live at Houseasaurus 2023-24
We are looking for a few new members to live in the Co-op this next year! Leases start in mid August. Fill out an application at https://houseasaurus.wordpress.com/apply/ and visit http://www.houseasaurus.org/ or email with any questions!
Once you apply, we'll reach out to you. The photos in this post are of common areas in the house. There are eight bedrooms total; some of us will be returning members, and some rooms will be open for new members come August. Room prices vary based on size, from $400-$670. We have lots of garden beds in our back and side yard, as well as a fire pit and a second floor balcony.
Here is a little about us:
Houseasaurus Co-op is an intentional democratically-governed community living space with core house values that include egalitarianism, diversity, queer positivity, social responsibility, and environmental sustainability. We have operated at the center of alternative living and social change in State College for over 12 years, housed over 100 people and impacted countless more community members. We aim to be at the heart of the progressive community in State College and to create an open and welcoming space for students and locals to engage in artistic expression, sustainable food systems, and social justice initiatives.
We share meals and host community dinners and events. We value spending time together. We invest in one another’s lives and help each other to grow as individuals and as members of our communities. It’s not always easy — it requires personal investment and commitment. But we believe that learning from living together is what changes the world.
We recently switched properties to 527 W Beaver Ave in August 2017, and are in the process of building up a sustainable community. If you want to be part of a non-hegemonic, safe place to grow, apply to become a member of the co-op today!
