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.

Wanna live here from August 2020-August 2021? Apply now. Room Availability has been posted for next year!

I live in a house now that got hit with a large deficit. I also lived in the house last year, but I can’t pay it all this month. What happens?

The SHC has a policy for late fines with any balance over $100. This late fee can be waived for up to 3 months, but the house deficit must be over $150/person and you must bring it to the Corporate Treasurer to approve. This works like a payment plan for the deficit. 

In summary, the SHC bad debt policy still applies to any balance on your account outside of the specific approved deficit of $150. 

*Please discuss circumstances with your house and/or house treasurer if you wish, but we want to maintain individual accountability.
