We encourage new students to the University of Illinois to live in Private Certified Housing facilities where they receive support through Residence Life Staff as well other amenities and services. In some cases, first-year students may also be eligible to live in Greek housing during their second semester on campus. However, membership must first be granted before living in most houses, and membership recruitment varies with each organization. Additionally, to live in a fraternity or sorority as a first-year, the house must be on a list of University of Illinois Certified Housing facilities. as these facilities are required to meet special University Housing standards.
For more information about Greek life at Illinois, visit the Fraternity & Sorority Affairs website.
