Rho Pi Chapter

Located south of campus with many of RPI’s other Greek organizations, The Rho Pi chapter moved into the house in 1956 and they haven’t looked back. Since being built in the 1800’s, the house has its fair share of legends and lore, including being the city of Troy mayoral home at one time. The house was also listed as the address on the second ever driver’s license issued in the United States! 

While renovations and improvements have taken place over the years, several large scale chapter led projects give the house a ton of character. The house has an expansive first floor, with a several multipurpose spaces and a commercial kitchen. Each bedroom is unique and many contain decorations from inspired past tenants. There is also an original coach house outside that is used for storage, but the dream is to one day renovate it into a functional space for the chapter!
