Dragonsreach Jarl's Quarters is a sublocation in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Housed in Dragonsreach, these living quarters are designated for the Jarl of the Whiterun Hold, Balgruuf the Greater. As Thane of Whiterun, the Dragonborn is welcome to take most of the items found here. Once Mirmulnir is slain, one of the beds will be usable. If the Dragonborn leaves items here, they will not disappear when they leave, which is also true for most of Dragonsreach.

  •  PC   If you run into the right column of the door frame leading from Jarl Balgruuf's personal quarters to Whiterun, you will not be blocked and thus you will begin fall out of the cell. However, instead of falling downward forever, you will appear next to the guard outside of Hrongar's room.
