Steiner House Co-op

Est. 1971

(formerly Roosevelt House/Mayer House 1936-1971)

Who Can Join?

  •  Residence in our Co-op is open to any person in pursuit of a full-time, accredited, post-baccalaureate degree, internship, or job training program. 
  • Our Residents attend the Cleveland Institute of Art, the Cleveland Institute of Music, Case-Western Reserve University, John Carroll University, Cleveland State University, University Hospitals, and Cleveland Clinic, among other institutions. 
  • We are pursuing PhD, MD, LLD, and Master’s degrees in a variety of fields including, but not limited to: music performance and art, law, business, nursing, dentistry, engineering, mathematics, medicine, political science, computer science, public health, social work, and bio-ethics. 
  • At any given time, as many as eight to twelve different nationalities may be represented among the 21 residents living in the house. 
  • Residents have ranged in age from 20 to more than 50 years old.
  • It has been said that CSHA shows no bias in admissions and is an “equal opportunity” rejecter! House residents maintain diversity, but not by any arbitrary quota system. Members must reach a collective agreement about whether each new applicant will (or will not!) “…contribute to the diversity of the existing membership, rather than promote homogeneity,” as the by-laws require.
