We provide quality, affordable, and healthy cooperative housing for students with financial need.
Who we are & what we do
ICC Austin provides affordable, all-inclusive housing that is centered around our values of community, equity, and cooperation. We believe in working collaboratively and collectively to foster environments where our members can thrive as students, as people, and as a community.
Through a unique combination of group living and cooperative mentorship, our members learn to democratically manage their home and build healthy, inclusive communities that support and encourage diversity. We provide regular trainings and leadership opportunities in areas such as conflict resolution, racial equity, collective care, and more!
We actively strive to build an environment where everyone of any race, ethnicity, class, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, weight, height, accessibility needs, or country of origin feels welcomed and seen.
We actively and intentionally work to challenge and disrupt existing power inequities and structures – recognizing that they are racially-based.
We believe in the value of working collaboratively and collectively – achieving together what may not be possible alone.
