Off-Campus Housing Policy for Residing in a ULM Fraternity/Organization House

  1. It is understood by the University of Louisiana Monroe and local fraternity / organizational house corporations that fraternity / organizational houses (with one exception) are privately owned facilities located on private property and are not on University property.
  2. Fraternity and Sorority houses can be considered institutionally-recognized housing according to the UL System Board of Supervisors. By this definition, Fraternity, Sorority, and Organizational houses must abide by the same terms and conditions as “on-campus” residents.
  3. DEADLINE DATES:  All applications and house rosters are due to the Office of Auxiliary Enterprises (Sandel Hall 387) no later than April 1st for the Fall Semester and November 15th for the Spring Semester.  The Fraternity / Organization President and their ULM Faculty Advisor must sign the roster.  ALL residents (names and CWIDs) living in the house must be included on the roster submitted to Auxiliary Enterprises.
  4. All students living in the Fraternity/Organization Housing must be currently enrolled and in good standing (academically, financially and judicially) with ULM.  Students moving into fraternity / Organization housing must meet the same basic requirements as students moving into the residence halls:
  • Fraternity/Organization house residents must have a minimum of 24 hours earned before moving into the fraternity/organization house.
  • Incoming freshmen will not be allowed to move into a fraternity house since recruitment does not take place before the semester starts.
  • Students must have a 2.0 cumulative grade point average.  The Coordinator of Greek Life and the Office of Auxiliary Enterprises will verify GPAs at the end of each term.
  • Fraternity/Organization house residents will be required to purchase at a minimum, the “Village Apartment” meal plan.  Students may up-grade to a full plan if they choose.
  • Students that have earned 75 credit hours by the first day of class will be exempt from the mandatory meal plan requirement.
  • Spring semester move-ins for current students who have a signed on-campus housing contract will not be permitted.
  1. Residents living in fraternity/organization houses must be currently enrolled active or alumni members of the Fraternity and on the official fraternity roster.  This will be verified with the Greek Office.
  2. Since Housing rosters change each semester, fraternities / organizations are strongly encouraged not to enter into a lease with a student for longer than one semester and the lease should contain language that the student must remain in good academic, financial and behavioral standing with the university.
  3. Clearance to reside in a fraternity/organization house will be made on a semester by semester basis by ULM personnel.  Students moving out of the Fraternity/organization house must return to the Residence Halls unless they receive (meet the guidelines) off campus approval from the Office of Auxiliary Enterprises.  Students that qualify to live off campus must get written approval prior to entering into a lease with their fraternity / organization. It is the Fraternity/Organization presidents’ responsibility to notify the Office of Auxiliary Enterprises of any changes in the housing rosters during the semester and  between semesters.  If additions are made after the semester roster has been submitted, the fraternity/organization must contact the Office of Auxiliary Enterprises prior to the student/member moving in or out of the house.
  4. All questions regarding fraternity / organization housing occupancy guidelines are to be directed to the Office of Auxiliary Enterprises.
