The Courtyard as it appears in the Resident Evil remake.

The courtyard is an area located behind the Spencer Mansion in Resident Evil and its remake. The courtyard connects the mansion to the Dormitory/Residence and contains the secret entrance to the caverns, which leads to Umbrella's Arklay Laboratory in the original game and back to the cabin in the remake.


The courtyard was expanded significantly in the Resident Evil remake, gaining new areas, including Lisa Trevor's cabin, several winding forest paths, and a cemetery.
