Looking for a low-cost housing alternative? Have you ever considered cooperative living? The Harriet E. Richards House may be just the place for you! The mission of the Harriet E. Richards Cooperative House is to provide alternative, off-campus housing to female undergraduate students dependent on financial aid at Boston University. By drastically reducing the cost of room and board, the HER House gives its members the ability to afford their tuition, lifting a burden that all too often prevents bright young women from receiving an education. Providing low-cost housing options for higher education is not an entirely new concept. However, what is unique about the HER House is a commitment to cooperative living and fostering a close community of women guided by selflessness, consideration, respect, understanding for others and pride in the House. Stop by 191 Bay State Road any time from noon until 5 PM on Friday, November 15 to ask questions and tour the house. For more information, check out Harriet E. Richards (HER) House at Boston University on Facebook or http://www.her-house.org/ If you would like to see if you are eligible to live in the HER House or would like a copy of the application, please send your name, BU ID, email address, and school year to her.cooperative@gmail.com
