University-Owned Chapter Houses
Five fraternities are currently housed in University-owned chapter houses. These chapters are: Acacia, Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI), Sigma Chi, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and Theta Chi.
Each chapter has a House Manager that works with the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life on issues such as maintenance, house improvements, and room assignments. Each chapter establishes their own policies with regard to room assignments and many establish additional residency requirements beyond the four semester residency policy established by IWU. Contracts for University-owned chapter houses are signed in October for the following academic year. University-owned chapter houses are typically open during May term.
Privately-Owned Chapter Houses
Four sororities are currently housed in Privately-owned chapter houses. These chapters are: Alpha Gamma Delta, Kappa Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Sigma Kappa.
Each privately-owned chapter house is maintained by a Housing Corp who employ a House Director to manage facility operations. Each chapter establishes their own policies with regard to room assignments and many establish additional residency requirements beyond the six semester residency policy established by IWU. Privately-owned houses commonly run their own meal plan with a fraternity cook employed to prepare meals while chapters living in University-owned houses board with Dining Services. Additionally, each chapter establishes their own housing costs. Privately-owned chapter houses are typically closed during May term.
