Dorm Directory (Unofficial)
****11/24/2016: Student Lounge Edition is currently under construction and posted as a separate book! This edition will no longer be updated, as Dorm functionality has returned to the main site and an official version is available under the tabs "Hogwarts > Dormitories". Apologies for the inconvenience.**** This is a comprehensive directory of all the dorms formerly here at Hogwarts. Dorms are organized into chapters based on what category they fall into. Don't see your dorm anywhere in the directory, or noticed that something is wrong? Want your dorm removed from the directory for whatever reason? Please owl the editor! This directory is no longer being updated! Please spread the word to your fellow students!

How To Use
There are currently 186/198 dorms uploaded to the directory, as of April 5th, 2015.
Editor's Note: Hello again, readers! After the successful launch of the Club Catalogue, it was brought to my attention that the situation with the dorms is also very frustrating. While there aren't as many dorms as there are clubs at HiH, it's still tough to find that perfect dorm to welcome you into their community. From the other side, it's hard to get the word out that you've made a dorm and are looking for members. Threads that keep getting bumped into the yester-pages of the forums are troublesome to dig through, and the House Feeds move too quickly for advertisements to last more than a day or two. So, in the same vein as the catalogue, I've made this directory with the help of my co-editors to assist you in your search. We have scoured through the entirety of the Introduction, Welcome, Inter-House, and individual House forums, and have reached out through the various feeds, to locate all the dorms we could. However, this directory can only be truly completed and maintained with your help, reader! Thank you to everyone who has assisted us with the search for dorms or responded to our owls so far. I would especially like to thank my co-editors: Claire Wood, Fritz Barnes, and Kaitlynn Brooks. Thank you so much for supporting this project! So, without further ado, let me break down the way this has been set up (or skip ahead to a chapter that strikes your fancy).
The Break Down:
This directory's format is also based on the Extra-Curricular Catalogue I had received during orientation day my freshman year of Muggle university. Each chapter lists dorms of a certain type or that have a similar focus. That way, if people want to join a dorm that focuses on helping each other study for HiH courses, hang out with other fans of a specific show, all the options are easy to find. Dorms are uploaded with their official name, the dorm number, current leader at the time of verification, description, and any other pertinent information, such as any off-site pages or how often the dorm has events. At the top of each chapter is the Update Status, which will be bolded and lets you know when the last time I added dorms or changed leader/description information was, and how many dorms are in the chapter as of that time. Right below that, you'll find a description of the chapter category or type.
All dorms end up in the General Dorms chapter for their House unless they fit somewhere else. New chapters will be added when there are 5 or more dorms of that type to be listed.
All dorm numbers have been verified by the editor or co-editors, and there will be a link to the dorm leader who can answer any additional questions you may have about their dorm before you join.
An Important Note to Remember:
The description for each dorm is assembled based on information posted to the dorm page, any promotional posts found in the forums, and conversations with the dorm leader, when applicable. Unlike with the Club Catalogue, dorm leaders may submit a new description or make alterations at any time by owling the editor.
If you ever have any questions, comments, concerns, or corrections to this directory, please do not hesitate to owl me. If you do not wish for your dorm to be placed in the directory, it will be removed and the number saved so that I do not accidentally re-post you.
