The highest floor of any house corresponds to intellect and thoughts. Attics are often used for storage. In this way, they represent memories, information, and knowledge that accumulate over the course of our lives. The state of the attic in your dream will illuminate your current relationship with your thoughts and memories. Exploring any part of a house symbolizes an exploration of yourself. An attic indicates that your journey is taking you back to thoughts based on your past.

Houses symbolize your personality, and attics symbolize your subconscious mind. What’s hidden up there? 

Interesting attics filled with fascinating objects you never knew you had, secret passages, hidden doors, chests full of treasure, cool vintage clothes, or irresistible antiques mean you’ve got great untapped potential in that brain of yours. Something – hidden talents, unrealized energy, an illuminating idea – waits for you to discover it. Bring it out of the attic and make it part of your waking life. 
Scary, dark, musty, run-down, or cobwebby attics mean there are parts of your mind you’d rather not visit right now. That’s fine. Save it for another day, when the attic might look more inviting. 
Locked attics or pitch-black attics mean your subconscious mind is hiding something from you. 
Dreaming you live in your major professor’s attic means you are ready to graduate.
