We wanted to provide some direct and accurate information about our Brand New Sigma Chi Fraternity House located on the URI campus which opened January 2015.
The New House is a State of the Art College Residence Facility, with the following features:
NOTE: The room and board cost is about equal to the University Dorms and meal plan.
Physically and Organizationally, we feel the Sigma Chi House will be a Safer and Better Supervised Residence than the University Dorms.
We are fortunate to have hired a full-time Resident Director, with exceptional training and experience. Click the following link to see her resume.

The Alumni Housing Corporation has also designed and built the new House to exceed all safety and regulatory requirements.
What Makes Sigma Chi Fraternity Different from the Rest?
We are a "Value Based Organization," who hold ourselves to a Higher Standard vs the stereotypical "Animal House Fraternities."
We Recruit and operate our organization based on the Seven Virtues of our Jordan Standard, which can be seen on the left.
We know our young Brothers are going to learn to socialize and enjoy themselves! However, we stress doing so while developing individual accountability and responsibility.
Sigma Chi is Proactively addressing some of today's most Relevant Social Issues on College Campus' Today.
Two new programs developed and initiated by the International Fraternity are:
Building on Personal & Leadership Development
Living in the Sigma Chi House provides the opportunity to focus on Academics, while also experiencing Personal Development and Growth. In other words you learn about yourself, while developing and practicing the "People and Leadership Skills" required for personal and professional success today.
