What Is Hotdesking (And Why We Offer It)

Have you ever wanted to give coworking a try, but you didn’t want to commit to a full month or more of renting that desk space? Maybe you’re traveling from out of town on business and you just need a desk for a few days before heading back to home base? In either case, hotdesking could be the answer for you.

In essence, hotdesking (or hot desking, if you prefer) is a system wherein the same desk is used by multiple people, only at different times of the day. This is great for resource sharing and cost savings, since you aren’t paying for the time where you aren’t using the desk. At the same time, when you are working at the desk, you have full access to all the services and equipment that come with that desk space. In the case of The Network Hub, that includes a fully furnished desk, high speed Internet, reception service, and a shared fax line.

This is a great way to experience the coworking environment and it’s also very useful if you know you’ll be in the neighborhood and need a safe, secure, and comfortable place to get some work done. Hot desking is available at both our New Westminster, Whistler and Downtown Vancouver campuses. The standard rate is $5 per hour between 9am and 5pm, or you can book out an entire day for $35.
