Yes and no, memberships begin the day you sign up, as you are charged a prorated amount for the month. At the time you sign up you will have full use of your chosen membership, including monthly credits. Your due date will always be on the first. This keeps it simple for everyone.
Our staff is on site between 9AM - 6PM Monday through Friday.
For members, please refer to your membership guide for access hours, which is accessible using your digital key card.
Of Course! Non-Members may come by for a tour, purchase a day pass, or book meeting rooms. While onsite you have access to all of our amenities.

No, the Podcast studio is not included in your monthly membership, as it is a separate membership package. Members only get a tour of the studio. Members may sign up for the free podcast class to learn more about Podcasting, the studio equipment and to test out if Podcasting is something they want to embark on.
Yes, simply log in to your account and modify or cancel your reservation. Please keep in mind that you must cancel one hour prior, otherwise you will be charged for the reservation.

All memberships are month to month and automatically renew, unless you cancel before your next renewal date or unless we have entered into a lease with your for your virtual office, which requires a 12-month membership lease. However, private offices require a twelve-month commitment and are considered more of a lease than membership.
You may put your account on hold for up to 2-4 weeks every 6 months or cancel your membership completely. If you cancel your membership, the cancellation goes into effect at the end of your billing cycle, and unfortunately, we cannot offer retroactive refunds for processed renewals. You can re-subscribe at any time.

Either of these could increase or decrease the amount of people able to fit in the space. Members may also reserve the entire space for their own private events. Please speak with your community manager to make arrangements.
