We eat in Great Halls like these:
We walk past and live in architecture like this:
[I mean. Amiright? HOGWARTS.]
Our libraries are soaked in history and wonder.
[You knew it was coming.]
We have common rooms. And it just so happens that the Corpus Christi MCR (Middle Common Room) looks likes the Gryffindor Common Room. No big deal.
[Dorky, "MY COMMON ROOM LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF A J.K. ROWLING NOVEL AND I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER" selfie.]
There are places in Hogwarts--I mean Oxford (I honestly get them mixed up when I speak/write . . . great. I am that person.)--which were used for the sets on the Harry Potter films.
Like the stairs at Christ Church . . .
. . . or the courtyard in New College, where Malfoy was turned into a ferret . . .
. . . or the Restricted Section--which is the actual restricted section of the Bodleian Library, the Duke Humfrey's Library (complete with chained and alarmed books. 100% serious).
If this hasn't convinced you that I am actually studying at Hogwarts, maybe these random sightings will.
Like how this eagle lecturn in the Corpus Christi Chapel looks eerily similar to Dumbledore's owl lecturn:
[Coincidence? I think not.]
Or how we have eggs that look like they could have come from a Basilisk:
Or staircases which I am sure move when I least suspect them to:
Or, I don't know. How we have a friendly neighborhood BADGER roaming around?
[Say hello to Helga Hufflepuff, folks.]
Yep. Definitely at Hogwarts.
And happy to be here.
