Below is our application form. Please take your time to fill it in so we can get a good picture of who you are and why you are interested in living at Sanford. After submitting the form you should receive an email confirming that we have received it, if you do not, or if you have made an error on the form you would like to correct, please send us an email at

We will be in touch by email once we have received your form to explain the next steps and invite you to the street to interview, please note that there can sometimes be a delay in this as we receive a high volume of applications.

There are two rounds of interview, an initial - with three members from across the co-op, where you will be asked about the answers on your form, your understanding of a co-op and why you are applying, but this is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about co-op life and see if it is right for you.

Then, following a successful initial interview you will be invited to a house placement when there are room/s available. This is an interview with the house/s who have the space, and normally with around 5 to 8 members of that house.
