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. 

Find us on Facebook and Twitter!

If you are interested in our houses, please fill out an application to join our organization!

Please Note : We are currently operating on a Wait List basis for ALL SPACES AVAILABLE FOR 17/18. 

If you're interested in a space in our Cooperatives for 17/18, fill out this form to join the Wait List. Only ACCEPTED APPLICANTS who receive a Welcome Letter email will be added to the Wait List for 17/18. Please apply and be accepted before adding yourself to the Wait List.

Here's how the Wait List works for 17/18:

1. Apply via our Cooperative's webpage here. Wait 3 business days for a response to give us time to screen your application. Applying is free.

2. If you're accepted, you'll receive a Welcome Letter that will further explain how to join the Co-op.

3. Tour the houses that you wish to be on a Wait List for : each house has a separate Wait List.

4. Get approved at the house you want to be on a Wait List for by attending a meeting and meal.

5. After having your tour card turned in, notify the Membership Officer or Member Services Coordinator letting them know you'd like to be on the Wait List for that particular house. At that time, we'll let you know the status of your place on the Wait List and what to expect.
