The Viaduct Courtyard (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. The courtyard is partially paved, in a cross pattern. A popular hang-out spot for students of all Houses, this courtyard is where some students spend their spare time playing Gobstones.

On September 1st 1998, Hogwarts students marched through this Courtyard under the supervision of Death Eaters Alecto and Amycus Carrow and Headmaster Severus Snape, as they were led into the Castle. Having been destroyed during the Hogwarts Battle, the entire courtyard had to be spelled back to normal.

Although Marino could probably never point out why, this courtyard was among his favorite places in Hogwarts. Somehow, seeing the place so full of students sometimes and so empty at others made it seem like a contrasting scenery in Marino's mind, very much like his emotions. This early in the morning, it wasn't very surprising that it was empty, and that was exactly why Marino had come here in the first place. Sometimes even his few roommates could prove to be too much whenever he just wants some time to think. Though the sky was mostly covered in clouds, a few glimpses of blue sky were visible in between clouds. He stood in the middle of the courtyard and simply looked around, registering the stone colonnades and the large castle overhead. Suddenly, however, he heard a noise behind him, so he turned around, squinting his eyes to try and find the source of the disturbance.
