Please read the following before entering the OSCA wait list sign-up page through the link at the bottom of this page.

The Oberlin Student Cooperative Association (OSCA) includes three housing and dining co-ops, seven dining-only co-ops, and one housing-only co-op. There are both room and board, and board-only options.

Members of Third World and Old Barrows Co-ops are selected entirely by application. Applications will be reviewed by the respective co-op membership committee, and we will contact you when a decision has been reached.

Students who plan to apply for Brown Bag Co-op must have village or town housing status.

Incoming students who are new to Oberlin must submit a new student application form before participating in the new student lottery and/or signing up on the OSCA wait list. For new students, please note that the following co-op options are NOT available for students new to Oberlin: dining-only in Brown Bag, Harkness, Keep and Tank Co-ops.

If you have any questions concerning co-op membership, contact the OSCA office, Wilder 402, x58108, osca@oberlin.edu


 I understand that by completing this application form, I will be assigned to the requested dining only co-op automatically and will be financially responsible for dining in that co-op. OSCA will not ask if I want acceptance into a co-op unless it is a room and board co-op (housing) spot. I understand I will be notified of acceptance into a co-op by OSCA via an e-mail to my Oberlin College e-mail account. I also understand that if I am placed in a co-op and wish to remain there I must remove myself from the wait list using this form. Lastly, I understand that if I wish to be released from my co-op placement, I must fill out the appropriate OSCA paperwork.
