KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The University of Kansas has banned two fraternities from its campus for a number of violations of the KU Code of Student Rights and Responsibilities.

On Tuesday, both Phi Delta Theta and Phi Gamma Delta were removed until 2027.

The two fraternities were listed in the university's Organizational Conduct Status Report.

Among the violations Phi Delta Theta was accused were harm to persons, hazing, retaliation and abuse of conduct process.

According to the Associated Press, Phi Delta Theta was accused of routinely breaking the personal items of pledges and throwing pillows and mattresses out of the window.

Phi Gamma Delta was cited for harm to persons, hazing, use of taken property and other violations of property.

Investigation reports show that in the Phi Gamma Delta chapter, a pledge was concussed after being thrown against a locker, and pledges were made to sleep in beds covered with vomit, urine and trash, according to the Associated Press.
