Greek Row Chapter Houses

Greek chapter houses are considered off-campus properties. They are privately owned and operated by alumni corporations or inter/national organizations. On average, 2-4 people share a day room with desks, dressers, and closets. Most students sleep on a sleeping porch. Chapters provide meals via a cook, catering, or dining plans for their members. Fraternity Live-In Advisors and Sororities House Directors are hired by the organization and live in the house in order to advise house operations and help ensure safety. Laundry services vary, but many chapters offer the use of washers and dryers. Parking varies and first year students are discouraged from bringing a car. 
Olympia Hall is one of the on-campus residence hall where UGA and NPHC are able to reside.

Multicultural Chapter Housing

Multicultural chapters in both UGA & NPHC do not have chapter houses.  Instead, their members often live in apartments and houses independently and conduct official business, programming, social events, and meetings at an on-campus location.

First-Year Student Housing & University Approved Housing

Most students will live in the Residence Halls for their first year. Those participating in IFC & PHC Recruitment in August will need a Residence Hall contract and will move into their room and live there during Recruitment Week.  There are a few exceptions.  Each year, chapters who wish to house freshmen go through the University Approved Housing process. The CFSL checks to see that chapters have passed health and fire inspections, have liability and property insurance, and have met many other requirements. Chapters granted University Approved Housing status are able to invite freshmen to live in the facility. Due to large chapter sizes, not all fraternities/sororities choose to or are able to house new members during their freshman year. The majority of sorority women will live in a residence hall until they are able to move in the fall or spring semester of their sophomore year. Approximately half of fraternity freshmen live in the residence halls during fall semester and if space becomes available in the fraternity house, move in spring semester.  To live in a fraternity house as a first-year member, men must join a chapter over the summer and break their hall contract by July 15.
