FSILGs (Fraternities, Sororities, and Independent Living Groups)

Building W59, Room 200


MIT recognizes 39 fraternities, sororities, and independent living groups [FSILGs]. Of these, 25 are nationally affiliated fraternities and two are local. There are also six living groups, five of which are coed and one is for women only. All six women's sororities are nationally affiliated; five have chapter houses. There are 26 fraternity chapter houses, most of which are independently owned and operated by the respective FSILG's house corporation and are located off campus in the Boston, Brookline, and Cambridge communities. MIT strongly supports student self-governance and relies heavily upon the student FSILG governing councils to oversee the actions of their member organizations. The Interfraternity Council [IFC] acts as the governing body for the fraternities. The Panhellenic Association (Panhel) represents the sororities. The Living Group Council (LGC)represents the living groups. From time to time, MIT may recognize National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) and National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO) fraternities and sororities although there are no currently activel NPHC and NALFO groups recognized by the FSILG Office at MIT.
