This classroom was used by Quirinus Quirrell as a temporary Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom[1] while his own was out-of-bounds.[2]

It is located on ground floor level at the Transfiguration Courtyard.[1] The room has four pillars and, in the middle, a pedestal for the teacher.[1][3]

1991–1992 school year

Professor Quirrell teaching in the classroom

During the 1991–1992 school year, the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher was Quirinus Quirrell.[4] He used a different classroom because the Third-floor corridor was out-of-bounds.[2]

The classroom smelled strongly of garlic, said to be protection against a vampire he had met in Romania and feared was coming back to get him.[4] First years covered the Curse of the Bogies[5] and how to treat werewolf bites,[6] while fifth years studied vampire bats and iguanas.[1]
