The Mu Iota chapter house has been home to Phi Gamma Delta at the University of Idaho since 1920. The Alpha Kappa Epsilon House Corporation members and the undergraduates have done a credible job of maintaining the house with minor projects, but  the last significant renovation was completed in 1965. The time has passed when small projects can counteract nearly a century of use. Thanks to a significant capital fundraising campaign, the following improvements are planned:


  • Retain historic architecture

  • Lower and resurface driveway, landscape for better water drainage

  • Replace north wing roof, clean and reappoint the exterior brick

  • Paint and reside portions of the north wing

  • Build new deck, replace gutters and downspouts where needed

  • Provide a second route of egress from the south wing

  • Upgrade windows and exterior doors


  • Install sprinklers and fire-rated, self-closing doors

  • Paint and re-carpet throughout

  • Install new lighting and finishes throughout

  • Update electrical/data/mechanical/plumbing systems as necessary

  • Remodel all restrooms with new fixtures

  • Restore library, living room, and dining room

  • Upgrade advisor’s suite

  • Upgrade furniture

  • Upgrade kitchen equipment

  • Update facility for ADA accessibility
