Rules and Regulations

We don’t always follow the rules, but when we do, these are included:

Please read this website carefully and see the house manager or president if you have any questions. Also note that Phi Beta Pi provides equal opportunity to all health professions students, and does not discriminate based upon age, gender, race, nationality, or field of study. Admissions are rolling, and are voted upon by house members in a first-come, first-served basis.

Privacy: Each house member is entitled to their own privacy. We share the unisex bathrooms and showers with a strong respect for one another’s privacy. We have a total of five bathroom stalls and six individual showers, varying on each floor of the co-op. Most residents choose to keep their doors unlocked or open, though we have a strict policy to not enter a room without the resident’s permission. Rooms can be locked if desired.

  • There are two people per refrigerator and food cabinet, and we are each responsible for our own cooking and cleaning.
  • This is not a “club house”; it is our home. With a large and diverse group of people living together, it is especially important to be respectful and courteous toward our roommates.
  • All new members are on probation for the first six months so we can all make sure we get along with them. If everything goes well, they are voted in as permanent members at that time.

Probation: People failing to comply with house standards and rules (e.g. failing to do chores, missing dish duty, being financially delinquent, or any combination of the above) will be placed on probation. During the probationary period (less than one quarter) the person must display impeccable behavior and make any amends required by the house and/or house officers. If the person fails to comply, that person will be asked to move out. Any such person may request general discussion and house vote on the issue, whereupon reversal of the decision will require a two thirds majority house vote.

Non-Profit Status: Phi Beta Pi is a non-profit organization run by Dr. Bill Brady, a former member. To see our tax return designating us as a non-profit organization, click here: Beta Nu Chapter of Phi Beta Pi
