MSU Student Housing Cooperative

The MSU Student Housing Cooperative (MSU SHC) is a non-profit, autonomous organization providing an affordable off-campus housing option to students and the Greater Lansing community. There are more than 240 members in our 17 houses. Houses vary from 5 to 29 members, each with their own character and history. Our name honors our historical affiliation with Michigan State University, where we remain a registered student organization. However, we operate independently from the university with additional requirements and guidelines for membership.

Wanna live here from August 2020-August 2021? Apply now. Room Availability has been posted for next year!

House of Apollo is a co-op that welcomes people of all walks of life! Apollo’s interests and activities are extremely diverse, ranging from gaming, theater, and politics, to art, camping, and music. Some things that make us unique are our 5 home-cooked meals a week, the parking money we make on football game days, and our newly renovated kitchen. We like to study, watch movies, and play games on weeknights and go out  together on the weekends. We are a group of people that feels like a family!

The house at 236 Harrison was purchased in 2005 following the sale of the Atlantis Co-op on Bogue Street.  Atlantis had been sold in anticipation of the City of East Lansing’s plan to exercise eminent domain for the Cedar Village area development project. 

The new group of members, some of them transplants from Atlantis and other co-op houses, named the house Avalon.
In the Fall of 2012, the house was completely recolonized. The new members decided to rename the house, "House of Apollo," in honor of the Apollo missions.
