The fraternity Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp) and the sororities Sigma Psi Zeta (SYZ) and Sigma Theta Psi (STP) were offered a shared opportunity to claim 1047 Campus Drive as the official house of their chapters at Stanford.

The offers came from the University on Wednesday through an application and deliberation process that began in fall quarter of 2016. The organizations were selected from a number of Greek and multicultural chapters who underwent Standards of Excellence presentations in addition to other rounds of screening. Eligible applicants included Chi Omega, Alpha Phi, alpha Kappa Delta Phi and Kappa Kappa Gamma, among others.

Upon the final decision, the house will welcome the groups for a two-year trial period beginning with the 2017-2018 academic year. Stanford SigEp, SYZ and STP are currently involved in decision processes to end in acceptance or rejection of the offers.

1047 Campus Drive previously housed Stanford’s chapter of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity and is currently a self-operated house for upper class students.

All three organizations have declined to comment with more information at this time.
