Steel House is a cooperative living group established on the University of Idaho campus in 1952. The house is home for up to 32 diverse and extraordinary women. Members share room and board expenses and participate in household chores to reduce living expenses. All internal affairs of Steel House are run by house members and are overseen by an active, local alumnae board.
Community:If you are looking for a close-knit community of women who care about each other and their House; and a group of girls who often gather to watch TV, go to see a movie, or go out to dinner; and a place you can call home … Steel House might be for you.
For 2012-2013 the Women of Steel House will live at 908 Blake Avenue in the Delta Chi House, and then we are moving to a new location at 503 Taylor Avenue.
