Fraternity members at the house heard her screaming, tackled the man and held him down until police arrived.
Troy Deshane Watson, 34, was charged with assault on a female, communicating threats, kidnapping and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The woman, who was not identified, suffered bruising but was otherwise unharmed physically, police said.
