The Omega Chapter of the Chi Phi Fraternity is a historic fraternity house located at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

History

In 1902, the Chi Phi fraternity began to investigate the possibility of a presence at the Georgia School of Technology (now Georgia Institute of Technology, commonly known as Georgia Tech) in Atlanta. By 1904, there were eight members at Tech and on June 2 of that year, the Omega Chapter at the school was officially chartered. In 1927, Omega Chapter members began to raise funds for the construction of a new fraternity house, which was constructed between June 1928 and Fall 1929. On June 17, 1982, this building was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
