Where is the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Legacy? How to reach secret areas
The details you require.
With the game being spread over a large map, it’s easy to get lost in Hogwarts Legacy. There are a few different rooms and secret locations that you can easily miss. And you may well require the Room of Requirement location in order to find secret locations.
The Room of Requirement is an important location and one you will return to time and time again during your stay in Hogwarts. This is where you’ll spend time conjuring magical beasts to care for, brewing potions, and tending to your plants.
Luckily, you won’t be able to miss out on the Room of Requirement as it is part of the main story.
You’re doing nothing wrong if you haven’t come across this magical and mysterious room yet, but it is worth knowing that no amount of searching will find it for you. It can only be accessed after completing a certain mission.
Read on to find out how to find the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Legacy and how to get back to discovering secret rooms and areas.
How to unlock the Hogwarts Legacy Room of Requirement
You will find the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Legacy several hours into the main story when Professor Weasley will introduce you to the room and show you its location during the Tomes and Tribulations mission.
Completing this quest will unlock the 'The Room of Requirement' main mission. This is where Professor Weasley will show you its location.
These missions come fairly early in the list of Hogwarts Legacy main missions, so keep playing and you'll eventually reach it.

How to find the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Legacy
You can find the Room of Requirement on a wall in the Astronomy Wing of Hogwarts, which can be accessed by climbing the stairs in the Defence Against the Dark Arts tower. You'll know you're in the right place when you enter a hallway with a tapestry on one side (with the Room of Requirement entrance located on the opposite wall).
Perhaps an easier way is to open the map screen and click on the sun icon near the top of the screen hovering over Hogwarts itself.
Clicking on that icon will bring up the Secret Rooms section on your list of Floo Flames locations. Your secret rooms include the Room of Requirement and the Map Chamber. Simply select the Room of Requirement to fast travel directly inside the room itself. You can head back there at any time without trawling the corridors of the magical school, provided you have completed the initial missions.
Now get back inside the Room of Requirement if you want to brew some potions and tend to some plants. And later on, you'll be able to befriend some of the many Hogwarts Legacy beasts and upgrade your gear there too!
