Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re interested in becoming a member, the best way to understand our space is to come and visit! You’re also welcome to drop in and buy a day pass ($20) Monday-Friday.
What should I bring on my first day?
Your laptop, phone, notebook, pens, and anything else you need to work. If you need extra equipment (i.e. whiteboards, additional screens, paperclips…), we’re happy to help! We do not have cable adaptors for your computer (i.e. VGA/HDMI/DVI to Mac or PC), so if you’d like to use one of our monitors, please make sure to bring the appropriate adaptor for your computer.
Do I need to make a reservation?
Nope! Either for your first day of work or for touring the space, a reservation is not necessary.
Where do I sit?
Our space is composed of floating desks. When you come in to work, you can locate a floating desk for your workstation if it does not have anything on it! Also, if you decide a change of scenery would do you well halfway through the day, you’re more than welcome to move around to another desk, or even downstairs.
Can I meet with clients and make conference calls?
Of course! We have five members-only, private and always free meeting spaces on both the 1st and 2nd floor, all available first-come, first-serve. You can also reserve them first thing in the morning before an afternoon meeting by writing your name in the appropriate slot on the glass. We also have three conference rooms that are reservable online for a small fee; there is no extra charge for bringing in clients/guests for a one to two hour meeting.
Please feel free to take phone calls at your desk while you’re at the HUB! After all, we’re not a library, we’re an interactive workplace. However, we do ask for you to respect those around you; if you need to raise your voice, or just need some privacy, please step into the hallway or one of the five phone booths we have located around the HUB.
Can I rent your conference rooms or entire space for events/board meetings/happy hours?
Yes! Let’s mosey on over to our Special Events page for more information…
Are you open on nights and weekends?
HUB Unlimited members have 24/7 access to our space with a key card. All other members can access the HUB via the entrance at 220 2nd Ave S that is open from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM, Monday-Friday. Learn more about our different membership options on our Membership page.
I’m a freelancer, and my schedule often changes from month to month. Do I need to sign a long-term contract?
Nope! All of our basic membership packages are month-to-month, no deposit fee required. Please keep in mind that you will need to let our billing department know about any changes to your membership by the 15th of the month, in order to not incur charges. Please email them at email@example.com with any changes to your membership.
Where can I park?
Pioneer Square offers many inexpensive options for parking. Here’s a map and parking directions for all of the parking options in the area.
We also love bicyclists! HUB members have access to a secure storage locker in the basement of our building.
P.S. Back Alley Bike Repair, located in the alley between 1st and 2nd, gives HUB member discounts for all services. Be sure to stop in and say hi!
Can I bring my dog?
Yes! Please make sure to keep your dogs leashed and lounging next to you – disruptive or unfriendly dogs will be asked to leave.

How are you different from other coworking spaces in Seattle?
The HUB Seattle is primarily here to support social entrepreneurs and their ideas. We describe ourselves as a member network first, collaborative workspace second. That means that we support our members through a variety of tools, including a state-of-the-art, gorgeous coworking space, opportunities to create connections with other like-minded members + investors + mentors, educational workshops and seminars, and most importantly, always keeping an eagle-eye focus on sustainability and building a strong, welcoming, and thriving local community for doing good.
Not only that, but we are part of a global movement that includes 25+ Hubs all over the world. Check out their website to learn more!
