Hogwarts Legacy Key of Admittance Quest Guide

Before you can even start this quest in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll first need access to Alohomora level 3. The unlocking spell can be upgraded by talking to Gladwin Moon as you collect Demiguise Statues for him. If you’re having trouble with that quest, we have a full guide detailing the locations of every Demiguise Statue in the game.

In addition to that, you’ll also need access to a broom, which you should have already if you’ve unlocked Alohomora.

Where to Find the Key of Admittance

The Key of Admittance itself can be located in the Headmaster’s Upper Study, which is a secret room you won’t find on the Hogwarts Legacy map. To get here, head over to the Grand Staircase, then walk out into the courtyard.

Hop onto your broom and fly directly above to the highest tower of Hogwarts, and look for a small circular space that you can land on.

You’ll see a door that you can interact with, and you’ll only be able to open it with Alohomora level 3. Once inside, grab the Key of Admittance lying on the desk.
