The Marble Staircase Tower[1] is a tower of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It is probably the most prominent and recognisable feature of Hogwarts Castle. The tower is a circular shape and has a cone shaped roof.

The tower gets its name from the large staircase which connects the Entrance Hall to the Grand Staircase.

These large moving staircases run through the centre of the tower. Many portraits are hung on the walls of this tower which freely talk to students walking past.

At the top of this tower are three smaller turrets which make up the Headmaster's tower and serve as the Headmaster's office and residence. Prior to 1995, the entrance was located on the second floor. However, this changed to the Seventh Floor sometime before the 1996-1997 school year. To gain entrance, a password must be given to a stone gargoyle, which will move aside at the correct password to reveal a spiral staircase with moving steps.
