Background Summary 

The University of Texas at Austin has 1,100 registered student organizations, including close to 70 social sororities and fraternities. Many undergraduates are affiliated with fraternities and sororities, which often provide a sense of community and connection to other students that make their university experience positive and memorable. These sororities and fraternities are divided into seven council communities. No sororities or fraternities are housed on university property. These organizations, like all student organizations, are required to complete safety education with their membership each year to maintain their status as registered student organizations.
