Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Berkeley Student Cooperative records include meeting minutes, correspondence, legal documents, financial information, flyers, promotional materials, lists of house members, and lists of central level boarders. Other materials include photographs, files and correspondence related to reunions of former residents, and other records that document Sheridan Hall, which was part of the first student housing cooperative in Berkeley, from 1934 to 1943.
The Berkeley Student Cooperative is a 501(c)3 nonprofit housing cooperative that provides affordable housing and board to students at UC Berkeley and other Bay Area colleges and universities. Their mission is to provide a quality, low-cost, cooperative housing community to university students, thereby providing an educational opportunity for students who might not otherwise be able to afford a university education.
