**Community Guidelines **
Respect meeting space and policy (rooms, schedule, credits) Please utilize the member booking portal to find out the available times and dates for each meeting room. Not being conscientious of schedule times may negatively impact others. Members may use a meeting room without reservation to take a call that is no greater than 15 minutes. When taking a call that exceeds 15 minutes, members must reserve the room through the booking portal. If a long and important meeting is in your week's calendar, please reserve a meeting room as soon as you know it is needed. Member Credit may not be resold, shared, or gifted. Monthly credits do not rollover.
Cleanliness is essential, but especially in coworking spaces. With coworkers sharing one big space, please ensure your temporary workstation is clean and tidy before you leave. Don't forget to toss your coffee cup and space napkins, either. Common Courtesy in the Common Space. As a general rule, treat the space like how you want your home to be treated. This means eating only in designated areas, brushing up on the visitor policy, not taking items that are not yours, screaming in the hallways act. While this should go without saying, avoid discriminatory behavior and harassment toward your fellow members. -it's their space too!
Please be mindful of other people's space. While our flex eating is assumed to be shared, a permanent desk is off-limits. If you see someone wearing headphones or immersed at work, don't distract them. This is an excellent opportunity to message your fellow coworking member on our app.
Contribute to your community. Ready to contribute? Not with money but with YOU. While The Co-Lab becomes an ambassador for you as soon as you sign-up, we still strongly encourage you as a member to network, introduce yourself and share what brings you to The Co-Lab. Welcome to our work family.
