Are you interested in a flexible living situation, gardening, good food, and community involvement? Do you also like working with other people to create an efficient, supportive and low cost-of-living environment? A co-op may be a good fit for you! :)

This house--Brooks House--is a 14-bedroom, 5-bathroom house in Urbana. We are an established coop house, and we are looking for a few more people to round out our community. We are also in community with other local coops Harvest House and Randolph House.

Membership is open to anyone! We especially encourage people who are looking for a longer-term community experience to apply. Rooms are available now (May 2024), as well as for this summer and the upcoming Fall.

SEE OUR WEBSITE FOR MORE INFORMATION AND TO APPLY: http://couchcooperative.org/

Or email with specific questions!

Other perks include:

- room rent ranges from low 400s to mid 500s

- food is $145, and utilities are around $60 to $80 (prorated if you go out of town) (covers supplies for all meals, including 5 housemate-cooked dinners a week)

- parking available

- furnished bedrooms and common areas

- walking distance from Downtown Urbana and from campus

- very close to bus lines, with a Green line stop right across from the house

- on-site laundry

- garden space

- front porch

- vegetarian/vegan friendly

- Large kitchen

- LGBTQ+ friendly

- composting

- meals ~5 days a week

Co-ops have all the perks of home ownership (you can paint your room! you can build a shelf!), but without the financial liability. In exchange, housemates work together to manage house finances, shopping, cooking, and general upkeep of the house. Members sign up to cook dinner for each other 5 nights a week, and work together to clean the house on a weekly basis. Expected time contribution is 5 hours a week, including cooking, cleaning, and a house meeting. Scheduling is flexible but we do expect you to work with us and communicate directly so we can keep the house clean, safe and meet everyone's needs!

This house is managed by COUCH (https://couchcooperative.org/), a local member-run cooperative nonprofit providing affordable, accessible housing to the residents of Champaign-Urbana. As a resident, you would have the opportunity to join the COUCH board, help manage leases and other legal responsibilities, and support the houses by organizing training and social events.
