Thinking of joining a fraternity or sorority?

Of the 90 chapters on campus, 54 offer housing. Each facility is privately owned and operated, with rates comparable to other living options. Once you’ve been granted membership into the house of your choice, living with your new sisters or brothers makes for great bonding.

Transfers have options too.

If you've lived in a residence hall before, you might be able to live off campus. For those who must live in housing owned or certified by the university, don't worry—you’re not limited! You have lots of choices, including our popular Transfer Community in Scott Hall.
