Sigma Nu offers affordable housing accommodations to its members at its wholly-owned Chapter House. With 21 rooms this historic 1921 mansion built for housing Sigma Nu’s is one of the most prominent buildings on Bancroft Way.

Across from Boalt School of Law and Café Strada, Sigma Nu is the housing complex nearest the heart of the UC Berkeley campus. Minutes away from Sproul Plaza and Sather Gate and with a bus stop across the street, Sigma Nu is the prime location to walk to class or catch the TransBay bus to SF. See where we’re located.

In addition to the great social, philanthropic, and academic activities we hold being a member of Sigma Nu allows us a unique living environment with amenities that are not available in apartments nor dormitories.
