Student housing cooperatives offer an escape from a housing market monopolised by exploitative landlords and poorly maintained, overpriced student homes. A housing co-op celebrates people over profit.
Joining a housing coop means you become your own landlord. Each co-operative members’ rent is at or below market rent and goes towards paying the mortgage and maintaining the building.
Members have the chance to learn new skills and live in a supportive community.
As the property is owned and managed by its members, everyone has a vested interest and stake in how it’s run.
