Student Co-op Homes

Existing student housing co-ops across the UK have come together to form Student Co-op Homes, with the support of The Phone Co-op Foundation for Co-operative Innovation and Co-operatives UK.

Student Co-op Homes is a national co-operative established to promote, enable and scale-up the student housing co-op movement in the UK. Its main function is to acquire property to lease to their member co-ops. It also supports new and established student housing co-ops with training and advice on how to set up and manage their co-op. Its membership is made up of student housing co-op groups and supporters.

Who benefits

Student Co-op Homes - Who Benefits

The housing system in the UK is not designed to enable people to make good homes that they can afford. Housing in the UK is a financial tool that owners use to exploit residents for financial gain. This system of housing contributes directly to student poverty; in response to this crisis situation, students are taking control of their housing with the power of co-operation.
