    Historical Background

    Irvine Students Housing, Inc. (ISHI) was officially incorporated in 1975. It was formed by students at the University of California, Irvine, in an effort to establish cooperative housing as a low cost alternative to existing on-campus housing. Residents conducted their own management, cooking, cleaning and maintenance. The ISHI Co-op, by agreement with the UCI Student Housing office, was housed in a building with ten apartments at the Verano Place housing community on campus. In 2007 ISHI disbanded, the Co-op ceased to operate, and the apartments were made available for standard graduate student housing.
