Feeling the need for additional space in the college’s current Greek housing, Arizona State University and American Campus Communities created the Greek Leadership Village, a public-private partnership to redevelop existing apartments into campus housing for 27 Greek organizations.
The $75 million Greek Leadership Village, the first community of its kind at ASU and among the first in the country, was constructed in direct response to student demand and feedback and opened in the fall of 2018. The 957-bed community will house fraternity and sorority members in a cluster of 3 or 4-story townhouse-style dwellings, each ranging from 19 to 41 beds. The development provides living and learning environments for students.
The centerpiece of the Village is a $14 million 33,000-square-foot community center with meeting and activity space for every chapter at ASU, not just those with housing in the village. The community center, which includes retail space and a ballroom, also has council offices, and housing facilities to support their leadership, growth and development for years to come.
