Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life

Thank you for your interest in fraternity and sorority life at the University of Washington.

Fraternities and sororities at the University of Washington have been viewed as one of the premiere collegiate experiences since 1896, playing an instrumental role in the lives of thousands of students and alumni. Their mentoring and academic excellence programs, social activities, philanthropic projects and leadership development opportunities contribute much to the University and surrounding Seattle community.

The University currently has nearly 70 fraternities and sororities, which are Registered Student Organizations (RSO). Approximately 4,500 students take part as members. All but two of the organizations maintain membership in a council which provides programs, services and governance. 

The National Pan-Hellenic Council and United Greek Council are advised by the Student Activities Office (SAO). The Interfraternity Council and Panhellenic Association are advised by the Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life (OFSL).

This OFSL website is oriented toward information pertaining to the IFC and Panhellenic along with their member chapters, undergraduate members, alumni/ae and advisers.
