Mapping Seattle’s many coworking spaces

Find a place that works for you

View as Map

More and more Seattleites are working outside of the traditional office, whether they’re starting their own company or telecommuting, and those people don’t all want to work from their living room. Enter the area’s fast-growing collection of coworking spaces. Seattle is full of “imagination incubators” and “creative labs” and “inspirational studios,” and it seems like every time one closes, ten more open.

So if you’re looking for a place to plop down your laptop but also forge new working relationships and friendships while doing it—or maybe you just need a PO box and the occasional conference room and don’t want to maintain your own printer—here’s a handy map of coworking spaces all across Seattle. It’s not just for digital media folks; there are plenty of spaces for creatives, engineers, lawyers, designers, developers, or whatever else you might be doing. If you can think of it, there’s probably a place where other people are already doing it and waiting for you to join them.

Give a few a try. If you try five, you could get a mug! (Really!)

Map points are ordered north to south.
