About Us

We are always looking to meet potential new members for both houses! If you are interested in applying, please do so here.

Nickel City Housing Cooperative was founded in 2001 with the mission of fixing up vacant properties in Buffalo to provide affordable and cooperative housing. We are all members of North American Students of Cooperation (NASCO) and our homes are leased to us by NASCO Properties, making us unique here in Buffalo because we have the support and assistance from a national network of housing co-ops.

Nickel City consists of two co-op houses:
