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.

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
