All House Differences in Hogwarts Legacy

While you can pick any of the four houses in Hogwarts Legacy, Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Hufflepuff, there are some differences between each one. However, these are all minor differences, and your story and experience will be largely the same regardless of which house you select. Here are all the differences between each house in Hogwarts Legacy.

  • Colors
    • Each house has an identifying color: Gryffindor/Red, Slytherin/Green, Ravenclaw/Blue, and Hufflepuff/Yellow. This is mostly noticed in your robe colors, and those playing on PS5 can take advantage of the DualSense to have their controller light up, depending on the house they pick.
  • Common Room
    • You are assigned to the common room of your house. Each has a different aesthetic that reflects that house. There are minor differences here, some of which are easter eggs, such as the Basilisk. You can also collect all Daedalian Keys to unlock the House Chest within your common room. This rewards you with a unique robe representing your house.

  • NPCs/Companions
    • Depending on what house you select, you will receive slight modifications in NPC dialogue. This is small but adds to the charm of the world. More noticeable is the companion that will be from your house. There is Natsai Onai for Gryffindor, Sebastion Sallow for Slytherin, Amit Thakkar for Ravenclaw, and Poppy Sweeting for Hufflepuff.
  • Quest
    • While there are no house-specific quests in Hogwarts Legacy, there is one quest that is altered depending on which house you select. It is largely the same quest but will differ depending on your house. It comes early on in the game, allowing you to replay it as a different house easily.
