Classroom 4F

When Cuthbert Binns became professor of History of Magic, he was given Classroom 4F to teach in. He filled the room with books on history, and kept a Draconifors spellbook locked in a side-room, protected with minor magical defences. After his death, it was noted by students that the most exciting parts of his lessons was when he glided through the blackboard and into the room.

1991-1992 school year

During the 1991-1992 year this class had a clock, a globe and a blackboard. It also had a capacity of eight students. It is unknown how that would fit was the other students in the classroom. The last day of the course the room was occupied by a Gryffindor student and a Ravenclaw student.[1]

1993–1994 school year

During the 1993-1994 school year, Remus Lupin used Classroom 4F for his Anti-Dementor lessons with Harry Potter. He presumably asked for Professor Binns's permission beforehand.
