Welcome to Greek Life
Greek life has played an important role for undergraduate students for over 100 years at Washington University in St. Louis. Approximately 2,000 students are members of Greek organizations, making up 32% of the undergraduate population. We currently have 18 chapters, 10 fraternities and 8 sororities. Each sorority has a living room-style suite located in the Women's Building, while 9 of our fraternities reside in University-owned houses (one is located off-campus).
Fraternities and Sororities are supported through the staff within Student Involvement and Leadership. The Greek Life staff, located in Danforth University Center Room 250, aims to provide “one-stop-shopping” for students involved in Greek life.
Please look through our new website to find out more about our community and contact any of our staff members if you have any questions!
Chapter Recognition Announcement:
The Missouri Beta chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity is no longer a recognized fraternity at Washington University in St. Louis. This decision is based upon a pattern of behavior inconsistent with the expectations and policies of both the University and the National Fraternity.
The Phi Chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity is no longer a recognized fraternity at Washington University in St. Louis. This decision is based upon significant violations of University policies, which came to light as part of an ongoing investigation by the Washington University Police Department. In addition, the National Fraternity of Sigma Alpha Mu has disbanded the chapter.
