How do I join the SHC?
The MSU Student Housing Cooperative has a dual-approval process. First, you get approved by the Co-op via our application. After you hear back, you’ll then move onto getting approved by the particular Co-op you’re interested in by contacting Membership Officer and scheduling a tour meeting and/or meal.
Our application can be found here. You'll get a reply from us within 3 business days of applying.
After you’re provisionally approved by the Co-op, you’ll receive your welcome letter email. Then, you:
Get a tour of the house(s) you like by contacting the membership officer listed on the house page
Attend a house dinner to meet your potential future housemates
Attend a house meeting to understand facilitation and function within the house
Be accepted by the Co-op Houses that you like the best
Once the Membership Officer submits a tour card of approval, you then contact the Office to schedule a Contract Signing Appointment and then sign your contract at the MSU SHC office. You’ll pay Shares and Dues of $505.00 upon signing a Contract.
Then you are a part of our community!
