The application deadline is 14/01/18 After receiving applications we will arrange interview dates. A new co-op member will be selected upon housing need but, just as importantly, upon some of who we feel would be most suitable to the well being of the co-op.
We cannot accept applications from students. If you have already interviewed in the past; please alert us to your interest but do not re-fill an application form. We’re looking for people who are looking to stay in the co-op for the long term and who will invest time and effort in ensuring the well-being of the co-op over a long period of time and for future tenants, so please do not apply if you see this as a mere transition.
