Zeta Psi Fraternity House at Lafayette College is a historic fraternity house located at Easton, Northampton County, Pennsylvania. The house was built by the Tau Chapter, Zeta Psi fraternity associated with Lafayette College. It was built in 1909-1910, and is a 2 1/2 story, nine bay wide, rock-faced granite building with a dormered hipped roof. It features a heavy eave cornice, prominent chimney stacks, and projecting facade pavilions. The interior reflects both Colonial Revival and Arts and Crafts influenced in its design and detailing.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]

The Tau Chapter is currently suspended by Lafayette College for a period of five years, but will become officially recognized by the campus again in the Fall of 2018.[3]
