Kresge features a Music Co-op, a space where students and bands may practice instruments with amplified sound (as this is not allowed in the apartments). Eight storage lockers are available and assigned by lottery. The Music Co-op also functions to organize and promote concerts at Kresge College.
The Kresge Food Co-op is a non-profit food store located on the south side of Kresge. The Co-op supports small farmers, the UCSC Farm Project, and the Kresge Garden. Inventory focuses on natural and organic foods. While anyone can buy food at the Food Co-op, members receive a discount.
