The Healey Co-operative House was established at Bucknell University in 1940 to provide dormitory accommodations and board for 10 college women. The co-operative house was located at 615 Taylor Street and according to the 1942 Bucknell University student handbook, the students were required to "do all their own housework, including cooking, marketing, and balancing their budget. The plan results in considerable financial savings for those students, and offers practical experience in home management problems." Members of the co-operative house were chosen on the basis of financial need, character, scholarship, and ability to get along with other students. A resident hostess provided the students with assistance in the management of the house. The Healey Co-operative House was discontinued in 1945.
