A woman claims she was sexually assaulted at a University of Texas at Arlington fraternity house.

According to the campus newspaper, the alleged incident happened around 1 a.m. Sunday. The woman said a male student assaulted her at the Kappa Sigma House. She reported it to police later in the day.

"The University of Texas at Arlington Police Department is investigating an allegation of sexual assault reported Sunday afternoon by a female student involving a male student who is a known acquaintance," UTA confirmed in a statement. 

The university said the woman originally reported the incident to the Arlington Police Department. Campus police have taken over the investigation since the alleged incident happened on campus.

Earlier this month, UTA President Vistasp Karbhari suspended all fraternity and sorority social activities because of an ongoing problem with allegations of drinking, hazing and sexual assaults.

A spokesman for the school said the decision was made due to concerns about the culture of the fraternal community, both at the university and nationally.

UTA planned to have a task force review campus Greek life and recommend steps to bring about a positive shift in the community’s culture.

During the suspension, certain events were still allowed such as meetings or community service projects.

Sunday's alleged sexual assault is still under investigation.
