Boarders and Boarding Policy

What is a Boarder?

  • A boarder is a person who eats at the co-ops but does not live on the premises.
  • One is eligible to become a boarder during any of SCA's resident terms; since there are no provisions for food service during the interim breaks, there is no boarding during those breaks.
  • A "full" boarder is one who eats more than 10 meals a week in the co-ops; a "partial" boarder is one who eats 10 or less.
  • Currently, we are only providing house dinner meals as an option for boarders.
  • House dinners are hearty, home-cooked, nutritious, and primarily organic meals.
  • House dinners are vegan and vegetarian friendly. Please specify any other specific food needs.

Application to Become a Boarder

  1. A boarder applicant must complete a boarder application, and submit a deposit of $60.00 prior to boarding.
  2. When completing the application, the applicant must determine the number of weekly meals desired, and pay all boarding fees agreed to in the contract in advance.

  3. Boarders are required to follow all SCA policies and rules as required of resident members.

See the official boarding policy for the nitty and gritty details of boarding with us. (It should read very similar to this information)
