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.

I've never been audited before. How does it work?

It’s not a personal audit, but as a member of the house, you have an impact on the future of the house when you:

  • turn in receipts on time to your finance officer (so timely information can be shared to see if you’re on track for a deficit or surplus)

  • sign off on your house budget and any adjustments over the semester

  • as a house, contribute to house savings (part of your budget)

  • conserve resources

  • as a house, pay back a previous house surplus to the SHC (who gave it back to previous house members already)
