Memberships are on a month to month basis with no lock in contracts.

Memberships are available as full-time or part-time. To learn more about these, please visit our memberships page.

I’m not a startup or new business, can I still become a Member?

Yes you can! Upstairs is for anyone. For example, we have many remote workers that want to get out of the home office, small businesses that want that professional edge, and students that don’t want to study in their dorm rooms. Please get in touch with us if you wish to know more.

Are there conditions of use as a member?

Yes, there are. See here for our Terms and Conditions, which all of our members and mentors need to agree to in order to join our community.

What is the process of applying for membership or mentoring?

If you are interested in joining the community, we suggest coming in for a tour first. This will give you a feel of the space and how the coworking community operates. From there, you just apply for what membership best suits you and the Upstairs team will review your application and get you all set up.
