Ohio University does not own or operate any fraternity and sorority properties in the Athens or surrounding areas. Ownership and property management of fraternity and sorority houses lies with the organization’s housing corporation, inter/national headquarters, or other contracted property management entity. Ohio University’s involvement with fraternity and sorority houses is a special relationship in which the university allows second-year students who meet certain eligibility requirements to be exempted from the on-campus housing policy. In order to maintain this exemption, the fraternity/sorority house, property management entity, and membership must comply with certain rules and expectations. A detailed list of these rules and regulations may be found online at
Since each fraternity/sorority house has its own property management entity, their tenants are expected to abide by the terms of the tenant lease agreement. It is the responsibility of the student (and his or her parent(s) or legal guardian(s), if applicable) to read and understand the fraternity/sorority house lease terms PRIOR TO signing a lease agreement. Questions regarding these agreements may be directed to the appropriate contact person for the fraternity/sorority’s property management entity. For further questions, please contact the Assistant Director for Greek Life at 740-593-4065.
