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.

Zolton Ferency runs on intersectional feminism. We welcome diverse backgrounds, experiences, and are femme/queer friendly. We strive to fight the badisms and operate as an intentionally anti-oppressive house by not allowing sexism, racism, transphobia, classism, homophobia, etc. Boundaries matter and we require consent. Our house values spending quality time with each other and ensuring a safe (but fun) space for all.

The house at 146 Collingwood was built in the 1930s and purchased to be part of Hedrick in 1964. Before the co-ops were co-ed, the women of Hedrick lived here, while the men were next door. Part of SHC's HUD loan provided money for renovations in 1980. In 1986, during an infamous retreat to Key Largo, Florida, board members decided to split Hedrick into two co-ops, and the 146 and 152 Collingwood were named Key Largo as a reminder. 152 Collingwood later became Miles Co-op, and Key Largo was recently re named Ferency in memory of Zolton Ferency, a popular professor, perennial political candidate, and long-time friend to the co-ops.
