ICC Austin is a 501c-3 nonprofit organization that operates on a cooperative basis. Our mission is to provide quality, affordable, and healthy cooperative housing for students with financial need.
We welcome all Central Texas students working towards a higher education! This includes students attending UT Austin, Austin Community College, St. Edward’s University, Huston-Tillotson, Texas State, and more.
Incorporated in 1970, with roots dating back to the 1930’s, ICC Austin has a dynamic and rich history. Past members worked hard to build the organization we have now and we continue to cooperate on behalf of our future members. Thousands of students have experienced this unique housing opportunity and we welcome our future generations!
The purpose of ICC Austin, a Texas non-profit corporation, is to create a mutually beneficial, diverse and inclusive community so as to promote the transformation of society towards cooperation, justice and non-exploitation. To achieve this vision, ICC Austin provides affordable housing to students, primarily those who might otherwise be unable to secure a higher education, on a cooperative basis, in an environment that enhances member education, encourages the formation of long lasting communities, and foster responsible citizenship.
