Fraternity & Sorority Housing
Housing arrangements for each fraternity and sorority at Illinois Wesleyan University vary as some chapters own their houses and some chapters live in University-owned facilities. The actual living arrangements vary greatly in regard to how many members may reside in a house, and in each room.
University-Owned Chapter Houses
Four fraternities are currently housed in University-owned chapter houses. These chapters are: Acacia, Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI), Tau Kappa Epsilon, and Theta Chi.
Each chapter has a House Manager that works with the Office of Student Involvement 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 six 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 not 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 board or coporation that employs 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 cook employed to prepare meals. Additionally, each chapter establishes their own housing costs. Privately-owned chapter houses are typically closed during May term.
