The Co-op offers students a chance to be part of a close-knit community with required service hours that allow residents to lower their college housing expenses. Students will meet the service hour requirement through involvement in community committees and through attending events on campus. Each student is expected to complete 50 hours of service per semester (about 3 hours per week) in exchange for a room rate reduction. The room rate for these rooms is 55% the cost of a double or single room in the same building. Please note: The amount of the room reduction will be reported for tax purposes.
