Welcome to Cooperative Housing!
On this page you will find information regarding the recruitment process for the Purdue Cooperative Housing community. Formal and informal recruitment rounds take place in the beginning of the Spring semester. This process is open to both incoming and current Purdue students. For more information throughout the academic year come to any of the call-out meetings hosted by the Purdue Cooperative Council where you will be able to learn more about the individual houses and how the recruitment process works. If you have questions about women's houses contact the Vice President of Women's Recruitment here. If you have questions about men's houses contact the Vice President of Men's Recruitment here.
Cooperative housing recruitment will take place early in the spring semester. Students (current Purdue students or incoming freshmen) will be able to choose between January 23rd or 30th for their formal recruitment date. During formal recruitment, students will have the opportunity to meet all of the houses and get to know some of the members. Women will participate in interviews while they visit each of the seven houses. Men will visit all five men's houses and then select which houses they would like to interview with after the tours.
Informal recruitment takes place following formal recruitment. Potential members will be invited back to meet members in a more casual setting. This is a time to ask any questions that you may still have, and it is also a great time to learn more the culture of the houses and assess which ones would be a good fit for you. After you have visited all of the houses you chose to visit during informal recruitment, you will rank those houses based on your preference.
