Headmaster Upper Study in Hogwarts Legacy

As you explore the world of Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll get to fight new enemies, meet new characters and discover bits of lore to appreciate. Sometimes it’s as easy as walking into a classroom to find information, while other times, you have to go through a series of complex tasks. Going into the Headmaster’s Upper Study is one example of a room that may seem easy to enter but is is pretty challenging in reality! If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover how to get to the Headmaster’s Upper Study for the Room with a View achievement in Hogwarts Legacy.

How to Get to the Headmaster’s Upper Study in Hogwarts Legacy

Before you go for the Room with a View achievement by searching for this place, make sure you have access to broom flight and Alohomora level three. The easiest method of getting to this room is by flying to it, but without upgrading Alohomora, you won’t be able to enter!

The first part of finding the Headmaster’s Upper Study is heading to Hogwarts and flying into the sky! Start anywhere outside – let’s say the Flying Class Lawn Floo Flame – and hop onto your broom! Fly as high as you can and head toward the tallest tower. You’ll see a balcony jutting out of the tower, with steps just behind it. Descend onto these stairs and climb them to access the Headmaster’s Upper Study entrance.

The second part of this process is where things can get tricky if you’re unprepared.

Unlocking the Room With a View Achievement

Remember that tidbit about needing Alohomora level three? Here is where it’s helpful! As you approach the locked door at the top of the stairs, use Alohomora and complete the minigame to enter the study. You’ll unlock the achievement once you climb the stairs and enter the main room!

Reaching the Headmaster’s Upper Study the Intended Way

While the method above is the fastest and easier way to get to this location, there is an intended way to make this trek. However, you’ll have to complete the “The Polyjuice Plot” quest before you can do this.

Starting from the Trophy Room Floo Flame, enter the northeast room next to the flame and turn right once you enter the corridor. Enter the gate and climb the stairs before running through the hallway. You’ll encounter more stairs, including a winding staircase leading to a wooden door. Enter the door, turn left and head up the spiral staircase.

Following the path, you’ll enter a large room with multiple locked doors. Open the light-colored one to access the balcony mentioned early in this post, and take the same steps as before to unlock the Upper Study door!

Hogwarts Legacy is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch through the official website.
