The Michigan Alpha chapter of Phi Kappa Psi and the University of Michigan share a storied tradition dating back to 1876. The Michigan Alpha chapter has influences the lives of more than 1,650 men, and while the undergraduate experience is certainly more than the bricks and mortar of the chapter house, our home undoubtedly plays a significant role in the development of brotherhood and as a proud symbol of our shared values and goals. Chapter alumni and undergraduate leadership have developed a plan to address the long-term viability of the chapter facility as well as shorter term chapter housing needs. The decision was made to purchase a chapter house at 630 Oxford in June of 2011. This location is situated among other Greek houses on Washtenaw Avenue, just a quick walk from central campus. Phase two of the project includes extensive renovations to the property, with plans to expand the chapter house to accommodate up to 35 live-in members. While Michigan Alpha remains the premiere fraternity on the University of Michigan campus, providing for clean, safe housing will ensure that chapter members excel academically and remain leaders on campus and in the community for generations to come.
