Greek Housing

RIT's Greek organizations began in the early twentieth century, when the school still inhabited the downtown campus. Here you can see the old Phi Kappa Tau fraternity house on South Plymouth Avenue in the Third Ward.

When RIT made the switch to Henrietta, the Student Services Board Committee and the Housing Sub-Committee decided Greek life should follow and in 1966, the Gamma Nu chapter of Phi Kappa Tau was the first to charter.

These days, members of fraternities and sororities make up about 5 to7 percent of the student body annually and RIT supports housing in the residence halls and free-standing houses, like the Phi Kappa Tau house located between Riverknoll and Global Village.
