Why do you care?
The Great Hall is located on the main, or 1st, floor of the castle. This is where everyone congregates for meals, various gatherings, meetings and ceremonies. If there is a party of any sort, it will be held here. Likewise, should an emergency rise, this is where everyone will meet up.

The Astronomy Tower is located in the far northwestern corner and can be reached via the 4th floor. Both Astronomy and Divination hold classes in the tower. It is also used to conduct research and experiments.

The Dungeons are located in the deepest part of the castle in the underground. They are in the far southeastern corner and can be reached via the 1st floor. They are partially under the water that makes up the cove.

The Library is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors just above the Great Hall, taking up the central portion of the castle.

The Kitchens are located on the 1st floor of the castle, but there is also an enchanted area that runs below and underground that isn't visible to most unless you know how to 'unlock' the charm (something that can only be done once inside the kitchens themselves).

The Hospital Wing is located on the western side of the castle on the 3rd floor.

The Greenhouses are located on the south side of the castle and can be entered to either from outside the castle or from the 1st floor.

Dormitories exist for each house (Ravenclaw, Slytherin, Gryffindor and Hufflepuff). They comprise of one Common Room and Dorms (bedrooms and bathrooms). Girls are separate from boys, each side connected by a divided staircase.

Girls' Public Bathrooms are located on the north and south side of every floor of the castle.

Boys' Public Bathrooms are located on the north and south side of every floor of the castle.

Staircases are located between every floor along the central part of the castle itself. There is another set that leads to the Astronomy Tower and still another that leads to the Dungeons.

Rooms Of Requirement are rooms that present themselves to students who exhibit great need. There is one on the 2nd floor and another on the 3rd floor.

Gryffindor House is located on the 3rd floor on the western side of the castle near the Hospital Wing. There is a shared Common Room and the Boys' and Girls' Dorms are connected via a divided staircase. To enter, one must know the password. All House dorms are charmed and can accommodate several four-poster beds and wardrobes. Each student gets one.

Ravenclaw House is located on the 4th floor on the northwestern side of the castle near the Astronomy Tower. There is a shared Common Room and the Boys' and Girls' Dorms are connected via a divided staircase. To enter, one must know the password. All House dorms are charmed and can accommodate several four-poster beds and wardrobes. Each student gets one.

Slytherin House is located underground in the southeastern corner of the castle near the Dungeons. There is a shared Common Room and the Boys' and Girls' Dorms are connected via a divided staircase. To enter, one must know the password. All House dorms are charmed and can accommodate several four-poster beds and wardrobes. Each student gets one.

Hufflepuff House is located on the 1st floor on the eastern side of the castle near the Kitchens. There is a shared Common Room and the Boys' and Girls' Dorms are connected via a divided staircase. To enter, one must know the password. All House dorms are charmed and can accommodate several four-poster beds and wardrobes. Each student gets one.

School/Castle Grounds are the areas located just outside the castle itself.

Quidditch Pitch is the pitch used for quidditch matches and quidditch practice as well as friendly (or not so friendly) games.

Cliffside Path is located just east of the castle and is a winding path that leads down toward a cove.

The Cove is an area that a lot of the students who attend the university like to go to relax and enjoy themselves.

The Hidden Cove, located a bit north of the Cove itself, is a semi-secret cove that is considered 'hidden' only because its tucked away inside a small cave keeping it partially hidden from the public eye and anyone who is new to the area. It can be difficult to get to at times since there are times when the tide can be high thus filling the area with water. The best times to enter it are either very late at night or very early in the morning.

The Haunted Forest is located west of the castle and is considered very dangerous. A barrier charm has been put into place to protect the castle and keep out the nasties, but if someone crosses it and enters the forest, they are on their own. Every year, students are warned not to venture into the forest without a guide, especially during nighttime hours, even if they are required to go there for ingredients for a class. The reason for this is due to the various creatures residing within, the worst being 'The Lost Souls', a type of ghost that devour the souls of the living until they are fully extinguished. Once the body is devoid of their soul, 'the lost soul' occupies it for a time, but the time is typically short usually only lasting a few days. Once they leave, they are hungrier than they were before their previous soul-devouring, making them more dangerous. Thus each feeding causes them to crave more and more and yearn to occupy a host body more and more.

Hogsdale is a bustling 'college town' located to the east and slightly south of Hogwarts University. The place is brimming with life and color and fun things to do. It's filled with restaurants of all sorts, shops of every kind, bars, night clubs, dance clubs… It also has a grand hotel along with a quaint bed and breakfast for those who plan to visit those attending the school and those who just wish to get away from the castle for a weekend. It has a train station, a marina, a floo system and even a special station just for those who like to apparate. In the center of town is a carriage service that brings people to and from the castle if they prefer not to walk or have a lot of luggage to carry along with a great wizarding bank.

Hoggington Isle is a small island located east of Hogsdale. It can be reached via boat (ferries travel back and forth between the island and Hogsdale via the marina daily) or broom. The island has a small floo system and marina, its own bed and breakfast and wizarding bank along with a few shops and restaurants. It's much quieter and smaller than the bustling Hogsdale.

The Training Room is located on the western side of the 2nd floor of the castle. It is a place where students, faculty and staff alike can go to train and exercise. It is equipped with the latest and greatest from both the magical and Muggle worlds in the ways of physical, and even mental, training. It is in here that people can also practice wizard dueling.

The Were Awareness Foundation (WAF) is a research foundation founded by Remus Theodore Lupin that promotes awareness about lycanthropy as well as conducts research in hopes to find a cure for lycanthropy as well. The labs are located near the dungeons in castle of Hogwarts University.
