Examples of Academic Coworking Spaces/Models

Greetings coworkers,

I'm undertaking a project this summer to develop a proposal for an
academic coworking space for my university. I'd like to include
examples of other academic coworking spaces that already exist.
However, I'm having trouble locating these examples.

Does anyone know of any coworking spaces that are either a.)
administered by a university or b.) cater almost exclusively to
students? Ideally, this space would be in use by both students and
faculty. At this point, though, I'll take anything that may vaguely
fit this description.

If you can help me out by providing website URLs or contact
information I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Hi Sam,

Yes, Virginia Tech (50 miles from me) has an extremely successful co-working space that primarily caters to students. I’m opening a coworking space here in Roanoke (www.RoanokeBusinessLounge.com - launching in July) so I’ve done a lot of research on them. The one at Tech is called TechPad (http://techpad.org/). There are a lot of technology companies that utilize the space and have successfully launched major companies from within those walls, like Lejure (Google for more info). They have both a Facebook page and a website. You can google it and find a ton of articles, videos, and information about how they started. I think Jim Flowers, from VTWorks, was the major proponent of this initiative. From what I understand, the success of it was due to it being tied to a Marketing Firm. VT also has an E-Club for entrepreneurs. I’m happy to help you if you other questions.

Have a great day,

Sam Steidle

A team of faculty from various departments at Ohio State founded the STEAM Factory in December 2012. It has now grown to over 150 members from over 80 different departments and offices in the university. We operate on a very lean budget and have developed a coworking space in a converted warehouse downtown which opened in 2015. Everything was designed for faculty by faculty. We have been expanding our model to other universities now.

I helped start the Tisch Talent Guild at NYU in 1999 and it is still going today. http://www.tischtalentguild.com/ A guy had the idea of starting a student club and getting an office for it. Our office was off the common room. I’d be sitting on the sofa talking with someone about the theatre production we were doing, and I’d overhear someone say something about the film production they were doing, and I’d say, “You can do that?!” because we weren’t taught that in theatre.

It was a small room - there was a sofa, a round table, two tables each with a computer and monitor, a filing cabinet mostly for actor’s headshots, a bulletin board, some chairs, and the door… and the common room was the overflow area for big meetings that didn’t fit in the room and for private meetings. We signed up 1,000 members in the first year. No members paid anything. After the first year the university paid some salaries for some students to work there.

As a student club, we needed a liaison to the undergraduate student council for the arts school, and I loved participating in the democratic meetings. We had elected officers for the club itself, and any member could organize projects within the club. There was a lot going on.

There were far more similarities than differences with the other coworking places I’ve worked at since then.
