"Best of Coworking in Chicago!"

    September 2020

    The University CoWork facility is beautiful, and I like the Zoom Rooms, video podcast production studio, and private offices. Free parking in a safe neighborhood is another plus. No wonder University CoWork has won awards, including the best of coworking in Chicago!

    "Great place to host a meeting or event. Great community and space to build a business or nonprofit!"

      January 2020

      University CoWork has been great for my wealth management and financial investments firm. Located in Merrillville, Indiana, our second location was in downtown Chicago. We wanted a professional office with a more neighborhood feel that is accessible to our south side Chicago clients. When University CoWork opened last year, we immediately closed our expensive downtown office and got a $95 flexible membership, and then upgraded to a $295 dedicated desk. This allows us to do occasional work on the south side of Chicago. We now have a professional presence, and can meet our clients at our office closer to where they work and live. I love the phone and meeting rooms. Great technology. We are able to offer our clients parking and coffee in our beautiful new space. Our firm also hosts investment events in the University CoWork boardroom, classroom, and event spaces. The video wall with intrgrated speakers is a crowd pleaser. The first financial services firm in Woodlawn in decades, I particularly enjoy bringing knowledge related to investments and retirement accounts to the neighborhood. Dozens of people who have attended our talks have learned about and set up tax-friendly retirement accounts as a direct result of being exposed to this information. We have also hired people from Woodlawn, and patronize south side vendors as much as possible. I strongly recommend University CoWork to anyone looking to grow their business. The facility and business / nonprofit community are unmatched. The other members have complimentary areas of expertise. Many have become vendors, clients, and friends. I have learned about branding, how to build business credit, social media, and even how to use art to engage people. The $50 virtual office, private office, shared office, membet-only events and socials, and communuty events are unparalleled.

      "Great Conference Rooms and Friendly Community"

        December 2019

        While traveling through Chicago and visiting Hyde Park, I stumbled upon this gem. Located in Woodlawn right across from The University of Chicago, I was pleasantly surprised by the neighborhood feel of both the facility and people. That said, it's gorgeous, and alike what I would expect to find in the central business district. I enjoyed the cappuccino - made with local, freshly ground beans - made on demand. My visit was comfortable and productive.

        "Top-of-the-line Business Meeting, Conference, Reception, and Development Center"

          December 2019

          University CoWork shared office space in the Woodlawn neighborhood of Chicago (near Hyde Park, Bronzeville, Washington Park, and South Shore) is a great business development vehicle. There is no better location to hold meetings, conferences, receptions, or events on the south side of Chicago. The community is alive - both helpful and vibrant. The amenities are A++. Parking, printing, scanning, commercial projection TVs, a video wall, three types of coffee, drinks on demand, and corporate wifi speed and security. Whether in the gorgeous kitchen/break room, a meeting room, boardroom, or events space, clients will walk away impressed. It's both comfortable and productive. I can both socialize and concentrate. What a great addition to the burgeoning southside business community!

          "Best coworking and shared office space in Chicago!"

            December 2019

            I attended the official launch of University CoWork in November of 2018. What an elegant event. Music and food was provided by local south side businesses. It is amazing how much the community has grown and thrived during the past year. From monthly community events to educational seminars, this is the premier business and economic development center on the south side. It’s amazing how many talented people are based on the south side of Chicago. The community is made up of people from Woodlawn, Bronzeville, Chatham, Soith Shore, and Hyde Park, among other south side neighborhoods. We finally have top-notch amenities! Where else can you get a virtual office for $50, scale a business, hold a meeting, conduct a workshop, or host an event? Combine this with Class A office space, great people, and amenities like coffee, drinks, printing, meeting room access, and member social events for $95 (flexible membership) per month? No wonder it was named the Best in Chicago 2019 by Chicago Magazine!

            "Private Offices"

              September 2019

              Where can you get downtown amenities in Woodlawn? University Cowork truly offers a professional atmosphere, great coffee, and a business network. I truly love the “Lunch and Learn” workshops ...I have learned at from the Google workshop and the Business Credit Workshop. I’m not sure if there’s any Coworking space that cares so much about it’s Members. I understand why Chicago magazine calls this Coworking space is ...the best of Chicago!! Congratulations University CoWork!!

              "University CoWork Community"

                June 2019

                University CoWork is really what coworking is all about - community. It is so refreshing to be in a space that is full of driven and friendly people. The people, unlimited coffee/beverages, high-speed wifi, and events make my experience truly great.

                "First Full Service Business Center on the South Side"

                  June 2019

                  I'm biased, but love this space. It brings downtown amenities to the heart of Woodlawn/Hyde Park. The facility is gorgeous, and the community is strong.

                  "An Awesome Blend of Community: Local Small Business Owners & Global Academics"

                    June 2018

                    FULL DISCLOSURE - I've worked as a consultant on this space. Ok, that said...everything I say is still the truth. University CoWork is a result of close to three years of hard work by a local entrepreneur and resident of the Woodlawn neighborhood and longtime member of the University of Chicago faculty. David saw first hand the lack of professional workspace located on the South Side of Chicago for a wide array of local small business owners. Secondly, there's an inordinate number of academics and individuals associated with UChicago that need space for either studying, research or meetings with grant writers, funders or subject matter experts. It's exciting to be a part of a diverse mix of professionals and academics alike. We've got an immigration attorney, grant writer, beauty supply distributor and non-profit orgs as members, in addition to visiting students, NGOs and consultants. Our first members came to escape working from home or the local coffee shop and have spread the word on the added benefits they've already received through meeting new folks and growing their business or area of study. The space is also incredibly well designed and built out to some very high standards. The private offices and dedicated desk room were engineered to optimize sound dampening, in addition to top of the line A/V and amenities including a gourmet espresso machine, drinks on tap and a customizable Coca-Cola machine!
