University CoWork has helped my business in SO many ways. The office space has improved my productivity dramatically, allowed me to have a professional setting to meet clients and improved my overall brand. But University CoWork is more than just an office. It opens up a network of opportunities to work with other business owners. I can't say enough about University CoWork! It is an asset to the community.

I can't say enough positive things about University CoWork and how they have made me and my clients feel so at home. Finding office space on the south side has not always been easy. But they have made it easy and exciting. Being so close to the university, downtown Hyde Park and the lake are bonuses. And being able to learn so much about the community and other members' businesses and organizations make it even better!

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.

Every aspect of University CoWork is superb! Since moving to Woodlawn in 2007, I have searched for suitable local office space for my law firm. I was happy to learn about University CoWork last year and eager to see the space and its amenities. The private offices, co-working spaces and common areas were all thoughtfully designed and built with highest quality finishes. University CoWork also offers far more than just professional office space. University CoWork is a welcoming community that monthly hosts networking and small business development programs and other events. I feel fortunate to be part of this vibrant community and urge those looking for local office space to visit University CoWork.

David Lubin was key to my expansion from a Chicago design firm to a branded North American design firm. He helped me acquire national and international clients during the most difficult business environment since the Great Depression. University CoWork helped me maintain consistent work during the pandemic, even during a pandemic construction depression in our territory. He propelled me to engage remote workers in the U.S. and abroad to keep my business growing despite the severe shortage of labor in the Chicago area. As other service businesses contracted, David’s encouragement propelled me to leverage our tech stack, deep and unique subject matter expertise, and international contacts to prosper in uncertain times.
