Affordable Housing

Summit Avenue Cooperative is an independent housing cooperative in Madison, WI. As an independent cooperative, we rely on house members for all aspects of house operations, big and small. As a member, you have a direct voice in house decision making. Members also enjoy house dinners served Sunday - Thursday at 6pm, vegetarian option included! We encourage people of all ages, backgrounds, orientations, and beliefs to learn more about our community and apply for membership. Our current member capacity is 17, approximately half male and half female.

Our house is a 1920's mansion at the summit of a hill in a historic residential neighborhood just west of Camp Randall Stadium. We have a large yard with bountiful vegetation and ample off-street parking. Some of our house amenities include hardwood floors, a public computer, functional wood-burning fireplace, cable TV, landline phones, industrial oven & stove, washer & dryer, upright piano, and a large sunroom where guests may stay.
