    Coven Commons and Dorms

    Post  Deanna Arrakis on Fri May 13, 2011 2:06 pm

    Welcome to the Coven of the Stag! This will be your new home while at SWI. Please take your time getting familiar with your surroundings, and I hope you will enjoy your stay.

    The Ground Floor:

    Our main common area is a warm and inviting space for all students to gather. It is designed for relaxation and contemplation. Coven colors of deep and rich purples are prevalent throughout.

    As with the other coven towers, this is the point of access to the rest of the tower and dorms. Friends of our coven-mates will be allowed entry solely to this main common area. All students who are not of Coven Åsgårdsreia will not be allowed entry to the rest of the tower (unless escorted by the Coven Mistress).

    Second Floor Commons:

    On the second floor, individual commons, as well as meeting rooms for those who require privacy, are located. The boys and girls lofted commons overlook the main commons. In order to prevent "accidental" falls, the entire outlying space has been charmed with magical netting.

    Third Floor Dorms--1st and 2nd Years; 5th Year Prefect's Rooms:

    The tower's dormitories begin on the third floor. All 1st and 2nd Years are housed on this floor. The stair leading up is charmed so all students 3rd year and above can pass.

    Three rooms on each side house 13 students total, with common halls linking them together. All of the doors—as well as the Prefect's rooms and the baths, are charmed. Members of the opposite sex will be unable to enter, or even look, inside. The only ones to whom this does not apply are members of staff and the Coven Leader.

    The central baths may look petite; however, they are far larger within their enclosures. There are plenty of facilities for everyone. Space is not a problem. Individual showers are available and shower cabinets are assigned for each student for the duration of their stay on the third floor.

    The 5th Year Coven Prefects each have a room located at the entrance to the dorms. 7th Year prefects occupy the Prefect's Rooms on the 5th Floor.

    Fourth and Fifth Floor Dorms--3rd and 4th Years (Fourth Floor); 5th and 6th Years (Fifth Floor); 6th Year (Fourth Floor) and 7th Year (Fifth Floor) Prefect's Rooms:

    The Fourth and Fifth Floors are nearly identical. As students get older, more freedom with personal decoration is allowed. The same number of beds are found here as on the Third Floor, but there is slightly more space. This extra room can be used for 1st and 2nd Year overflow.

    The stair leading up is charmed so students that are not upperclassmen cannot advance to the higher floors.

    The higher students advance up the tower, the more separate and removed from the activity of the Commons Floors they are. The upper floors have a more relaxed atmosphere to soothe students preparing for O.W.L.s.

    Students who reach the Fifth Floor, (and 5th Year), will be allowed "room service" delivered by the kitchen elves.

    Sixth Floor Dorms--7st Years:

    The graduating class of the Institute commands the Sixth Floor. Seventh years are preparing for life beyond the Institute and are allowed luxuries that their coven mates are not.

    Access to the Sixth Floor dorm, and to the attic above, is severely controlled; the door is enchanted and will only allow access to allowed coven members. Visitors are allowed, but must be permitted by the Coven Head before access will be approved.

    Accommodations on the Sixth Floor are designed to have a smaller number of people per room; they do not share bathrooms with other coven members; prefect rooms are not found on this floor—though all prefects are allowed access to this floor.

    7th Years enjoy the luxury of their own private commons area, and while 7th Years are often seen in the main Coven Commons, during tests--and especially when they are taking their N.E.W.T.s, the 7th Years make good use of the quiet and privacy of the Sixth Floor, venturing out only to eat, take class, and participate in extracurricular activity.

    The Sixth Floor has one other coveted item that the rest of the tower does not. Located here is the only direct access to the Attic; a popular area with the Institutes' graduating class…

    Seventh Floor--Attic:

    The Attic is a special place within the tower reserved for those students who show extreme dedication toward their school. Seventh years have automatically earned that place and are the only ones allowed unrestricted access to the Attic.

    Students from third year onward may request use of the Attic space. Along with their request, they must provide the time they will need a room and how long it will be needed. Requests must be approved by the Coven Head and will depend on past performance at the Institute.

    Approvals for anyone who is not 7th Year will mean that those students need to apparate to the Attic, and they will be unable to access the 6th Floor from the Attic (enchantments are in place).

    Other than the baths and the central commons, the rooms are left "unseen". That is because the rooms can be configured for any accommodations, including those of a personal nature. It has happened in the past, that certain seventh years have been granted “couples status" and were allowed to live as such in the Attic. However, this only happens on very rare occasions, and with the permission of a great many people.

    Tower Attic’s are used for a great many things, and the Institute recognizes that as long at students act in a responsible fashion, it will not be necessary to monitor activities there.
