Fraternities have existed at Hampden-Sydney for over 150 years, and as of Spring 2014 about 42% of all students are active members. There are eight social fraternities and two fraternity colonies at Hampden-Sydney with national affiliation. In order of their establishment at the College, the fraternities are Sigma Alpha Epsilon (ΣΑΕ), Chi Phi (ΧΦ), Phi Gamma Delta (ΦΓΔ), Sigma Chi (ΣΧ), Kappa Sigma (ΚΣ), Pi Kappa Alpha (ΠΚΑ), Kappa Alpha (ΚΑ), Theta Chi (ΘΧ), Sigma Nu (ΣΝ), and Delta Kappa Epsilon (ΔΚΕ). Pi Kappa Alpha (ΠΚΑ) was re-founded as a colony at Hampden-Sydney in 2011, and Delta Kappa Epsilon (ΔΚΕ) was founded as a colony at Hampden-Sydney in 2012. A social-professional fraternity for students interested in chemistry, Alpha Chi Sigma (ΑΧΣ), was founded in 1971.

The social fraternity system at Hampden- Sydney is governed by the Interfraternity Council, which is responsible for coordinating fraternity activities and upholding the IFC Statutes.
