This was the first house on the University of Texas campus to be built as a sorority house. Today, the Omega chapter house is three stories tall, and houses 48 women. In 2009, the chapter house underwent a major renovation! The kitchen, big room, and upstairs bathrooms were completely renovated. New furniture, lighting and décor has been added to the common areas. A variety of structural projects have also been completed, including a new roof, new basement plumbing and exterior work such as new paint, new gutters, new siding and a beautiful double door entryway. Last summer, the chapter house received new bedroom furniture for each room and updates to the dining room area! If you have not had a chance to come by the house since the major renovations have been done, we encourage you to stop by.
