Cooperatives are small, student-operated living communities which are self-reliant, giving their residents the opportunity to manage the health and welfare of the community while nurturing responsibility and sustainable living.

The Tri-Cooperatives are one community, comprised of three craftsman-style houses on campus that place emphasis on low-impact living. Approximately ten to twelve residents occupy each house. The Tri-Coops give students the opportunity to experience communal living, gardening, and consensus based decision making. The Tri-Coop community as a whole emphasizes community, cooperation, and responsibility.

The Tri-Coops include Davis Student Co-op (also known as DSC), Pierce Coop, and Agrarian Effort (also known as Ag). When applying to the Tri-Cooperatives, you can request a certain house, however house assignment is based on availability.
