Greek Housing

Some of UCLA’s Greek-letter organizations maintain their own private housing adjacent to campus. The average capacity for a fraternity house is 40 students, average capacity for a sorority house is 50 students. Fraternity and sorority housing is generally available the second year of membership and members are encouraged to live in the facility for at least one year.

Fraternity and sorority chapter houses are managed and maintained by established housing corporations that own the properties and take care of major upkeep and repairs. View the Map of IFC and Panhellenic Council Chapter houses. Chapters who do not have a house can be reached in the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life.

What may be included in fraternity/sorority living:

  • House director/advisor supervision
  • Full service meals provided by cooks or catering services
  • Study areas, computer rooms, and access to academic resources
  • Comparable dorm-style room set-ups (will vary by fraternity or sorority)
  • Security and patrol systems (varies by chapter)
  • Coin-operated washers and dryers on-site
  • Parking (limited and will vary by fraternity or sorority)

Greek facilities offer affordable housing with below average costs for room and board. In comparison to other living options in Westwood, Greek life can be a bargain.
