50 Years Long and Strong!

Beginning in 1970, CTC's was established from our residents' determination, innovation, and the power of like-minded individuals asserting that the community could be more economically managed by its residents, as prompted by numerous rent increases and tenant dissatisfaction with University management.

Now 50 years later, CTC has stayed true in providing a quality, affordable housing option, as well as a peaceful work environment filled with vast green spaces and a family-friendly orientation. Our community continuously drives our co-op through collaboration, ingenuity, and leadership, while ceaselessly growing CTC into the vibrant, all-inclusive hub of diverse cultures, ages, studies, and backgrounds it is today.

In celebration of our community's monumental anniversary, we're hosting our fourth T-Shirt Design Contest, where all ages are welcome to contribute artwork, then the community-elected design will be printed onto t-shirts for pre-order.​​
