MSU Student Housing Cooperative

The Michigan State University Student Housing Cooperative (MSU SHC) is a non-profit organization providing a low-cost housing option for students at MSU and surrounding schools. There are more than 200 members in 15 houses across the East Lansing area. Houses vary from five to 29 members, each with their own character and history.

Forms and Documents

  1. The Event Proposition Form is for proposing events and notifying the Membership Committee of events you're already putting on!

  2. The House Treasurer's Reconciliation Form.
  3. The Check Request Form. Checks are cut on Wednesday mornings, and check requests have to be turned in by 5:00 on Tuesday in order for them to be processed.

  4. The Share Returns Form should be filled out by any member departing the Cooperative system. The purpose of this form is to give the Cooperative a bit of feedback about their experience, as well as give an address to which Shares can be mailed once the Financial Audit of the House's budget is finished. Typically members will return their share the winter after their contract period ends.

  5. The Check-Out Form must be signed by your house's Maintenance Officer if you are planning to move out. Otherwise, your shares will not be processed and you may be subject to a cleaning fee. If you have already departed, please fill out the form and return the form to our office for processing.

  6. The Release Request Form for departing the SHC early. This must be turned in to the office before a replacement can sign a contract.

  7. The Late Fee Waiver Form. Late Fees are income for the House, and the House needs to approve removal of fines. Your treasurer's signature is required to confirm that the house agrees to waive the fine.

If you can't find it here, you can find it at the SHC office!
