7. Unless you're a Muggle-born, you pretty much don't have to go to primary school.

8. If you're lucky enough to find the Room of Requirement, you're set for life.


Need somewhere secret to hang with your boo? Or just want a room filled with a giant ball pit? You name it, it's got it.

9. You can go and talk to any of the portraits, at any time.

Say you're doing a History of Magic essay on a particular historical wizard. Rather than having to spend hours reading books, you can just go find their portrait on the walls of the castle and chat to them to get all the information you need.

14. You get to just do magic all the time.

15. There's probably a ton of magic shit to explore.
