How to get to the Slytherin Dungeons in Hogwarts Legacy

From the Grand Staircase Floo Flame nearby the Great Hall, turn around and go down the main central staircase. It will lead to a large set of double doors and the Lower Grand Staircase Floo Flame. Turn to your right to find the Slytherin Dungeons.

If you are a Slytherin student and walk forward to the large blank wall in front of you, a snake will reveal the door to your common room. If you turn to your right again and walk down the corridor you can explore even further in the Dungeons, to find places like the bathroom sink that leads to the Chamber of Secrets.

If you have Alohomora levels one and two unlocked, you can find the Deathday Party Room behind a locked gate, or the Detention Room behind a locked door further down the hall. Both of these locations contain Revelio Field Guide pages that you may want to collect.
