Where to find the Key of Admittance in Hogwarts Legacy

Before you can hope to get your hands on the Key of Admittance, you will first need to progress through the game to the point where you unlock the Alohomora spell. After this, you will need to collect enough of the Demiguise Moons to have Gladwin Moon upgrade your Alohomora spell to level three. Once this is complete, make your way outside of the castle. Where you go outside doesn’t matter as long as you can use your broom.

Get on your broom and fly up to the tallest tower around Hogwarts. Go around the tower until you see a small platform that you can land on like in the image above. Land here, and walk up the stairs to find a door with a level three lock. Open the door and go inside to find yourself in the Headmaster’s Study. The Key of Admittance is on the desk in the room.
