CHI’s Member Forum, Student Housing Cooperative of Europe Webinar, and Call for Nominations for New CHI Board Members


May 2022 Member Forum – May 11 @ 9 am EDT (15:00 CET)

CHI will be hosting our annual Member Forum in May! Here is the agenda:


• 2021 report
• MOBA Housing Share Offer (Bea Varnai & Marc Neelen)
• Cooperative Housing Study Tour in Latin America (Jennifer Duyne Barenstein)




Student Housing Cooperatives of Europe – Is it Time to Unite?! – May 19 @ 10 am EDT (16:00 CET)

This session will explore the benefits of European student housing cooperatives coming together under one umbrella organization. Federating will provide the opportunity for student housing coops to network and cooperate with one another to further their goals of providing values-based housing to students. Building an association will also help to develop the potential for student housing cooperatives located in Europe through knowledge exchanges and networking opportunities. These often lead to meaningful partnerships, increased capacity, and improved services. Why operate in a vacuum when you can come together to discuss solutions to common problems? Uniting under one body also ensures your collective voices are stronger together.

Our international panel:

Jens-Uwe Koehler – Studentendorf, Berlin

Scott Jennings – Student Cooperatives Homes UK

Bronwyn Walls – North American Students for Cooperation (NASCO)

Lorenzo Novaro  Cooperatives Europe

May 19- 10 am EDT, 16:00 CET
