Greek Row


The Greek Row Houses are provided by the university as an invitation to Greek society groups. The intention is that they are given one of the on-campus houses as their headquarters for no more than five years, encouraging them to grow to a size where they can establish their own fraternity housing nearby. This has worked well, attracting fraternities to the university so shortly after its founding.

  • Alpha Tau Omega (Fraternity): Fraternity with a lot of athletes and engineers.
  • Alpha Phi Omega (Service Cofraternity): Coed frat known for big social justice concerns.
  • Delta Omicron Sigma (Veterans' Cofraternity): Coed frat made up of military veterans.
  • Phi Sigma Nu (Native American Cofraternity): Coed frat made up of Native American students.
  • Pi Kappa Alpha (Fraternity): Fraternity known for its heavy partying.
  • Theta Phi Alpha (Sorority): Only sorority on campus. Fairly diverse, with a strong social emphasis.

Dormitory Quads

The UofA Dorms are all built along the same lines, arranged around a central quad that serves as a place for recreation and relaxation, a central social hub for many of the students. Many of these quads also have small street-food cart vendors set up there from midday to just before dark, providing quick and easy food outside of the Student Center's food court.
