Where is the Room of Requirement in 'Hogwarts Legacy'?

Before you can set foot in the Room of Requirement, you’ll first need to complete a specific quest in the main storyline. Unsurprisingly, it’s titled The Room of Requirement. The quest isn’t available right at the start of Hogwarts Legacy, and you’ll need to complete more than a dozen other missions before it’s added to your list – so don't expect to see it until you're several hours deep into the game.

As a main quest, it’s impossible to miss “The Room of Requirement.” Just keep carrying on with your adventures, and you’ll eventually unlock it. A few important characters and locations are involved in the quest (such as the Astronomy Tower, Deek, and Professor Weasley), but just follow your list of tasks to quickly complete the mission.

With the quest completed, you can find the Room of Requirement by opening your map and selecting the Secret Rooms icon at the top of the screen. Click on this, and you’ll have the option to enter the Room of Requirement.
