Wampus was one of the four houses at Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in North America.[1] It was named after the magical creature of the same name. Wampus House was sometimes considered to represent the body of a witch or wizard. It was also said that Wampus favoured warriors.[2]


In 1926, Wampus received 450 House points, the highest of the four houses, and won the Excellence in Potions Cup and Arithmancy Achievement Accolade awards.[3]
