With roots going back over 100 years, the Iowa Gamma Chapter of Phi Delta Theta has been a mainstay of the Iowa State University Greek community and has positively impacted the lives of its 1,700 initiates. Throughout its rich history, the chapter house has been the center of undergraduate life for Iowa Gamma members.

In 1998, Phi Delta Theta relocated to its current chapter house after 85 years at its previous location. This decision located the chapter more centrally among the Greek houses at Iowa State.

Following fraternity fundraising, improvements were made to the house, and ten years later additional improvements were made to the first floor common areas. This phase addresses some deferred improvements to the first floor and the study rooms and living quarters on the second and third floors.
