The potions classroom is located at the bottom of the Octagon Tower, and is across from a hall leading to the Stone Bridge. The classroom is colder than the main castle, with students being able to see their own breath during the winter.
It is large enough to allow at least twenty students to work and its walls are lined with pickled animals in glass jars. In one corner of the room stands a basin into which ice-cold water pours from a gargoyle's mouth, while in another is a student supply cupboard. There is also a blackboard on which the Potions Master can write the class's instructions.

Maria stands at the front of the classroom and waves her wand, the desks straightning themselves up, and chairs pushed back in. She nods to herself and makes her way around to her desk and sits in it, taking out her lesson plan.
"As much as I do enjoy a nice dark dungeon, I was wondering if I could possibly take extra potions classes with you. I managed to get a O in Potions in my OWLS, and enjoy potions quite a lot. I'd understand if you're a bit busy, but I'd appreciate it if I could."
She shrugged again. "Well, that depends on if I can find out the ministers favourite drink, but I digress, I want to learn it because we don't get taught them all that much. I....promise to not use them on anyone."

’Trust me, you are not the only one who wants to poison the minister. I had an entire plan that involved my liquid-fear potion and a poison that slowly ate him from the inside out.’ Maria snorts, and takes a sip of the water from her mug. ’If It were not for my high moral standards he would be six feet under right now.’ She raised her mug at Alisa, ’Please do not tell anyone about my homicidal plans. I have enough on my plate as it is. But, as long as you aren’t going to kill anyone–‘ she paused, then signed in a mumbled manner, –at least while you are a student... then fine.’
"You're probably the only teacher here with the balls to say that...well, maybe aside from Deonte. " She smirked. "I'll try not to kill anyone but you know, can't make a oath to. Then again, not all poisons kill, so I'm set either way."
