Coworking isn’t just for entrepreneurs and freelancers. More employees than ever are working remotely, and more students than ever before are distance-learners.
A good coworking facility provides all the resources students need to get work done: a comfortable, modern, low-distraction workspace, ultra-high-speed internet, plenty of convenient outlets to charge tech gadgets, a frig for your lunch, and unlimited free caffeine. (The savings in coffee alone could pay for a membership!)
Amenities like lockers and showers increase the utility of a coworking space for students, who are frequently combining work and school, or taking classes both online and on-campus. Members can utilize the printer/copier for a nominal fee, as well. For $20 per month, a member can opt for an Adams Hub mailbox.
Need to take or make a phone call? Coworking etiquette dictates that a quiet, short call is okay, but a “phone booth” is offered for those longer conversations. Want to get outside? Adams Hub offers a coworking rooftop deck with wifi.
But what about remote learners? One of the biggest challenges for students of online schools and courses is isolation. A home environment presents myriad distractions. (The dog, the laundry, the refrigerator…) Coffee shops can be loud and crowded. A good coworking facility creates an atmosphere of focus, with just the right amount of social interaction.
In fact, the biggest benefit of student coworking is the opportunity for collaboration and networking. It may be as simple as, “Hey, I know someone who could help you with X,” or it could be as rewarding as, “Hey, I’m looking for someone who does Z. Would you be interested?” In a coworking environment, students are exposed to entrepreneurs and freelancers who could open up new and interesting opportunities, including jobs.
Adams Hub offers a Student Membership that provides access Monday through Friday from 9 to 5 p.m. The discounted membership rate is just $49 (a $100 savings over our standard $149, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. membership.)
