This article is about the entrance to a player's house. For the room where players can build teleportation portals, see Portal Chamber.

The POH portal, commonly referred to as a house portal, is the entrance to a player's house, the main feature of the Construction skill. To use the portal, left-click on the portal and then choose one of the four presented options:

  • Enter your own house (only works if your house is in the same location as the portal)
  • Enter your own house in building mode (only works if your house is in the same location as the portal)
  • Go to another player's house (only works if their house is in the same location as the portal, they are on the same world, they are in their house, and they have private chat set so that you can message them)
  • Take no action

Travelling to house portals[edit | edit source]

The house loading screen.

The most basic way to get to a house is by walking to the portal that is in the location of the house. At level 40 Magic, players can use the House Teleport spell to teleport directly into the player's own house. Using a house teleport tablet is another option that only uses one inventory space and does not require a Magic level to use. In the house options screen, players can choose whether the house teleports land the player in the house itself or outside the portal. After completion of Love Story, players can use chipped house teleport tablets to teleport to any portal regardless of their house location.
