Coworking Day Pass: Where to Rent a Desk for a Day

With the growth of coworking spaces, more and more people are interested in trying them out. One of the many ways that you can choose to take advantage of coworking is with a coworking day pass. These will give you access to facilities for a single day and are a good method of trying out a given space. Alternatively, you may want to rent a desk for just a day if you appreciate changing your scenery regularly or travel and want to work in each new destination.

Many coworking spaces offer day passes in addition to monthly memberships

All coworking spaces also offer a range of membership options in addition to day passes. In most cases, memberships are month-to-month and depend on the amenities you want, with discounts for those who do not mind changing desks every day or want access for limited hours.  

Platforms to Rent a Desk

Since there are so many coworking spaces around the world, many platforms have appeared to help you easily find a coworking day pass when you need one. Some platforms are global, while others are city-specific. These are a few that let you find day passes with ease.

Coworker helps you find coworking spaces with room based on your location. The platform includes more than 158 countries and over 9,000 coworking spaces. When you search, you can choose to look for daily, weekly, or monthly passes. Coworker will display which of the coworking spaces in your chosen city offer free day passes, or you can click on a coworking space to view their rates.

LiquidSpace is similar to Coworker, letting you search for nearby coworking locations that offer a day pass or hourly or monthly passes.

Croissant lets you use a single pass to find a workspace in thousands of seats in over 50 cities. The platform includes a free trial that lasts seven days, making it even better than a free day pass. There are three monthly plans, each with a different number of hours that you can access a Croissant space. The smallest plan is almost the equivalent of a day pass, as it gives you 10 hours per month for $29.

Haus is a city-specific coworking offering in London. You can get a single free day pass, and after that, you can buy daily memberships for £15. Haus has three current locations in London at hotels and cafes, with another coming soon. Day passes include expected member benefits like high-speed Wi-Fi, unlimited tea, coffee, snacks, and power outlets.

The Yard helps bring together remote workers in Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York City, Brooklyn, and Boston. You can purchase a day pass for $35 and access any of The Yard’s coworking spaces from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm during the workweek. Day pass users can also attend any of the day’s events at The Yard and get a free 7-day membership to Croissant.

Average Prices of Coworking Day Passes

Each coworking space handles its day passes differently, so the prices will vary somewhat. Many spaces, including WeWork, will offer you a free day pass so you can rent a desk for a single day to test out the space. This is the coworking space’s method of giving you a free trial. Setting aside the coworking spaces with free day passes, which are typically limited, a typical day pass is about $30 to $40. Prices will vary by coworking space, city, location within the city, the size of the space, and the amenities included.

To purchase a WeWork daily pass without a membership, you can go through its parent company, The We Company. It recently started Made by We, which is the first on-demand retail and coworking space. It allows you to purchase a place to work for the day in the Flatiron District. With 96 seats, 6 conference rooms, and 10 private phone booths, you are able to work the way you need to. Made by We allows you to pay for a seat reservation for as little as 30 minutes for $6, with each additional minute costing you an additional $.20. Or, you can book a day pass in advance, which costs $50 for WeWork members and $65 for the general public. 

Another option if you want is a WeWork day pass. For $45 a month, you receive two credits a month, which you can use to rent a conference room and workspace. If you want to visit more often, you have the option to purchase more credits for $25 each. 

Free vs. Paid Daily Passes 

There aren’t many differences between a free and paid daily pass. With both passes, you often will get access to the same amenities, like a workspace, free coffee and tea, fast WiFi, and more. Regardless of whether or not you paid or received the pass for free, it will likely only last for a single day. The coworking space wants you to use free daily passes to showcase the workspace and encourage to sign up for a membership if you enjoyed your time there. Especially if you are living in a bigger city, many competing coworking spaces will offer a one-time offer for a free daily pass. Both large and small coworking spaces will offer a free pass.  For those who are new to coworking spaces, it is a good way to figure out if it is a conducive place to work for you. 

Why Use A Day Pass

Purchasing a one-time day pass can be a good option for some freelancers who don’t want to commit to a monthly membership. If you need a place to meet with current or potential clients or host a meeting with coworkers, it can be the ideal spot. Many times, even if you are using a day pass, you can rent a conference or meeting room. Or, perhaps if you just need a new environment to work for a few hours, a coworking space can be the change of scenery you have been needing. Before signing up for a membership, try purchasing a day pass, or looking for a free pass, to see if the space is right for you.
