We are a group of university students setting up the first student housing co-op in Glasgow. We were formed in November 2016, and we are in the process of securing funding and a building. We welcome students who are at university, college and in apprenticeships.
We believe that a housing co-op is an effective way to combat increasing rent prices, and provide a democratically controlled living environment. Collectively, members of a co-op take on the role of landlord and have a direct say in their living conditions.
