For curious students of Hogwarts, the headmaster’s office is certainly an intriguing part of the castle. It’s guarded by a password-sensitive gargoyle and it’s home to the Sorting Hat. In Hogwarts Legacy, it also provides access to the highest point of the castle and is required for the “Room with a View” Achievement.
Requirements to Access Headmaster’s Office
Players cannot enter the office until they start The Polyjuice PlotMain Quest. During the quest you will enter the office and it is accessible at anytime afterwards. Attempting to enter before that will be blocked by the gargoyle.
How to Reach the Headmaster’s Office
Getting to the headmaster’s office without quest markers from The Polyjuice Plot can be tricky, since it doesn’t have a Floo Flame or any marking on the map. First, you’ll want to travel to the Trophy Room Floo Flame. From there, proceed north through the hallway and head up the stairs at the end of it.
Continue through the winding hallway and go up the next flight of stairs. At the top, go west and head up the stairs with green lanterns floating in the middle.
Go through the door at the top of the stairs and turn left to go up the final staircase. If you haven’t completed The Polyjuice Plot yet, then you will see the gargoyle that protects the office.
