The Viaduct Courtyard[1] (also known as the Entrance Courtyard) is a quadrangle in Hogwarts Castle. A covered stone cloister with an open colonnade runs around it, and two checkpoint towers flank its entryway via the Viaduct. There is a stone walkway leading from this courtyard into The Quad, and into the Viaduct Entrance. The courtyard is partially paved, in a cross pattern.[2]

A popular hang-out spot for students of all Houses, this courtyard is where some students spend their spare time playing Gobstones.[3]
