Fraternities and Sororities have been an integral part of the California State University, Northridge campus since its founding. Today CSUN is home to more than 51 National and local Greek-letter organizations, which collectively constitute the largest membership-based and multi-faceted community on campus. Additionally, CSUN's fraternity and sorority organizations represent one of the most diverse fraternity and sorority Communities on the West Coast.
Representing 6% of the student population, fraternity and sorority members are committed to their academics, volunteer time in the community, develop and strengthen leadership skills, form a campus and cultural support network. Some of CSUN's Fraternities and Sororities privately own and operate affordable housing off of campus property. The University encourages these organizations to seek the proper Conditional Use Permit from the city of Los Angeles so as to maintain their activities in accordance with all city expectations.
Considering many of our students are new to living on their own for the first time away from family oversight, they are new to understanding the dynamics of being good neighbors, especially in residential communities surrounding the campus. We have developed this webpage in an effort to support a greater understanding for our neighbor constituents on living next to students who may be involved in a fraternity or sorority. You will see below our suggested process for working through differences when they arise. Please explore these suggestions and processes listed here as well as our policies and procedures listed on the Matador Involvement center websites. You may also contact any of the persons below for more information. We hope that you will develop positive relationships with our students and see them as valuable contributors to your local community and within the surrounding San Fernando Valley.
In the event that you have concerns or positive feedback, please contact any of the following CSUN staff that work with our fraternity and sorority community:
