Housing Lobby Info Board

"Housing is your very own plot of land in which you are able to build freely via the blocks you can unlock from the mystery box! Not only can you unlock blocks, but you can also unlock furniture, food, items, and plants."

Housing (a.k.a. Hypixel Housing or Player Housing) is a creative building gamemode where players are given individual square plots to build in called "houses" and can also visit and play in other players' houses. Despite the name, most houses contain minegames such as parkour, PvP, roleplay, or even full-fleged simulator modes. Housing was added with the Mystery Update on August 20, 2015.[1]


By default, players are given one house to build on but can have up to seven plots. Two slots are available through rank upgrades with VIP and MVP giving one slot each. The other four extra plots are purchased in the Hypixel Store for 1,000 gold each.

My Houses[]

The "My Houses" menu can be accessed through the /home command, or though the "My Houses" NPC in the Housing Lobby. Left-clicking on a slot will let the player join the house or create one if the slot is empty. Right-clicking will edit the house allowing the icon to be changed or the house to be duplicated or deleted.

My Houses

Player Housing[]

Players can join other people's houses by using the browsing menu which is accessed through the spruce door ("Travel to someone else's house") in the housing menu or through the "Browse Houses" NPC in the Housing Lobby. The browsing menu's rows (known as channels) can be changed by clicking on them. A specific player's houses can be found with /visit <player>.

Player Housing

Housing Menu[]

This section is a work in progress.

The Housing Menu is the central menu containing all of the main features in Housing. Depending on a player's permissions, the Housing Menu may look different with some features being modified or removed. It contains everything from custom items, settings, permissions, and more.

Housing Menu
Skull Packs

Some sections including Blocks, Plants, and PvP are mostly redundant as players have been able to use creative mode and its menu since March 2021.[2] They include most of the usable blocks and items in Housing including the barrier block in the Blocks menu. The Skull Packs menu offers custom retextured player heads/skulls in 22 different categories; the two SkyBlock packs, "Pet Skins Pack" and "Minion Skins Pack," require Housing+ to use. The Rewards section also includes 18 custom skulls available from reward cards.


The Items menu includes the custom placable and usable features in Housing. It also contains the dragon egg as well as all of the banners which are unlocked throughout the rest of the Hypixel Network.

This section is a work in progress.

Housing+ (Housing Plus) is a one-time purchase item available on the Hypixel Store for 19.99 USD or 1,999 gold.


Despite being disabled from release, redstone now partially functions within housing, though it's a bit buggy. Currently, all redstone functions work within Housing; however, clocks don't work and burn out quickly. Pistons are also fairly buggy, sometimes creating ghost blocks around it that have to be fixed with /housing fixpiston.


The Jukebox is a feature allowing you to play music to all players in the house. It features many custom noteblock songs or versions of real songs like Never Gonna Give You Up (known as "Roll" in game) or The Entertainer (known as "Entertainer" in game).


There are 11 Achievements in Housing, giving a total of 55 Achievement Points.
