Harry Potter Wizards Unite Houses - Can You Change Your House in Wizards Unite?

Here's our guide to all the Wizards Unite houses, where we also answer if you can change your house in Wizards Unite whenever you want.

As you might expect, the four Hogwarts houses of Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin all feature in Harry Potter Wizards Unite. In this guide on how to pick a house in Wizards Unite, we'll be going over all the details you need to know when picking a house, and how to change your house in Wizards Unite, whenever you want.

Harry Potter Wizards Unite Houses

So firstly, once you've downloaded Harry Potter Wizards Unite on either an iOS or Android device, you'll need to undertake a tutorial. This involves freeing none other than Hagrid from a spider's web, by tracing a spell on your screen.

After this tutorial, you're free to sign up to a house. Tap on the icon of the wizard near the bottom left corner of your screen, and you'll be taken to your ID screen. Now tap on the 'Select House' screen, and you'll have the option to select and pledge your allegiance to any of the four houses. We've summarised them just below, in the words of Wizards Unite.

  • Hufflepuff - Values hard work, loyalty, and fair play.
  • Gryffindor - Values bravery, daring, and chivalry.
  • Slytherin - Values ambition, cunning, and resourcefulness.
  • Ravenclaw - Values intelligence, knowledge, and creativity.

So what does this house choice mean for you in Harry Potter Wizards Unite? Simply put, it means very little. Speaking to our sister site Eurogamer before Wizards Unite released, Warner Bros. Games said that it didn't want to split up the player base by gating houses off from one another. So, you can play with whoever you want in activities like Raids, because your house choice ultimately means very little.

Can You Change Houses in Wizards Unite?

The simple answer to this is yes, you can change your house allegiance in Harry Potter Wizards Unite. In fact, you change your house with the exact same method that you use to sign up to a house in the first place.

Go through exactly the same process once again. Tap on the wizard icon, press the icon of the house that you pledged allegiance to, and you can simply tap on any of the three other houses to switch to them without delay. There aren't any penalties for switching houses in Harry Potter Wizards Unite, so don't worry about the game charging you a fee or anything like that.
