Great Room or "Harry Potter Room" in Hale Library: Where is it?

The Great Room, also known as the Cathedral Room, and affectionately named the Harry Potter Room by students for its resemblance to Hogwarts Castle's Great Hall, is located in room 304 on the 3rd floor of Hale Library, north of Stack E. - Map.

The Great Room, as part of the historical Farrell Library with its' Collegiate Gothic architecture style and location in the Quiet Zone, is a great place for quiet study. Our students say they actually feel smarter when they study there.
