Fraternity and Sorority Life

Fraternity and Sorority Life

For over 150 years fraternities and sororities have been part of the student experience at the University of Richmond. Our fraternity and sorority community is made up of 15 organizations all committed to our core values of scholarship, service, leadership, and fellowship.

Being a member of a fraternity or sorority provides a number of leadership experiences that help students engage in the University community and prepare for life after college.

The FSL Community

The fraternity and sorority community at the University of Richmond is comprised of 15 active and vibrant chapters governed by three councils: Interfraternity Council (IFC), National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), and Panhellenic Council (PHC). Each governing council is unique in its operation and serves its chapters according to it’s own philosophy, purpose, and values.

It is all of our responsibility to keep our web safe and healthy for all Spiders. Hazing is prohibited by the University and it is a criminal offense in Virginia. Learn more about our efforts to educate, prevent, and report hazing at the University of Richmond


We’re here to support students participating in recognized chapters of fraternity and sorority life! Our goal is to serve as a primary point of contact—liaising with alumni and chapter headquarters—while empowering student leaders to pursue the principles of scholarship, service, leadership, and fellowship.
