Cubicle

"Don't," crooned Moaning Myrtle's voice from one of the cubicles (HBP24)

Definition

Broadly speaking, this word means roughly what it does in the U.S. – any small partitioned space to accommodate one or two people – but where in the U.S. it has come to have an office-related context, in the U.K. editions of the books it is also used to refer to what in the U.S. would be called stalls in restrooms.
