We want sustainable, affordable and community-led homes. Owned by students. Built for Manchester.

A co-operative will fundamentally undercut market rent by operating without a profit model. Instead of lining landlord’s pockets, we create a means for our own economic empowerment.
We own the space so we decide what happens to it. When tenants are landlords, living conditions improve.
Increasingly inflated costs of living and a lack of long-term networks established through community engagement creates an extractive model of education that we want to combat.
With autonomy over our own space, we are able to live according to more sustainable principles. Our homes will be low impact and energy efficient and our members can grow their own food.
Students from disadvantaged socio-economic backgrounds are routinely excluded. Racial providing, sexism and discrimination still run rife on our campuses. Co-operative housing with a strong inclusive ethos has proven to provide those safe spaces that we sorely need.
Freed up from economic worries, students can collect and organise for the causes they care about. We want to create a space that invites communities in and actively engage in outreach across the city, proving that students and locals can live and work harmoniously.
Housing can empower people to not only live, but learn and create something beautiful in the process. Being our own landlords comes with its own opportunities for learning new skills and developing confidence.
