Penn State has a few levers by which they might exert control. They might collaborate with municipal government to zone Greek housing out of existence, i.e., require orgs to be in good standing with the University to be able to operate the sort of facilities FSL houses operate as. They might even try to limit students' ability to join organizations by penalizing them for doing so. There are arguments which can be made, i.e., that the school is regulating the Greek Community because it has a duty to promote the health, safety and welfare of its students and that there is real data showing that alcohol abuse, sexual assault, etc., go along with FSL organizations.

No one has had that fight in court of which I am aware, and that's because neither side is sure of the outcome.
