The Kappa Delta Chapter House - Your “Home Away from Home”
Shared living accommodations and group living are among the cornerstones of the collegiate experience. Whether it be dedicated residential halls or the traditional sorority houses, Kappa Delta provides its members with a safe, secure and collegial environment in which to learn and grow.
Why Live in the Kappa Delta Chapter House?
1. Its fun! Just think of all the friends close by.

facilities have fire sprinklers and all have smoke detectors. We have a
“no open flame policy” and “no smoking policy”—two of the leading
causes of residential fires.

on campus or a short walk to campus. You can come home from class, eat
lunch and go back to class.

groups, sharing class notes, internet wiring, computer availability,
quiet hours—all contribute to a positive environment in which to study.
12. It’s affordable! Sorority housing is often less
expensive than dorm living and even less expensive than off-campus
living when you consider utilities, gas, furniture, pots and pans,
groceries, parking fees.

lifetime. Your fondest memories of Kappa Delta will occur in the
chapter house…you don’t want to miss out!
What People Are Saying About Chapter Housing
When my daughter moved into the
Kappa Delta house, I knew she would have good hot meals, a clean and
safe environment, and most of all be surrounded by people who care
about her. As a parent, that is a great feeling when your daughter is
away at college. If she can’t be living with me, I am glad she is
living with Kappa Deltas!
Janice Birsinger, mother of Julie
I was hesitant to live in the Kappa Delta house as a senior, but,
looking back, it was a great decision. I will never again have the
opportunity to live with 30 of my closest friends. They were my family
away from home.
Delta Omega-Mississippi State
The sorority living experience is not only a wonderful
opportunity for fun and community, it is likely the safest living
environment available on campus. Kappa Delta is constantly researching
new ways to make their facilities safer. The policies and the chapter’s
ability to enforce those policies create a living environment that
would reassure any parents concerned about their daughter’s well-being.

There's always someone to talk to... I love it because it feels like home, and I get to live with all my sisters!
Alpha Kappa-Oregon State
A Kappa Delta house is much more than a dormitory. As house
corporation president, my role is to make sure collegians have a safe,
comfortable, and attractive place to call home. Having lived in the KD
house during my college years, I take pride in ensuring that the house
exceeds the expectations of its residents, year after year.
Lisa Durrenberger, house corporation president
Phi Epsilon-Colorado State
What a privilege and joy to be a Kappa Delta housemother! This is
not a job; it is a life with extremely wonderful rewards of working
with young people who are striving for excellence in their studies,
personal growth, and daily activities. The benefits also include
working with a board of true aestheticians and professional
businesswomen who are devoted to this house. They set the standards of
excellence for the house, themselves and the young KD women.
