Laurel House has re-opened as part of the new five-story Super Co-op! We occupy the first two floors of the building on the courtyard level. Laurel is located on the corner of Nueces and MLK, within walking distance of UT and in the heart of West Campus.

The house is home to mostly graduate and upper-division students. Laurel members love spending time and going out together- to dinner, the gym, the movies, pub trivia and downtown dancing, as well as participating in house activities such as parties, educational and social events, and movie nights. The house is a great place to make friends, meet people and find fun things to do especially for those who are new to Austin.

Our cooperative is student-run with members doing approximately 4 hours of weekly labor, such as cooking and cleaning. This makes it possible for members to get more for their monthly rent`all-inclusive utilities, access to the Pearl pool and Taos sundeck, use of the house computers and printer, and 17 meals per week included. The house is run by member-elected officers and direct democratic member participation, which takes place at our weekly member meetings.

As part of the Laurel House community, members hang out in the Laurel Lounge, cook in the fully-equipped and stocked kitchen, and work in the study and computer rooms. Laurel also has two TV rooms with an extensive movie and TV library, as well as an exercise room to help keep our members fit. The excellent in-house meals prepared daily by Laurel`s chefs make regular exercise a must. Some rooms have private bathrooms, while others share a bathroom with the adjoining room. Laundry facilities are located on site.

Laurel provides a mature atmosphere with many opportunities to put the books aside and have fun with your fellow co-opers. We are looking for active, social members who want to participate in our community.

Apply to live in Laurel House today! We encourage you to visit us during dinner (6pm sharp weekdays & Sunday). To ask questions or schedule a tour, please contact us today.
