Stucco Housing Cooperative is at 197 Wilson Street, Newtown. It was established in 1991 to address the growing need for genuinely affordable student housing in Sydney. Stucco prides itself on its democratic principles of self-management and stands as a strong counter-example to the prevailing assumption of nearly all rental accommodation: we do not need a landlord or building manager to create a livable home. Almost as a direct result of that, we have a vibrant community life.
