Campus Residence Co-operative Association
Living in the Lower Mainland can be challenging. Finding a nice place near transit that charges reasonable rent is a rare event. Luckily for the members of the Campus Residence Co-operative Association, we have such a place to call home. Our Co-op is a community of professionals, students and retirees who share dinners, socialize, and work together to create a comfortable home in two neighbouring houses that are both 100+ years old.
Members have their own bedrooms (most with sinks in them) and we share a large kitchen, dining room, living room, library, TV room, storage, laundry, food pantry, several bathrooms, a front yard, back patio (with BBQ), gardens, and free parking behind the houses.
The oldest housing co-operative in BC (as far as we know), the CRCA was founded in 1967 in the heart of New Westminster, British Columbia. It started primarily as a student residence and has evolved over the years to include members from diverse backgrounds.
Members generally live here for 2-10 years (or more!) but we do have rooms that become available when life circumstances compel members to move elsewhere (generally to get married, have babies, or work/go to school in other cities). If a room is not currently available, you can apply to get on the waiting list.
