How To Join The College of Winterhold
- Just walk to the College of Winterhold — located, naturally, in Winterhold. You’ll need to successfully cast a spell before the gates will open.
- If you don’t have any spells, talk to the Guardian of the Bridge, Faralda. They’ll sell magic for 30 gold.
- If your magicka is too low to cast the spell, try consuming Fortify Magicka Potions. Or you can tell Faralda that you are a Dragonborn. She’ll request to see a Dragon Shout, which you will obtain by completing some of the main quest.
- Find the Grand Teacher Tolfdir, he’ll offer the “First Lessons” quest.
- Complete his quest, and you’re in the college.
