Co-op Details

395 Huron Street
Toronto, ON M5S 2G5
Basic Info:

Our organization was formed in 1936 by a group of enthusiastic Christian socialists after attending a lecture by co-operative educator and advocate Toyohiko Kagawa. We expanded rapidly to 15 houses in the 40s, and again to approximately 30 in the 1960s.

Campus Co-op provides a home within a diverse and vibrant community of fellow co-operative members. We offer affordable rooms in conveniently located Victorian homes that are safe and well maintained. Campus Co-op offers a supported personal growth experience as our young adult members transition from dependence to independence. Support is through our home environment, interaction with a diverse group of peers, flexible membership terms, meal plans, provision of supplies, and maintenance services. Campus Co-op’s members contribute to running our dynamic housing co-operative and thereby hone life skills, apply learning and gain experience valuable for future careers.

Mission Statement:

Maintain a vibrant and diverse co-operative student community in which members live affordably, learn, experience personal growth, build relationships, and contribute to the co-operative.
