I might not be the world’s biggest Harry Potter fan. But going between two worlds where magic and magical creatures are common makes sense.
I was surprised, in fact, to find less HP mods than I thought I would. Still, I was able to make a pretty good list, and I think you’ll like what we have here.
Do notice that I added a few mods that aren’t directly about Harry Potter. I did this because they’ll make your Harry Potter playthrough much more immersive.
This list will help you make your Skyrim game feel like a weird J.K. Rowling dream.

14. Keeping Warm And Wizard Hats
In the world of Harry Potter, witches and wizards wear robes and hats that make them stand out from regular people. Even though Skyrim lets players wear robes, they may want a few other things to complete their look.
Wizard Hats by Sirwho adds a selection of pointy hats that players can mix and match with their outfits. Players can get them by making them at a forge in the Misc section.
For the full Harry Potter look, players will also need the Keeping Warm – Scarves and Mufflers mod by Netrve and CyborgArmGun.
This mod adds a variety of scarves that can be gotten in different colour combinations. The players can make a total of 108 scarves and 34 mufflers at any Tanning Rack.
13. Deathly Hallows SE By RashadDracula
RashadDracula’s The Deathly Hallows SE is a large mod that adds a lot of content from the Harry Potter series to the world of Skyrim.
The mod adds a new bar to The Midden with seven interactive NPCs, a custom bard follower, an epic boss battle with none other than the Dark Lord Voldemort, and several wands and spells from the Harry Potter series.
Players must be in Whiterun when they install the mod to make sure it works well. Then, they have to go into the Hall of the Dead and find Dumbledore’s tomb, where they will find a note.
They have to read the note and look for any clues or hints that will help them keep going on their quest.
12. Fulcimentum – More Staves & Wands of Skyrim By Tak_oz
Wands are an important part of Harry Potter. They are used to cast spells and do magic in general.
Even though there are staves in Skyrim, most spells are cast without anything but the caster’s hand.
Players will need wands like the ones added by Fulcimentum – More Staves and Wands of Skyrim by tak oz to turn Skyrim into Harry Potter.
As the name suggests, this mod adds a variety of Staves and Wands made of different materials to the game, similar to how there are many types of weapons and armour.
Most of the items are made to fit the theme of Skyrim, but the Wooden and Ebony wands can fit the Harry Potter theme.
11. Obscure’s College Of Winterhold By SomethingObscure
In Harry Potter and the Wizarding World, students can learn about magic at schools like Hogwarts and Ilvermony.
In Skyrim, students can learn about magic at the College of Winterhold. But compared to the Wizard World’s institutions, the College of Winterhold isn’t very good. The college building looks like it’s in bad shape.
With the mod Obscure’s College of Winterhold, modder SomethingObscure offers a way to fix the College. This mod cleans up the College and adds a few new features that fit the high-quality school.
These include, just to name a few, two new towers, updated interiors and exteriors, new signs, and notice boards.
10. Flyable Broomstick
So this one isn’t a Harry Potter mod per se, but what kind of HP world wouldn’t have flying broomsticks?!
I mean, why on Earth isn’t there a mod that adds the Nimbus 2000 to the game? Or something even a little similar, come on!
I had to add this mod precisely because we all need a bit of flight. We need flying brooms, man.
It’s not Harry Potter-y enough if we’re always flying on top of a dragon. I mean, this isn’t Game of Thrones.
9. Immersive College NPCs
Here’s another mod that isn’t precisely from the Harry Potter universe, but it’s also a mod that you can download if you intend to get into Skyrim wizardry.
It adds a bunch of more useful NPCs to the College of Winterhold, which boosts the level of immersion that a Skyrim magic playthrough has.
I hope we can all agree that many College members in the game are rather bland in personality, much like the Starbucks communists of modern Western universities.
This mod changes that for the better. Gone are the days of interacting with an apparently-dead college!
8. Harry Potter Shout
Even though your character needs to be a male to cast this shout, it’s one that I fully recommend everyone to try out.
It allows you to use the Expecto Patronum spell in the game, in the form of a shout, so it isn’t as overpowered as it could be as a spell. But still really fun to use!
I know what you’re thinking and the answer is yes, the shout has the sound effect of Harry screaming the spell. Just like in the movies.
They weren’t going to miss that little detail.
7. Advanced Wizarding Wands (Arcane Accessories)
This mod adds a whole bunch of wands and the ability for you to put new spells into them.
I mean, it’s not as straightforward as it could be. But the mod basically allows you to create “staffs” that aren’t really staffs, but wands instead.
That way you can feel more immersed into the universe, and be able to wave around a tiny wooden stick.
As the name suggests, it focuses on adding advanced wizarding content to the game.
Feel like a true god among men by walking into the halls of the College with your fantastic magical wands.
6. Mermaids (Harry Potter Siren)
The mermaids from Harry Potter have swam all the way from Hogwarts to Skyrim. And now you can find them in the various lakes and oceans that surround the land.
Keep in mind, however, that the mermaids are tough to kill.
They do come with some decent loot, though.
Sirens seem to be very lore-friendly, which is fantastic even for this list of mods that aims to turn the game into something taken out of Harry’s memory.
In any case, this fantastic mod adds some cool new Rowling NPCs to the game. Kill them and see what they drop.
5. Gray’s Hogwarts Spell Pack and Items
Now this mod aims to bring new spells to the game, many of which we’ve all grown to love by watching the movies and reading the books.
You’ll be able to find them in a single chest, so don’t expect anything too fancy to unlock.
Granted it would’ve been cooler if Harry came down and gave them to you, but we can’t have everything eh?
If you don’t want this mod causing you too much trouble, I would suggest you get it without installing the staff mods.
They could make this mod bug out, not always but it’s possible.
Otherwise, happy spellcasting wizard!
4. Harry Potter Wands
Install this mod and get the wands of Dumbledore, Wormtail, Harry, and Tom Riddle all added into the game.
Yes, they’re fully functional.
And yes, they resemble the ones you see in the movies almost to perfection.
They’re all easy to craft, but you cannot find them anywhere. So get to crafting!
3. Advanced Wizarding Wands
Advanced Wizarding Wands adds a bunch of new magical features to the game, which range from traditional spells to new wands that you can equip on your right hand only.
It would be cool if you could use two wands at once, but it would also go against the principles of what wizards stand for. You don’t want to be doing that, do you?
2. More Harry Potter Spells
A list of Harry Potter mods wouldn’t be complete without actual Harry Potter spells (other than the shouts).
As such, this mod adds a total of six new spells to the game, plus the invisibility cloak!
Give it a try and you certainly won’t be disappointed.
1. Harry Potter Spells
Continuing with the trend above, this mod makes sure that there are enough Harry Potter spells for you to cast on your enemies.
More is always better, I hope we can all agree on that.
Master these and become the true chosen one to kill Voldemort (or in this case, maybe use them on Alduin).
