MIT's Lamba Phi chapter of Alpha Delta Phi consists of approximately 50 brothers. The fraternity's house is located north of MIT at 351 Massachusetts Ave.

The national organization has a strong emphasis on literary and artistic pursuits. In keeping with this theme, MIT's chapter hosts an annual literary competition called Mic-Check for MIT and Wellesley students. Annual social events include Midnight Madness and the FOAM party.


ADP is the southern half of a beautiful 5 story mansion located at 351 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, MA. Located just south of Central Square, it has the benefits of being surrounded by a wealth of restaurants, coffeeshops, museums, and more (including the world-famous Toscanini's right behind the house). Yet they also have the convenience of living near campus, just a 7 minute walk from 77 Mass Ave, 6 minutes from the Z center, and 10 minutes from Kendall Square. Finally, it's a short walk or bike ride into Boston if you want to experience the city for an afternoon or a day.


Our house itself is one of the most special parts of ADPhi. Unlike most houses and dorms which require members to live in doubles, triples, or quads, all of our rooms are singles! Brothers are free to modify their rooms any way they like and we even provide a 75% subsidy for permanent additions such as shelving or paint.

Joining ADP

ADP organizes rush every fall during the MIT fall rush week. MIT students can visit the house during the rush week to participate in rush events and get to know the brothers and culture of ADP. The brothers of ADP than invite prospective members to join the fraternity at the end of MIT rush week. Those who accept the bid become pledges at ADP. The rush schedule for ADP can be found here.
