Continuing the legacy of Delta Gamma

The Delta Gamma house at the University of Florida is one of several sorority houses Treanor has designed on the Gainesville campus. This experience is key when creating a living space that integrates into the existing chapter experience and Greek community.

The Gamma Theta chapter of Delta Gamma was the first sorority house built at the University of Florida in 1949. While continuing the chapter’s legacy and maintaining the symbol of tradition the house stood for, our team helped design an innovative new house to replace the original. This new house was important because it would continue establishing Delta Gamma as a strong presence on campus.

Our team worked with members of the local chapter to design a new three-story 26,000 SF sorority house that sleeps 71 members. The new house needed to include nods to the original one and provide a sense of community among its members. This was achieved through interior details throughout the main spaces. The house now includes a large dining and chapter room that opens onto a shaded patio and a second-floor anchor room that opens onto a sundeck. Members enjoy new areas to hang out with sisters and gather with friends. The house also includes dedicated study rooms on each floor with areas for proctored tests and job interview preparation.

The new Delta Gamma house is a physical reminder of the sorority’s strong legacy on the University of Florida campus and acts as a functional space for generations of new members to live and gather.
