Osterweil Co-op is a member of the ICC. It is geared at providing affordable housing to students who attend colleges and universities in the area.
We are primarily a vegetarian house though we do serve meat and non-veggie dishes. Meals are made by the members five nights a week.
Members share rooms with like-sexed members. We have five double rooms and three singles. Rooms are distributed on a seniority list determined by the number of semesters a person has lived in Osterweil.
The Osterweil house is a quaint, three-story brick-and-stucco building that dates back to post-World War II. It is located only two minutes from the University of Michigan.
Members are expected to give five or six hours of their time a week back to the house in the form of officer positions and other house works.
