All prospective members of BCL go through a membershipping process before signing a lease and becoming a part of the BCL community.

This first step requires applicants to fill out an application available through the "Apply" button located at the top of every BCL website page.


Schedule a meeting at one of our houses (due to COVID-19, the cooking portion be waved and instead may take place via Zoom): Schedule a cooking shift at a BCL house. If you do an in person cooking shift, don't worry, we aren't asking you to cook on your own.

During this visit, you'll participate in an informal two-way interview with other cooperative members. This is a perfect time to ask any questions about BCL, it's members, and the houses.


Visit all BCL houses. Schedule visits for the other houses by responding to our email. We highly encourage you to attend a dinner, if possible. If you can't make dinner, then at least get a tour.

Since any of these houses could be your new home, we want to make sure you get a chance to see them all. Feel free to join a house meeting or General Assembly.
