A Brief History of Steiner House

    Student co-operative housing in Cleveland was born of adversity in 1936 during the Great Depression,
organized by then graduate student Oscar Steiner (who later became a successful Cleveland
industrialist) and others. After WWII, members moved out of several dispersed, smaller residences into
a large house on Cornell Avenue near Case University. They named it Roosevelt House, and in 1945
incorporated and bought the property. In 1971 they swapped that building for a larger house at 11408
Bellflower Road, in University Circle. Steiner House provides full room and board to 21 graduate-
student co-opers, and is currently the only residence hall operated by the Cleveland Student Housing
Association, Inc. (CSHA)
