A housing co-op is a voluntary organisation of ordinary people managing the housing they live in, based on principles of self-organisation and mutual support
The Co-operative has eight shared houses, each with ten single-person bedrooms*. We're sorry but we can only accept applications for single rooms in these houses and you must be the ONLY occupant (sorry no pets!). This means you will be living in a single occupancy room in a shared house with nine other single house-mates who have a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures, ages and gender.
Your room will measure about 4m x 5m (ceiling height is approx. 2.42m) and is unfurnished, but includes a vanity unit, laminate flooring and double glazed windows. The rooms are small so if your belongings will not fit in your room, you'll need to make alternative arrangements for them as storage space is strictly limited and communal areas cannot be used for personal storage.
Each shared house backs onto a large enclosed communal garden and has three floors with a shower and toilet on each, except on the first floor which has a bath. The shared kitchen has two cookers, two sinks, two fridge freezers and cupboards for food storage. All the houses have washing machines and some have microwaves. There is also a furnished communal residents' lounge.
*Some properties have restricted access so please talk to us if you need more information.
Below you will see examples of empty rooms available to let, followed by some pictures of actual rooms which residents have made into their own cosy homes.
If you can answer "YES" to all of the above we'd be delighted to receive an application for housing from you!
