below are the most frequently asked questions about our office space.

Who cleans my office?

Our cleaner will clean your office/desk on a regular basis, but you are responsible for keeping it tidy while you are using it and clearing the office/desk when you leave.

Do I have access to the meeting space?

You bet you do. Our meeting space can be booked by members for just $20+GST/session

Can I bring Pets or Children?

You can bring well behaved pets or children to the office. They do count as your allowed guest, so if you have additional guests you will need to book a meeting room or private office.

What comes with a private office?

Walls, doors, and in most cases an exterior window for natural light. We provide tables, chairs and key card access for a designated team size. Team size is dictated by the size of the office.

Can I customize my office?

yes, but all customizations will need to be consistent with other décor and be approved by the squidspace team. If you terminate your membership, you are required to remove any artwork and return walls to their original condition and color.

Do you require long-term leases?

Nope, everything is a month to month membership with a full-months notice required upon cancellation. A discount is available if you prepay for multiple months.

How do my clients/guests get in the office?

Our doors are locked 100% of the time and we do not have a full-time receptionist. That means you need to be available to let your guests in and stay until your guests leave.

I don't need an office, can I still be involved in networking?

We have free small business meetups and paid training on a regular basis. Check our social media for the next event.

Virtual members get to use our office address and attend member events.

Is Parking available?

With room to park your scooter, the Myway app and everything within walking distance, you probably won't want to bring your car, but if you do.

Street parking and the Cains Terrace Public Carpark is run by the TDC.  Use the PayMyPark app


Long Term parking may be available at Draftline, 10 Beswick St. ph 03 688 8455
