Yes! Each facility is uniquely designed for the needs of the membership. Each chapter house has a kitchen on the 1st floor. Second kitchens are located on the 2nd floor for fraternities and 3rd floor for sororities. Each kitchen houses appliances for students to use as well as storage for food, utensils, and more. Chapter are responsible for small appliances, dishes, and paper products as well as cleaning the kitchen on a regular basis.

In addition to what has previously been described for each bedroom and kitchen, you will find the following additional items:

  • Free Laundry Room
  • Study Lounges on each floor
  • Internet – WiFi & Hardwire Plug-Ins

  • TCU cleans common areas in the sorority facilities – common spaces, bathrooms on 1st, 2nd, and 4th floors.

TCU DOES NOT provide soap, hand sanitizer, trash cans, or paper towels for suite bathrooms on the 2nd floor for fraternity facilities and 3rd floor for sorority facilities. TCU does not provide these items to any suite style or apartment rooms across campus. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the members or chapter to provide for those spaces.

Fraternity & Sorority housing utilizes the same meal plans offered by TCU. All first and second year students are required to have a meal plan; however, third and fourth year students who live on the Officer Floor (located on 2nd floor for fraternity facilities and located on 3rd floor for sorority facilities) can opt out of the meal plan.

Living in a chapter facility is a unique opportunity for upperclassmen at TCU in many ways.  First, students live with their chapter members in their chapter house where they can strengthen relationships with brothers and/or sisters. In addition, students can attend various chapter and community programs with members of their chapter and other members of the community. Each facility is supported by an RA, who is a member of the chapter, and a Hall Director who encourage the growth and development of each resident.  As a resident of the chapter facility, students immerse themselves in brotherhood/sisterhood events and opportunities to enhance their membership experience. The common spaces in the facilities are utilized for meetings, study time, and social/formal interactions. Each facility has two kitchens, common spaces on each floor, washer/dryer combination throughout the facility, and more!

Contact your chapter president to learn about the process for filling the chapter house.
