SigEp National Housing was created in the 1950s as the National Housing Corporation. Today, SENH is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity that exists to support the housing initiatives and needs of the fraternity. SENH is led by a Board of Directors who set SENH’s vision, and share guidance, experience and feedback with the full time staff.
Property Management Program
SigEp National Housing strives to support our chapters in providing a safe and healthy living-learning environment for members. One of the services available to chapters is the Property Management Program, where SENH provides a full suite of property management services, including electronic leasing, collections, accounting, and management of repairs, maintenance and projects. When this is done effectively, SigEp volunteers have more time to mentor undergraduates and support the long term health of their chapter and SigEp undergraduates have more time to focus on recruitment, the Balanced Man Program and other priorities. | More
Sigma Phi Epsilon participates in the Fraternal Property Management Association (FPMA), which provides a comprehensive property insurance program specifically designed for fraternity and sorority clients. The FPMA provides broad, reliable property coverage at competitive rates, with several premium discounts available to chapters who take additional steps to reduce risk. Today, more than one hundred SigEp chapters are enrolled in the FPMA property insurance program. | More
SigEp National Housing serves as a lender to 40 SigEp chapters throughout the country, with a principal balance over $29 million. SENH provides loans for house acquisitions, renovations and refinances. Discounted interest rate loans are available for chapters wishing to invest in life safety improvements. Additionally, every chapter has an account held in SigEp’s Chapter Investment Fund, from which the chapter’s AVC can borrow. | More
Equity Management Fund
SigEp National Housing created the Equity Management Fund (“EMF”) in 1979 to allow AVCs a means of depositing savings in a fund with favorable rates of return. In turn, these funds are used to advance SigEp housing initiatives across the country. The EMF provides AVCs a safe way to invest their savings, because SENH pays interest on all deposits at a rate equal to ½ percent below the United States Treasury 10-year note, adjusted on the first day of January, April, July and October and applied to the date of withdrawal. | More
