Cooperative, affordable, and environmentally sustainable housing for students!

The Students’ Cooperative Association (S.C.A) is a non-profit housing cooperative in Eugene, Oregon, owned and operated by its members! The S.C.A has three houses located on Alder street across from the University of Oregon campus. We welcome students from all walks of life attending an institution of higher learning in Lane County, trade or vocational programs, or any other local accredited college.

Why Choose The S.C.A?

Our amazing members share house responsibilities, prepare local, organic, and sustainable meals daily, help each other, and make decisions collectively using consensus. We value clear and direct communication, respect, and cooperation. The co-ops provide a fun, engaging, safe, and inclusive living environment.

Janet Smith

The JS is a beautiful house and the oldest structure in the SCA. Most rooms are singles, but all the housemates like to get together in the common rooms. Janet Smithers like to host movie nights in their attic theater and hang out in the garden in between grading papers and getting to class.

The Campbell Club

The Campbell Club is the oldest co-op in the SCA! Its roots come from DIY culture, activism and preserving artistic spaces. The house allows meat and always serves a vegan option at meals. The Campbell Club and the Lorax are right next door to each other and co-opers from both houses love to spend time on the CC’s Fro-Po (front porch). 

Lorax Manner

Do you speak for the trees? The members of the Lorax Manner do! The Lorax was founded with sustainability in mind. It is a vegan house with vegetarian cooking allowed. No meat is prepared in house, though carnivores can cook their meat next door at the Campbell Club.
