In the Harry Potter universe, Hogwarts is a massive school, and that holds true in Hogwarts Legacy. Navigating the many corridors, courtyards, towers, and spiraling staircases can leave inquisitive players wondering: how do I find my house common room? Others may be looking for the common rooms of other houses. Below we have all the common room locations for Hogwarts Legacy.
After the Sorting Ceremony cut scenes ends and you have chosen a house, Professor Weasley will lead you to the entrance area for your house. She will impart the password instructions to your character, who will then carry them out, opening the common room door for the first time in the game. Once you enter this initial time, you will enter automatically each time you visit — or be able to simply fast travel to the common room via a Floo Flame.
All Common Room Locations in Hogwarts Legacy
Gryffindor Common Room Location
A warm and inviting space for students of Gryffindor awaits players behind the portrait of the Fat Lady at the end of the South Wing in the Faculty Tower. Once unlocked the portrait will swing open and players can head inside. This is the easiest of the common rooms to locate.
Slytherin Common Room Location
The dungeon common room is one of the harder ones to locate as it is hidden behind a seemingly plain wall in Hogwarts. Head down to the dungeons under the lower Grand Staircase until you reach a room that is seemingly empty. Slytherin students will see a snake statue that will slither up the wall when the password is first given, revealing the common room passage behind it.
Ravenclaw Common Room Location
The star-studded Ravenclaw common room is aptly placed at the top of Ravenclaw Tower. One of the three tallest towers in Hogwarts, you will need to climb the Grand Staircase and head west until you find a blue colored corridor and staircase. At the top of this staircase is a door with a bronze raven knocker. Give the knocking password and the entrance will appear for Ravenclaw students.
Hufflepuff Common Room Location
A baked-goods-filled common room for Hufflepuffs is hidden in the Hogwarts basement. Specifically, the Hufflepuff basement underneath the Great Hall. The correct area has the cookbook of Helga Hufflepuff on the display in the stairwell, wine casks lined against the wall, and a giant cask on the left side. Knocking the password will reveal the entrance in the giant cask.
Can You Visit the Other Common Rooms?
So can you visit all of the Hogwarts Legacy common rooms? Unfortunately, unlike in the books, there is no way to learn the secret knock or password for each house common room of which you are not a part, nor is there a Polyjuice Potion to drink for enter another house’s common room.
If you want to see each common room yourself, you would have to make four separate saved games, one for each house. You can, at least, access the spaces where the doors are hidden.
While the field guide helps you not get lost on quests, if you want to scope out all the common room locations in Hogwarts Legacy, these directions are the best way to go. If you found this guide helpful, take a look at our other guides on the game.
