dormitories
See Atlas of Hogwarts: map of Gryffindor dormitory
Each house at Hogwarts provides dormitories for the students. Those of Gryffindor are in a tower. The top of the tower is the dormitory of Harry, Ron, Seamus, Dean, and Neville.


drinking
While the students are not supposed to be drinking alcoholic beverages, they do manage to get their hands on illicit libations from time to time. After getting through OWLs, for example, a huge party was planned and someone was going to get some Firewhiskey. Ron mentioned that he'd always wanted to try Firewhiskey when he and his friends visited the Hogs Head, but Hermione sharply reminded him that he was a Prefect and should show a good example. While not actually an alcoholic beverage, Butterbeer is drunk by most of the students. Other examples of drinking at Hogwarts include:

  • Winky spends most of her time drunk on Butterbeer. Dobby uses the Room of Requirement as a place for her to sleep it off.
  • Hagrid is fond of drinking and occasionally overindulges
  • All the staff get a bit tipsy at the Christmas feast and Hagrid even kisses McGonagall on the cheek.
  • The Fat Lady and her friend Vi get tipsy on chocolate cordials, which contain a small amound of liquor.
At the age of seventeen, young witches and wizards come of age. Presumably they would be allowed to drink at that time, although this is never stated.
