This is just the first part of the application process. In addition to filling out this application, we also ask that you:
- Attend two potlucks dinners (preferably one at each house).
- Attend a house meeting prior to the one you get voted on at, so as to understand the way the houses are run.
- Try to meet everyone at the house you’re applying to. These might be your future housemates and friends, and it’s a good idea to try to get to know them first.
Please complete this application honestly and thoroughly. Make it interesting! Your application will be read by all the current co-op members. We know that you’re more complex than words on a page, but try to give us a sense of who you are.
The houses vote on the prospective members that are ready to be voted on first. Because you filled out an application before someone else does not mean you will be voted on before them; whomever finishes the whole membership application process first will get voted on first.
We will not discriminate based on age, race, creed, color, national origin, sex, marital status, familial status, occupation, income, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.
Please also read the Membership FAQ for further information on our housing coop.
Please note that fields marked with a * are required.
The next step…
…is to come to dinner! We ask for two dinners and a meeting as a minimum chance to get to know you in person. At the meeting we will conduct the second half of the application process, which will involve some more conversational questions about things like conflict resolution, diversity, cooking and cleaning, and your interests or skills. We’ll also have time to discuss any questions that you have about the co-op.
