If you desire community as much as a roof over your head, then River City Housing Collective might be the right fit for you! RCHC is a cooperative alternative to the traditional landlord-tenant relationship, and we've been providing affordable housing to Iowa City since 1977. RCHC currently owns three historic homes, totaling 36 rooms, near downtown IC. We're a member-directed non-profit dedicated to providing quality, affordable housing for community members and students.

We are our own landlords, so our houses are managed and operated through the collective efforts of our members. Shared responsibility for cooking, cleaning, maintenance, and administrative tasks allows RCHC to continue to grow in its mission of sustaining a healthy physical and social environment for all of its members.

Rent and utilities for this attic room at Anomy House is $377/mo. Utilities are included in the rent cost and cover all basic amenities as well as Wi-Fi. All of our houses have curbside recycling, onsite compost, and free laundry. Anomy is also conveniently located just off of College Green park, a walkable distance to downtown and the University of Iowa campus.

You'll have a private room that is your personal sanctuary, but community is built and sustained through everyday interactions, so you'll share a kitchen, dining room, living room and other facilities with your housemates.

Living cooperatively means sharing resources as well, so all members participate in a food plan, where they purchase food collectively and cook dinner for their House twice a month. To that end, members pay a monthly house fee that covers the cost of bulk food purchasing and weekly grocery shopping as well as various other household staples like toilet paper, laundry detergent, and cleaning supplies.

And we're pet-friendly!

To apply, you can fill out the online prospective member request form at our website, and a membership committee rep. will be in touch: https://sites.google.com/site/rivercityhousingcollective/apply

River City Housing Collective and all associated properties and events are intended as safe spaces for all people.
