Although a teacher might grant you, or another student, points for their respective houses, the house points do not matter. They’re narrative flavor text woven into the primary story and don’t have any direct gameplay mechanic you need to worry about. It’s an addition to the other pieces of Hogwarts lore and not something you need to try working on while playing Hogwarts Legacy.

House points working in Hogwarts Legacy, explained

How house points works is all houses at Hogwarts compete to win the house cup, and the winner is announced at the end of the year. Teachers can grant students points for multiple reasons, from doing well in classes, helping around the castle, or doing unusual activities and challenges on the house grounds. Teachers can also take away house points as a form of punishment for the students, potentially preventing them from winning the big award at the end of the year.
