Get Directions

Walk five minutes south of campus and you’ll stumble upon Old Barrows, a beautiful brick, pillared building with a grand front porch and a large luscious lawn in front. Some have cited Old B for being inconveniently far away, while others appreciate its privacy away from central campus.

Referred to as “Old B,” recent renovations converted the former housing and dining co-op into a safe space as OSCA’s first housing only co-op. It has a capacity for 21 students, with a emphasis primarily on trans and nonbinary persons, and secondly on cisgender women.

Old B at one time was the smallest residential co-op with 15 residents and a capacity to provide meals for 80 OSCA members.
