An extensive remodel at our 18,029 square foot, fully fire sprinklered, three story Chapter House has begun with completion scheduled for mid-July 2017. Chapter House Improvements/upgrades ready for the Fall Academic School Term are:

  1. New Exercise Facility (first floor) - Save time and get great results without having to drive across campus to the north side (Colvin Center).

  2. New Game Room (first floor) – Play pool, shuffleboard, foosball, etc. while you take that much needed break from studies. A great gathering area to hang out with other Phis or that special person in your life.

  3. New Coffee Style Lounge (first floor) – Great social gathering or collaborative group study area.

  4. New dedicated Study Lounge (second floor) – Need a quiet place to spread out your materials and write that important term paper? Have key exam, lab report, or weekly quiz coming up on your calendar? Take advantage of our designated quiet space without needing to head to either the Edmond Low Library or Student Union.

  5. Hi Speed Internet Connections - WIFI Access - Enjoy high speed wireless internet connections throughout the Chapter House. In each bedroom there will also be a dedicated wired LAN connection directly connecting to routers suitable for streaming OSU classroom content for courses that offer online lectures.

  6. New LED lighting: All existing lighting in public first floor areas and private second/third floor areas are being replaced with New LED fixtures. Bedrooms will be furnished with dimmable wall controls so you may adjust lighting levels to suit your individual needs (bright for studying or dim for restful evenings).

  7. Bedrooms – We are fortunate to have some of the largest bedrooms within the Greek Community. New solid core doors with steel metal frames. Each bedroom door lockset will be furnished with a lighted Schlage programmable key pad with interior flex/lock (auto-lock or auto-unlock mode – No Keys to Lose!!!).
