Housing

  • UCLA's Residential Greek-letter organizations maintain their own private housing adjacent to campus. Over 1000 men and women are provided with housing opportunities in fraternity and sorority chapter facilities. Each person living in a Greek chapter house keeps an independent schedule, but everyone gathers for weekly meetings and chapter-wide events.

    Generally, fraternity and sorority housing is available the second year of membership. In both cases, membership often exceeds those that live-in the chapter houses with an average capacity for sororities at 50, fraternities at 40.

    Fraternities and sororities are managed and maintained by established housing corporations that own the properties and take care of major upkeep and repairs. There are a variety of amenities such as study areas, storage spaces, computer rooms and laundry facilities. Living in a fraternity or a sorority chapter house offers students with many benefits and includes a variety of services.

    • It is the expectation that all members live in the facility for 1 year. If a student is a transfer student to UCLA, it is the expectation that during their 4th year, they live in the chapter facility.

    Very often the perception is that fraternities and sororities are too expensive to join. However, contrary to this belief, Greek organizations can be quite affordable since housed organizations are able to maintain and provide members with below average costs for room, board, and dues. In comparison to other living options in Westwood, Greek-life can be a bargain.

    Chapter fees fund various activities of the organization such as academic programs, service activities, alumni and parent events, national dues and lifetime membership.

    What is included in fraternity / sorority living:

    • House director/advisor supervision (all sororities and some fraternities)
