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.

Next door neighbors of Vesta and Orion Houses, the location and history of Beal House as a cooperative made it worth saving. The SHC acted quickly.

Unfortunately, the property was purchased in very poor condition and required extensive renovations during the summer of 2009.  A hefty summer work load and lots of member labor contributions returned Beal to it's former glory. Beal house now boasts restored hardwood floors, energy efficient windows, beautiful bedrooms, new bathrooms, and a large kitchen.
