The Founding of Pi Lambda Phi

The Massachusetts Theta chapter at MIT was founded in 1897, two years after the Pi Lambda Phi Fraternity was established on March 21, 1895 at Yale University. Pi Lambda Phi is known for being the first non-sectarian fraternity to exist.

The House at 450 Beacon St.

Nestled directly across the river with a nice direct view of Killian Court is the Pi Lambda Phi fraternity house. Located in the historic Back Bay of Boston, our house is three blocks away from many shops and restaurants on Newbury Street, five blocks from the Prudential Tower, and within walking distance of Hynes Convention Center, Fenway Park, the Green Line and many other places. Our house can hold up to 36 brothers, although some choose to live in the dorms. Our house has an open door policy, meaning that no inside door can have a lock on it. This policy is for fire safety and also creates a very social atmosphere. The brothers at Pi Lambda Phi have a variety of interests, ranging from Dancetroupe to Formula SAE. During the summers, we rent some of our rooms to people who wouldn’t find better priced living elsewhere. Every night before an official day of class, our chef Janin prepares dinner.
