Welcome to the Oberlin Student Cooperative Association!

The Oberlin Student Cooperative Association is a student-run, non-profit corporation that feeds nearly one-quarter of Oberlin’s student body. Our co-ops provide at-cost housing and dining to members, and works to provide inexpensive, healthy, tasty, and environmentally-wise meals. Our organization aims to buy food based on principles of accessibility, sustainability, and supporting fair labor practices. Our co-ops and the wider organization engages in decision-making through modified consensus, and OSCA is one of the largest cooperatives in North America.
