The password changes regularly and is sometimes reflective of current holidays or circumstances. The common room is in a tall tower, and is very large. It has two staircases that lead to the girls' and boys' dormitories. It also has a fireplace and comfy chairs and many gryffindors use it as a place to relax or study.
