The Principal's Office is a room in Baldi's Basics in Education and Learning. When caught breaking the school rules by the Principal of the Thing, the Player will automatically be teleported to this room and given detention. During detention, the player will be unable to leave the room until the given amount of time has elapsed (if the Player has the Principal's Keys, he can escape it earlier). It's a Bully is also sent here, though he is not actually seen in detention.


This room contains several posters, which showcase the characters and briefly describes each character’s main abilities and functions. The office also holds a Tape Player that can be used to play the Baldi Anti Hearing and Disorienting Tape.


No living in the halls

The Principal of the Thing in the office after sending the player here for detention.

Detention can last from 15 to 99 seconds. The time increases by 15 seconds each time the player is caught until the time reaches 60 seconds, from which any further detentions will last for 99 seconds.

The player will be teleported here by the Principal of the Thing if caught:

  • Drinking a BSoda (However, in the game it is used to push someone away).
  • Running in the Halls.
  • Escaping detention (using Principal's Keys).
  • Entering or exiting Faculty Rooms.
  • Bullying (if the Principal Of The Thing sees It's a Bully bullying the player, soon to have where if the player has cut Playtime's rope, or has cut 1st Prize's wires).



  • When the Principal of the Thing sends the player to this room, it counts as opening a door, so Baldi will instantly know where the player is.
  • In the earliest version, there were large globes instead of tables in the room.
  • If the player goes to the corner where the picture of 1st Prize and the window meets, Baldi will not be able to reach the player, as his hitbox is too wide to fit into the small space where the player is located. However, at this point, the player will have no choice but to walk into Baldi, ending the game unless the player has BSoda (to, of course, spray it on him and try to escape).
  • Cloudy Copter, Filename2, and PlaceFace don’t have descriptions in the Principal's Office.
  • There are few actions considered as detention-worthy went completely unused:
