Dumbledore's Office is the office in Hogwarts Castle in which the current headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Albus Dumbledore, works during the school year. It is located in the Headmaster's Tower. Although this is never mentioned, it is entirely likely that the residence of the headmaster is adjacent to the office. The office is reached by means of a circular, moving stone staircase, which is concealed by a gargoyle on the seventh floor. The gargoyle will step aside in response to a password.
