouch Jr stole ingredients for Polyjuice Potion, which he was using to disguise himself as Alastor Moody. Dobby the house-elf also broke into it to steal Gillyweed for Harry Potter, which he used in order to compete in the Second Task of the Triwizard Tournament. Snape suspected Harry Potter of stealing the ingredients until Crouch was interrogated at the end of the school year.
