According to tradition, the Sorting Hat should assign students a place in a specific house. But in Hogwarts Legacy, you can choose your House at the beginning of the game.
Houses in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry
Students and Professors of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry belong to or come from one of the four Student Houses. Houses are like associations, bringing together people who share similar values and beliefs. The four houses are: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin.
