Cost to Attend Hogwarts

It would cost around $43,000 a year to attend Hogwarts! Although I’m pretty sure you’ll have to get that converted into pounds, and then into galleons! In honor the release of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, some Lehigh University Students did a study and calculated the various costs of attending Hogwarts. Using Harry’s acceptance letter and Amazon.co.uk, they concluded:
  • Three sets of plain robes= $484
  • One plain pointed hat= $32
  • One pair of protective gloves (dragon hide or similar)= $122 (assuming that GORE-TEX waterproofing technology gloves qualify as “similar”)
  • 1 Winter Cloak=$40
  • 1 Wand=$161 (I don’t even know how they found this on Amazon)
  • 1 Cauldron (pewter, standard size)= $37
  • 1 Set Glass or Crystal Phials=$12
  • 1 Telescope= $174
  • 1 Set Brass Scales=$12
  • 7 Textbooks=$519
  • 1 year tuition= $41,633 (the average price for a prestigious boarding school in England)

This totals to around $43,000.
