The architects and interior designers at Hogwarts came up with some magical design elements at the Harry Potter wizarding school: moving staircases, the prefects' bathroom, the Great Hall's enchanted ceilings. Perhaps the most magical - and useful - bit of Hogwarts engineering, however, was the Room of Requirement, probably best described by Dobby: "[I]t is a room that a person can only enter when they have real need of it. Sometimes it is there, and sometimes it is not, but when it appears, it is always equipped for the seeker’s needs."

In the crazy world of Harry Potter, the Room of Requirement became among other things a room full of chamber pots for Dumbledore, a headquarters for Dumbledore's Army (especially useful for conjuring Patronuses), a hangover-recovery spot for Winky, and a catch-all spot for hiding secret and forbidden items.

So if you were a student at Hogwarts, what would the Room of Requirement turn into for you? This list provides possible scenarios a student or anyone else at Hogwarts might use the room for. You do have one limitation: according to one of the five exceptions to Gamp's Law of Elemental Transfiguration, one cannot make food from nothing. So the Room of Requirement can't be filled with ice cream, treacle tarts, or macaroni and cheese.

Vote up the best Room of Requirement possiblities, and remember you are at Hogwarts and living in that world, not in your own house or Muggle school.
