Since our first Lodge at the University of Michigan, the presence of a private place for Brothers to gather has enhanced the Chi Psi experience. This gathering place varies from traditional live-in Lodges to residence halls with space allocated to Chi Psi to non-residential meeting locations. Regardless of its form, a sense of place is important for each Alpha.


Recognizing the importance of this fundamental tradition, the Executive Council of Chi Psi formed Spencer Properties in 2007 with the following goals:

  • Assist with Lodge construction for younger Alphas.
  • Provide funding through loans or donations
  • Assume ownership and management of Lodges if a corporation chooses to surrender ownership.
  • Purchase Lodges in danger of being sold to host institutions.
  • Provide consulting services to Chi Psi alumni housing corporations.

In 2012, we developed a national partnership with CSL Management, which provides strategic oversight and property management expertise for Chi Psi properties across the country. For more information on CSL, please contact Woody Ratterman.
