  • The tall and narrow windows in Harry's dormitory look out on the school grounds (CS5).
  • The DAD classroom has windows looking out onto the grounds (CS6).
  • At least one window in Professor McGonagall's office overlooks the Quidditch pitch (PA9).
  • The windows of the DADA teacher's office face south toward the lake (GF, Moody looked out and saw Durmstrang ship) and also west toward the Quidditch pitch (OP13).
  • A window near the Fat Lady's corridor affords a view of Hagrid's cabin and the school grounds (OP13).

Events involving Hogwarts windows:

  • During the Cornish pixie incident, pixies broke windows and threw Lockhart's wand out of one (CS6).
  • As Hermione figured out (GF31, GF36), Rita Skeeter learned about Harry's scar pain by “bugging” the North Tower during Harry’s Divination class when he opened the window to get some air when he felt unwell (GF29).
  • While the fifth years were busy studying, other kids bewitched snowballs to fly up and hit the windows of the Gryffindor common room to tease them (OP21).
  • Nifflers trashed Umbridge's office after being levitated through an office window by Lee Jordan (OP31).
