Living at Sheridan
Sheridan house has 4 membership openings available immediately.
We’re also be open to subletters for short-term stays under six months.
All residents pay $550 per month. $100 of this goes to shared food and the rest pays for rent, supplies and utilities. We have washers and dryers on the premises, wi-fi throughout the building, bathrooms and showers on every floor, as well as personal sinks in every room.
Membership is for one year, minimum. When members cannot fulfill the remainder of their lease, they are responsible for finding a PEWTOPPer (subletter), who sublets for the remainder of that member’s lease year.
Sheridan House is an intentional community, sustained and governed by its members. This means that house decisions are achieved through group consensus. It also means that each member is expected to devote at least four hours a week to the upkeep of the house. This work commitment consists of one hour of chores and three hours either cooking for the house, managing finances or some other house function. Additionally, each member is expected to attend weekly house meetings which usually last a few hours.
