About Fraternity and Sorority Housing
Members of a given chapter who are Columbia College, SEAS and Barnard College students with guaranteed housing are eligible to live in Fraternity and Sorority Housing. Due to the Columbia-Barnard Housing exchange and the history of selection and placement in the respective houses, there is a cap on the number of BC students who can reside in each space. Following is the BC cap for each organization:
- DG - 4
- KAT - 5
- AXO - 2
- SDT - 4
- ADP - 6
Apply to the Fraternity and Sorority Program
Contact Residential Life for more information about the application process.
Students in Fraternities and Sororities who plan to live in Greek Housing must register during the Room Selection registration period. Room assignments are made by the respective House Managers and are provided to Columbia Housing. After assignments are made, students in Fraternity and Sorority Housing must log into the Housing Portal to complete their Academic Year Housing application and indicate the corresponding category declaration, including completing the Statement of Intent step and the Occupancy Agreement step. Students who fail to complete their Academic Year Housing application during the Room Selection registration period lose their guaranteed housing status and must follow the Non-Guaranteed Housing application process.
Room Swap and Room Transfer request forms within Fraternity and Sorority Housing must be signed by a resident's House Manager and/or the GA or the Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life.
Fraternity and Sorority Housing is not available during summer session. Sponsored Early Arrival and Fall Interim students may not move into Fraternity and Sorority Housing until the Wednesday before the official upperclass Check-In date.
