Rowling says she visualises Hogwarts, in its entirety, to be: Like the Weasleys' houseit isn't a building that Muggles could build, because it is supported by magic.
In the novels, Hogwarts is somewhere in Scotland   the film Prisoner of Azkaban says that Dufftown is near. The school is depicted as having numerous charms and spells on and around it that make it impossible for a Muggle to locate it.
Muggles cannot see the school; rather, they see only ruins and several warnings of danger. There is also an owlery, which houses all the owls owned by the school and those owned by students.
Some rooms in the school tend to "move around", and so do the stairs in the grand staircase.
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of FireHermione indicates that due to the high levels of magic, "substitutes for magic that Muggles use" such as computers, radar and electricity "go haywire" around Hogwarts. Radios however, make an exception.
Rowling explains this by saying that the radios are not powered by electricity but by magic. Hogwarts is on the shore of a lake, sometimes called the Black Lake. In that lake are merpeopleGrindylowsand a giant squid. The giant squid does not attack humans and sometimes acts as a lifeguard when students are in the lake.
Hogwarts is a coeducationalsecondary boarding schooltaking children from ages eleven to eighteen. Rowling initially said there are about one thousand students at Hogwarts. She further explained that this had resulted from her creating only 40 characters for Harry's year.
Acceptance or refusal of a place at Hogwarts must be posted by 31 July. The letter also contains a list of supplies like spell books, uniform, and other things that the student will need. The prospective student is expected to buy all the necessary materials, normally from shops in Diagon Alleya concealed street near Charing Cross Road in London that can be found behind the wizarding pub, The Leaky Cauldron.
Students who cannot afford their supplies can receive financial aid from the school, as happened with the young orphan Tom Riddle. Letters to Muggle-born witches and wizards, who may not be aware of their powers and are unfamiliar with the concealed wizarding world, are delivered in person by a member of Hogwarts staff, who then explains to the parents or guardians about magical society, and reassures them regarding this news.
Each student is allowed to bring an owl OR a cat OR a toad. Along with the acceptance letter, first-year students are sent a list of required equipment which includes a wand, subject books, a standard size 2 pewter cauldron, a set of brass scales, a set of glass or crystal phials, a kit of basic potion ingredients for Potionsand a telescope for Astronomy.
