Alpha Delta Phi was the second fraternity established at the University of Alabama, coming onto campus in 1851. After being disbanded during the Civil War, a group of 9 men reactivated the chapter in 2012.


In July of 2015, the brothers of Alpha Delta Phi at UA proudly accepted their official charter from Alpha Delta Phi International.


Our original chapter house was burned down during the Civil War. We are proud to call 524 Jefferson Ave our new home.
