Have some fun and click around the map. You can zoom in and out, and click on particular spaces to find out more information, and to go directly to their space page (indeed, you can even check-in right here if you’re keen).

Check out Our Featured & New Spaces

If you want some inspiration, just underneath the map you’ll find some featured spaces and new ones too.

2. Look at Space Options

Found a space? Great. Click on its name, and let’s have a look at what they offer.

Look at the Basic Info and Request Box

On the space page, you will find everything you need to know about a space: their location, hours, types of events hosted, a brief description of the space and even tags and reviews below for you to peruse. Most importantly: you’ll also find what’s included next to the price (coworking, making, accommodation). And pay attention to the Request Box. This will notify you if you must send a message reserving your place in advance (some spaces do, some don’t, you’ll find out here). If it is mandatory, simply click on the box, choose a date and click ‘send’ to get it straight to the manager!

Look at Your Possible Add-Ons

If you’re still happy with the space, the next bit to consider are your Add-Ons. These are additional things you can purchase on top of your daily pass in the space. They are listed under the description on each space page, and are custom charges offered by managers. If you are interested, make sure to mention them in your request you send to the manager. Even if requests are not mandatory, it’s always nice to let the manager know ahead of time if you would like to use a meeting room or laser cutter!

Look at Your Possible Hosting Options

Now that you have a place to work, let’s find you a place to sleep. Take a look to see if there are any Copassers at your (future) workspace who can host you. Simply check underneath the photos on the space page, and you’ll find the “hosting” section with everyone present who can offer you a place to stay, whether it’s through Copass directly, Airbnb or Couchsurfing. Just click on one of the profile pictures, and then send a message directly to the Copasser, asking if you can stay. And keep an eye out! Some spaces offer accommodation, too, and they’re often really, really cool.

3. Check Yourself In

Finally, the fun part. Once you’ve arrived at your space, just walk in the door.

Check-In

Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for! As soon as you’ve arrived in the space, if it’s your first time there it would be nice to say hello to the manager, and that you’re using Copass! Then all you have to do is go to the space page and click the gigantic, hard-to-miss, green button that says “CHECK ME IN.” You will receive a confirmation popup to double-check the price you will be charged: just click confirm if you’re happy, and voila! The manager will receive a notification email, and your card will be charged for the day.

OR! Alternatively, Check-In with Add-Ons by the Manager

If you want some add-ons on top of your daily price (such as a meeting room, or access to a 3D printer), then all you have to do is go speak to the manager, and they will check you in with the appropriate add-ons that you’ve requested! (They’re not so scary, we promise!) Ideally in this situation, you would have already sent a request to the manager to notify them of your interest in add-ons, and if you’ve done that everything will be super-easy for all those involved. When the manager checks you in, your card will be charged and you can get right to working in no time. That’s it!
