Wanted to know whats is down in the Dungens?

Dungeons and sub-levels:

*

Potions classroom
o

large enough to accomodate a double class (about twenty cauldrons)
o

"Potions lessons took place down in one of the dungeons. It was colder here than up in the main castle, and would have been quite creepy enough without the pickled animals floating in glass jars all around the walls." (PS8)
o

icy cold water pours from a gargoyle's mouth into a basin in the corner
o

students can see their breath in this room during the winter months
*

Snape's office and private stores

If one follows the narrow stone staircase leading from the Entrance Hall to the dungeons, the entrance to Snape's office is halfway down the cold passageway leading from the foot of that staircase (CS5). Snape's office is adjacent to the Potions classroom, or at least close enough that Hermione could slip from one to the other and back without being spotted during a commotion in class during her second year. By Harry's fourth year, Snape had a charm on his office that "none but a wizard could break" which would have prevented Peeves from getting in and meddling with his possessions, although Dobby was able to get in and steal gillyweed from Snape's stores anyway.

Snape is in the habit of keeping the place dimly lit, judging from Harry's visits during his second (CS5), third (PA14), fifth (OP24 and other tutorials), and sixth years. Snape has a fireplace (which is sometimes lit) that is apparently connected to the local Hogwarts Floo network, since he was able to call Lupin (then working at Hogwarts) through the fire, and Lupin was able to travel through the fire to Snape's office.

The walls, which are in shadow, are lined with glass jars, including the wall behind Snape's desk. Each jar contains some potion (differently coloured in different jars) in which is suspended slimy bits of some animal or plant (different ones in different jars). For example, one jar contains a large dead frog suspended in some purple liquid (OP26). Snape also keeps a cupboard in one corner containing his private stores of potion ingredients. Snape also keeps a wall clock, occasionally an extra table, and a chair or two for visitors (HBP24).

Slytherin dungeon common room
o

Entrance is a hidden door in a blank stone wall, opens by password
o

A labyrinth of corridors separates this entrance from the stone staircase leading up to the Entrance Hall (CS12).
*

Dungeon Five
o

some third years accidentally plastered frog brains all over the ceiling in this dungeon, which suggests that it is used for making potions (CS8)
*

other dungeons, including one large enough for a Deathday party
