The OG coworking membership, designed to connect you to versatile workspace & amazing amenities
What's a shared desk, you ask?
Our Shared Desk membership is basically an all-access pass to coworking with Common Desk. It is designed to connect members, cultivate community, and enhance productivity through full hours of access, flexible seating arrangements, and invigorating aesthetics. Enjoy the energy that comes from working alongside other driven professionals, in an inspiring environment.
A look at some of our shared spaces
We curate specific areas of our spaces to match any desired vibe of your workday. Float freely from our cafe-style areas to get the coffee shop vibe, sit at an elevated shared desk for focus, or head to the cocktail lounge at the end of the day.
We put the "amen" in amenities
Common Desk is more than a network of coworking spaces. We’re an Experience Provider, and we use amenities like a custom-built app, craft coffee, and private cocktail lounges to help our member community truly enjoy the work they do day-in and day-out.
On-demand craft coffee + bites
Ordering your coffee or breakfast through Ellum (our app) means we’ll bring it right to your desk!
Shared bikes + storage
Bikes for you to take a spin around the neighborhood on.
Sit/stand + treadmill desks
Wellness desks that sit and stand when you want them to.
Cocktail lounges + beer on tap
The best way to daycap is at one of our cocktail lounges.
Outdoor patios + green spaces
For the moments when you need some workday fresh air and a change of scenery.
Freaky-fast wifi + secure network
Because everyone needs fiber.
Community + wellness events
Weekly events that are actually worth going to.
Open network of locations
Our members have access to any and all Common Desk locations (the list is growing as you read this).
Unlimited conference room bookings
No credits needed. Our conference rooms are there when you need them!
Shared Desk FAQs
Here’s the DL on the specifics of our most flexible coworking membership.
What am I committing to?
To break the cycle of ironclad leases, all of our memberships are month to month. With each payment, you are only agreeing to commit for another month!
Is parking free?
Parking and its price varies location to location, but we do all that we can to keep it as affordable (but mostly as free) as possible. Most of our locations offer free parking, whether at meters or in covered garages. Our more urban spaces, like Downtown spaces, require either a parking add-on or paid parking according to preference.
Can I bring guests?
Any friend of yours is a friend of ours! Your guests are free to join you for meetings in our conference rooms. If a friend or colleague wants to come work for a full day, all they’ll need is a day pass! We also have regular bring-a-friend-to-work days for members, so be sure to ask a staffer about it when you join!
Can I bring my doggo?
Not every location allows pets, but several do! For those that do (be sure to ask on your tour to learn these locations), we have a few guidelines to follow before bringing your pup in to work. If you want to bring your dog to the office, come by on a weekend to help them get familiar with the space (and doorbell). If they pass the weekend test, you can ask your Community Manager about our weekday dog policy!
Will I bother people if I talk on my phone?
Definitely not! When you think of a coworking space, think of a coffee shop vs a library. Everyone here spends most of their day on the phone, so we designed our space to have high ceilings with lots of white noise to ensure that you feel comfortable taking calls in the open. We also have chatrooms and conference rooms that are perfect for hopping on important calls.
Can I move freely between Common Desk locations?
Want to start the morning in Deep Ellum and end the day in Addison? Doing business between Austin and Dallas? Your access card is just the ticket you need! As a member, you have complete freedom to do move location to location as you desire! Access cards vary by location, so be sure to ask your CM about the entry system of a different space before you go (especially on weekends). You can use our app to RSVP to events or book conference rooms at other spaces.
Can I live at Common Desk?
Short answer: No, please don’t. That would be paradise though, wouldn’t it? You can’t sleep here, unfortunately. As of now, everyone (staff included) has to be out by the last hour of access of your space! Before you accidentally trip an alarm, be sure to take note of your location’s access hours before pulling a late night work sesh.
