Sorority living encompasses a cohesive community that values civic and social responsibility, mutual respect, and the growth of organizations and their members. The environment provides a unique experience in leadership, community planning, and group interaction. The majority of Panhellenic chapters reside in on-campus housing in South Halls, with one chapter living in an off-campus house.
Each sorority chapter has a designated space in South Halls, which offers double-occupancy rooms and individual private-use bathrooms. Each chapter also has a dedicated suite that offers a living room and kitchenette for exclusive use by chapter members.
Chapters are eager to welcome new members to sorority housing! It is strongly recommended that as a new member, you live in the chapter – this provides a great way for you to bond with your sisters and be involved with chapter activities. After you complete primary recruitment and accept a bid, the chapter will discuss living in sorority housing with you.
Housing space on the chapter floor is reserved for chapter members, with most of the space designated for second-year students. The chapter may have to limit the number of third- and fourth-year students who live on the floor.

Students interested in sorority chapter housing should consider their housing plans to determine which course of action to take:
- If you want to live on campus for the next academic year, whether or not you are assigned to sorority chapter housing, you should participate in the LiveOn Housing Process for current students. You will Request Housing in October; in November invitations are sent out and you can review housing options, select a space, and create/accept a Housing and Food Service (HFS) Contract offer.
If you are then invited to live on the sorority chapter floor after recruitment ends, your HFS Contract will be converted to the sorority chapter contract and a room assignment will be processed. No further action is required.
- If you are only interested in living in sorority chapter housing (meaning, you do not want to live on campus in any housing option unless it is for sorority chapter housing), you should not participate in the LiveOn Housing Process for current students. If you are then invited to live on the sorority chapter floor, you will receive an HFS Contract offer in early February, which you need to accept before the offer expiration date, and then a room assignment will be processed.
