The building

I've just watched the scene in Chamber of Secrets where the image of the "building" used in this article is from, and it is clear it is definitely not in the same place as the classroom. The Transfiguration Classroom is located on the east side of the Transfiguration Courtyard (The Grand Staircase Tower being to the south); but the image shows a building to the south of thre courtyard which is replaced by the Dark Tower from Prisoner of Azkaban onwards.

OK, I changed it back. Thanks, originally I had noticed their shape and location adjacent to the courtyard and I had deducted that it was the classroom. Sorry, El Profeta Vespertino 16:28, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

In Chapter 6 of Chamber of Secrets, Harry, Ron and Hermione leave the Transfiguration classroom and then go "down" to lunch. There is also this from later in the book;

Shivering, Harry walked past classrooms where lessons were taking place, catching snatches of what was happening within. Professor McGonagall was shouting at someone who, by the sound of it, had turned his friend into a badger. Resisting the urge to take a look, Harry walked on by, thinking that Justin might be using his free time to catch up on some work, and deciding to check the library first.

So Harry is on his way to the library and passes McGonagall's classroom. This makes it unlikely that the classroom is on the ground-floor. When Peeves shouts about Sir Nicholas and Justin on the second-floor (around the corner from the Gargoyle Corridor), it takes McGonagall and her class only a few minutes to get there. They then walk around the corridor and are outside of the headmaster's office.
Also, in Chapter 31 of Goblet of Fire, Ron looks out of the Transfiguration classroom's window and is described as "staring down onto the grounds", and "Malfoy, Crabbe, and Goyle were standing in the shadow of a tree below."
And in Half-Blood Prince, Hermione leaves Transfiguration, crying, and Harry finds her "as she emerged from a girls’ bathroom on the floor below. -- Saxon 12:32, September 16, 2015 (UTC)
