* A ''WesternAnimation/PepperAnn'' comic in ''DisneyAdventures'' uses this trope as the basis for its plot. When she is allowed to actually visit the lounge, [[RealityEnsues her expectations on what it contains were crushed]]. [[spoiler:After she leaves, the teachers reveal [[RealAfterAll a secret luxurious room of the lounge]].]]

* A ''{{Daria}}'' tie-in book depicts the teacher's lounge, complete with broken-down furniture, ugly colors and evidence of fighting between the staff. Daria opines: ''"Students aren't allowed in here. They might find out how depressing it is to be an adult."''

* In ''Film/TheFaculty'', Casey and Delilah break into the teachers' lounge in order to get a story for the {{school newspaper|Newshound}}. This isn't the first time they'd done this; Delilah had gone in there before to discover that one of the teachers was drinking on the job. They wind up finding the corpse of Mrs. Brummel in the closet, as well as Coach Willis and Mrs. Olson infecting the school nurse with the [[PuppeteerParasite alien parasite]].


In schools, the teacher's lounge is essentially a break room: A place for the faculty to enjoy time away from their duties as teachers of society's next generation. But from the students' perspective, the only thing they know about the MysteriousTeachersLounge is ... well, that they ''don't'' know what exactly lies beyond that locked door.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'': one episode involves this, and the gang expects it to be some sort of magical place, but is subverted when they actually see just being a normal room. DoubleSubverted when they leave it, and Principal Prickly presses a few buttons on the vending machine, revealing a hidden room with a spa.

* The Uncommon Room at Unseen University in ''{{Discworld}}'' really is one. There are comfy chairs and lots of food is always brought in. Interestingly, we're seeing it from the faculty perspective, as students at UU are largely ignored (by ''their professors'' as well as the narrative, in fact.)

* In ''Literature/{{Speak}}'', Melinda lampshades this when she and Heather are going to spruce up the teacher's lounge, wondering if there's a secret file cabinet full of student records, beds for teachers wanting a nap, or boxes of tissues for those who get nervous breakdowns. Turns out it's just a sparsely decorated and very plain room with a few chairs and a table.
