My daughter lived here for a year and I couldn't be happier with her experience. She learned more about herself and the value of community. She also ate great food and made life-long friends!

An amazing community for people interested in leaving the world better off than it was when they inherited it. A must-visit for out-of-towners, and the best place to live for students and young professionals in State College.

It really helped me connect with the greater State College community and introduced me to some really amazing people that have pushed me to do things that I'd never thought I'd do. I cannot recommend it enough.

Living at the co.space was the best decision I made during my time at Penn State. The retreats are invaluable experiences where I learned so much about myself, my goals and my priorities. I formed lifelong friendships while at the house and took advantage of the many opportunities the co.space ecosystem provides to make connections and grow on both a personal and professional basis. Plus, I was able to build a podcast studio in the basement to explore and nurture my growing passion for podcasting. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to find themselves and their community to live at the co.

absolutely breath taking environment. And I am in love with the future goals and ambitions of the flagship project. Christian and Spud are a joy to work with and talk to. I wish this place all the best in the future, I think they have a great thing going here!

Do you want life-long friends from all over the world? Do you enjoy home-cooked meals twice a week (almost) as good as Abuelita would make? Do you want to be invited to numerous weddings in the future that also double as co? space reunions? Is community as important to you as it is to Leslie Knope? If you’ve answered YES to all of the questions above then what are you waiting for? Check out the co. space! I lived here in my Junior year of college and decided to return as a young professional a year later. Co-living taught me so much about myself and so much more on how to be a team player in a professional work setting. If you enjoy trying new things and challenging yourself, I highly recommend either living or visiting the co. space.

I spent the best US summers here! Hailing all the way from South Africa for a three-month research visit at Penn State University, knowing only my co-advisor (who btw recommended the place!) I was both excited and nervous as I didn't know how well my presence would be received. I immediately felt at home. My then housemates made me feel welcomed, and just by luck or divine intervention, I arrived on Sunday - a day when all housemates gather for dinner in the evening cooked by fellow colivers. The summer team-building camp weekend was awesome too! I got to know my roommate as we shared a room at the campsite too? To this day, I'm still implementing some of the lessons I learned from the activities we did on that weekend. The best part of the team building weekend was when we set around a camp fire and had s'mores! A first and memorable time for me. This is a place for change-makers; these are not just words but ethos colivers live by. So, joining this movement - I call it that because of the transformative impact staying at the space has had in my life - is one of the best decisions you can make for yourself. And the friendships forged in that space lasts a lifetime.

My time at the co.space was life-changing. I was a part of the first cohort and the people I lived with are some of my closest friends to this day, 5 years after living there. Cannot recommend enough!

A fantastic alternative and clear stand-out from every other cooperative living situation (Greek life included) in State College. The culture is open, dynamic and novel while affording the kind of space, comfort and privacy that are all but impossible to attain in other cooperative living arrangements. Would recommend to anyone who is an entrepreneur, changemaker, or looking to become a leader in their community.

I lived here for just a year, but I made some life long friends--many of whom I'm still close to today.
