The majority of UT’s sorority and fraternity houses are freestanding houses located on university property. Currently there are 33 sorority and fraternity housing facilities. The houses sleep anywhere from 15 to 51 members, and all facilities have a live-in house director who assists in managing the day-to-day functions of the house.
If you are selected to live in a Greek house, you will receive a housing contract from your sorority or fraternity. Your organization will facilitate the contract process and turn in all housing contracts to the Office of Sorority & Fraternity Life. You will be billed rent through MyUTK for each semester that you live in the house.
A sorority or fraternity housing contract is a fall and spring contract unless you have special permission to live there only for one semester. The housing contract is binding, just like a residence hall contract or a lease, so be sure you agree to the length of the contract before you sign. In order to live in a sorority or fraternity house, you must maintain enrollment at UT and remain in good standing with your sorority or fraternity.
Sorority and fraternity students currently living in Greek houses who wish to return to university housing for the fall 2017 semester may participate in Different Hall, Different Room selection beginning February 13, 2017.
