The Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity House, at 205 University Terrace in Reno, Nevada, is a Colonial Revival building that was built in 1929. Also known as ATO House, the building is on a hill overlooking University Terrace Avenue in Reno's West University neighborhood, amongst other fraternities and sororities. It was a work of ATO member and Reno architect Lehman "Monk" Ferris. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.[1]

Its NRHP nomination asserted it was significant "as the first fraternity-built house in Nevada", as an "outstanding" example of Colonial Revival architecture, and for its association with the social history of University of Nevada-associated fraternities and with prominent men throughout the state who once lived there.[2]
