Kairos’ small size makes for an intimate and connective co-op experience. Located on the mid-upper row, residents can easily enjoy social life on the row while finding a retreat back at the house. Kairos was established in 1988 and is one of the youngest co-ops on campus, with residents having ample opportunity to shape the community and its values. Historically, the house has been a welcoming space for art enthusiasts of all varieties. Kairos builds intentional community, wherein members both put in the work to help each other thrive and enjoy the authentic connections to each other that result.
Kairos sits on the unceded lands of the Muwekma Ohlone who’ve lived here for thousands of years. As a contemporary people, the Muwekma Ohlone continue to have a relationship with this land. As a house occupying their land, Kairos is devoted to centering Indigenous voices as well as other voices of color in our community.
