Living options

Fraternities and Sororities

Fraternities and sororities are values-based organizations dedicated to making better men and women. Several have housing options, too. Chapter houses surround the campus, and all are within walking distance. The chapter facilities are owned by alumni corporations, not by K-State, and provide room and board and study facilities, along with leadership, social and intramural activities.

All sororities and most fraternities have a house director who supervises the kitchen operations, plans the menus, mentors members, and oversees chapter facility operations. Not every chapter houses its members.


K-State has 30 fraternities, including four historically African-American fraternities and one historically Latino fraternity. Recruitment is year-round, but most select members in the spring and summer months. Freshmen are usually required to live in fraternity chapter houses.


K-State has 18 sororities, including four historically African-American sororities and one historically Latina sorority. Formal Panhellenic recruitment is held the week before fall classes. Sororities don't house freshman women, so you will need to arrange a residence hall or apartment contract your first year.
