Co-op housing is member-controlled housing. Residents who live at a Riverton co-op are members, not “tenants”. Every year each building’s membership elects a board of directors that governs the co-op. The board makes decisions regarding budget planning and building improvements in addition to planning social and cultural events for co-op members. Riverton co-ops empower students by giving them control over their living situation and enabling them to take on leadership roles in their building. Nobody is forced to, but everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate!
In addition to empowering students with this unique and exciting brand of housing, the “operate-at-cost” co-op business model also means that rent prices are usually well below those of other area apartment complexes.
Riverton Community Housing, as the management company, works directly which each building’s board of directors to make sure the needs of the co-op and its members are met.

Note: we do NOT apply an upcharge to your rent for two people living in studios and one-bedrooms or three/four people living in two-bedrooms.
