Community Snapshot

Sorority and Fraternity Life works with 72 registered student organizations, advises 6 councils and assists our affiliate organizations in gaining council membership. We provide support services, leadership opportunities and educational programs that assist councils and chapters in developing values-based organizations.

With over 5,400 students and nearly 14% of the undergraduate population, becoming a member of a sorority or fraternity is a popular option for many UT Austin students.
