When I was at Carnegie-Mellon in the Late 1980s, Most of the Fraternities and All of the Sororities were in houses owned by the school, and if you were in one of thouse houses, you were still on a campus housing contract just like being in a dorm.

Penn State Behrend also doesn't permit freshmen to have cars on campus. At least they didn't when I attended.

It's a private school and can pretty much make whatever rules they want.

I'm thinking many of these fraternities will have civil claims. I could imagine fraud, tortuous interference in contract, conversion (if the school's plan involves buying these houses it has now rendered economically impaired, conspiracy, negligence.

No, I don't think schools, even private schools, are completely immune to liability for their actions.

They still are. When I was back there in April I asked that specific question.

I also was in school during the Ice Age. At the time, anyone who pledged a fraternity or independent living group was required to move into the house as soon as they signed. Only one sorority out of the five on campus at the time had a house, and it wasn't big enough to house all the sisters, never mind new members, so the move-in-when-you-sign rule did not apply to sororities.

Undergrads at my school were *ahem* "highly discouraged" from having cars. There was a lottery for the few available spaces. Not a problem where I went to school, just outside Boston, as we had the T and taxis and our own two feet. (No Uber back in the Ice Age.)

I'll stop threadjacking now.
