A housing co-op is a voluntary organisation of ordinary people managing the housing they live in, based on principles of self-organisation and mutual support.

The Co-operative has eight shared houses, each with ten single-person bedrooms

We can only accept applications for single rooms in these houses and you must be the only occupant (sorry no pets!).

This means you will be living in a single occupancy room in a shared house with nine other single housemates who have a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures, ages and gender.

Your room will measure approximately 3m X 3m (ceiling height is approx. 2.42m) and is unfurnished, but includes a vanity unit, laminate flooring and double glazed windows.

The rooms are small so if your belongings will not fit in your room, you'll need to make alternative arrangements for them as storage space is strictly limited and communal areas cannot be used for personal storage.

Each shared house backs onto a large enclosed communal garden and has three floors with a shower and toilet on each, except on the first floor which has a bath.

The shared kitchen has two cookers, two sinks, two fridge freezers and cupboards for food storage. All the houses have washing machines.

Some properties have restricted access so please talk to us if you need more information.

The rent is approx. £90 per week which includes all rent, service charge, council tax, utilities (gas, electricity and water) as well as wifi.

So are you...?

  • Looking for housing 
  • Single with no pets
  • Over 18 years of age
  • A permanent resident in the UK with a British/EU passport or indefinite leave to remain. (Note: that limited leave to remain is unfortunately not sufficient)
  • Someone who believes in the ethos of cooperative and community housing
  • Someone who is able to compromise and communicate well with others
  • Prepared to volunteer in helping to run the cooperative. This could mean working on one of the different committees, being a house rep, helping with grounds clear-ups, interviewing prospective members, or helping with IT or our website. There's always work that needs doing.

    If you can answer "YES" to all of the above we'd be delighted to receive an application for housing from you! 

Applications are currently closed to get the waiting list to a manageable length.
