The Gatehouse was one of the main entrances to Hogwarts. It connected the Stone Circle to the Wooden Bridge, and had a torch on the front wall.[1]

Harry Potter and Hermione Granger hid here while using the Time-Turner and watched themselves going to Hagrid's Hut.[1] A year later, Harry, Ron and Hermione talked about the second task of the Triwizard Tournament there.[2] In 1996, Harry and Hermione met other Dumbledore's Army members here, shortly before the Battle of the Department of Mysteries.[3] Months later, Harry Potter and Katie Bell briefly encountered Gregory Goyle there on their way to the Quidditch Gate before the Gryffindor Quidditch team trials.[4]
