Do sororities provide housing?
All of the NPC general sororities operate chapter houses adjacent to UCLA on Hilgard Avenue which provide the opportunity for small group living. Since the membership recruitment process occurs during the fall quarter, new students should secure their own housing for the fall quarter. Typically, 1st years live on-campus in residence halls or apartments, and many then move into sorority houses during their 2nd and 3rd years (residence hall contracts are on an annual basis).
Must I live in the chapter house if I wish to join a Panhellenic sorority?
Almost half of the members of residential Greek organizations live in the chapter houses in any given quarter, although most members do live in the chapter house for part of their tenure at UCLA.
- IT IS THE EXPECTATION that anyone joining a Panhellenic sorority at UCLA reside in the chapter house for a minimum of one year. However, each chapter has specific requirements. Make sure to ask.
Can students use financial aid to pay sorority housing?
Yes, however you have to indicate that you are living off campus in order to use financial aid for sorority housing.
What if I am a transfer student?
Transfer students should expect to live in the chapter house during their senior year at UCLA. If you have not solidified your living arrangements with the Office of Residential Life, and still need a place to live, see below for more information on available housing for women. The Sorority Boarding Houses rent quarterly. Due to the amount of women studying abroad, there is a possibility that spaces may become available in the chapter houses during either the winter or spring quarters. It is not possible to live in the house without being a member.
