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.

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)
