The Peterborough Student Co-operative


The Peterborough Student Co-operative is an organization dedicated to the establishment of a co-operative-based student and community residence in downtown Peterborough. Our mandate is to provide students with an affordable, safe and supportive housing community that blends academic and extra-curricular learning with resources, programming and support so that students can get the absolute most out of their experience living downtown.

Our organization is governed by internationally accepted co-operative principles and, since our inception in 2009, has steadily grown to include more than one hundred members representing the diverse constituencies of the Peterborough community: students, university staff, alumni, faculty and members of the downtown community. In that time we have also received the overwhelming support of the student population at Trent through a successful referendum question and have partnered with established community organizations, many of whom continue to assist us today as we work towards realizing our goals.

A co-operative-based residential community in downtown Peterborough will foster an environment where students can live independently, safely and affordably while at the same time taking advantage of the many unique and exciting opportunities that only student run co-operative residence communities can offer.

Saying goodbye... 

The Peterborough Student Co-operative would like to give a warm acknowledgment to our out-going coordinator Meghan Johnny. Throughout her contract, Meghan put the wheels in motion for PSC to embark on our first journey in purchasing, creating and running a student housing co-operative. Thank you for all the time, energy and dedication you showed our little organization throughout the duration of your time with us. The team here at PSC will miss you, and wishes you the best of luck in all your future ventures!

...And saying Hello

… and a warm welcome to the in-coming coordinator, Jelena Avramovic! We are excited for what this year has in store for PSC, and are thrilled to have Jelena on board to help make the magic happen. We are in no doubt that Jelena's previous experience working in the non-profit sector, and her passion to help create change for her community will be of great service to PSC's journey in pursuing our first ever student co-operative!
