What is Cowork?
Everyday, we're buzzing with Hubbers coworking out of our space at Somerset Road. Coworking space is what makes up most of The HUB Singapore!
What is coworking you ask? Here's a quick video showing what makes it different from working at home or in an office.
Not just a Coworking Space... Hold events at The HUB Singapore!
We're a modular space to fit talks, unconferences, social mixers, workshops, story slams, or even film screenings... Events with a social, environmental, cultural, or entrepreneurial purpose.
Hubbers love that we are a 2 minute stroll from Somerset MRT- or 12 minutes from Dhoby Ghaut MRT station- and your audiences will too! We are highly recognizable as the red building with the iconic Red Bus parked outside. You can even segue your event into dinner along Orchard Road or drinks at Emerald Hill, 5 minutes away.
We have 6 meeting room options, and 3 options for events. Casual yet energetic, our space has played host to 120 events by Hubbers and partners, since we opened in May 2012.
Fill in this form to book for events. Our team will confirm availability within 48 hours.
To book meeting rooms for 1 to 2 hours, log in to HUBnet, and click "S'pore Meeting Rooms". If you are on a HUB Friends membership tier, simply make payment at the meeting rooms.
For half or full day bookings, Hubbers can approach the hosting team or scribble us a note at email@example.com.
All rates shown are valid till end Dec 2013.

The preferred method of payment is direct bank transfer. If you opt to pay by Cash, Cheque or by PayPal (please request the PayPal address from firstname.lastname@example.org) payments will incur a $20 administration fee.
Event organizers are responsible for timely setting up and running of their events. They will need to restore the space to its original condition after use. The team is happy to provide equipment training the week before- simply make a date with us.
If you require assistance from the team in arranging the furniture, please note that there will be a $50 logistics fee. For tear down, there will also be a $50 logistics fee for event organizers who do not restore the space to its original coworking layout. To save on these extra costs, simply follow our space guide that is sent upon confirmation of booking.

Tips for event organizers
Our layout is modular and flexible; move chairs & tables around as you like. The rule of thumb: simply return the space to its original condition after use. For setup, event organizers who require assistance from the team in moving furniture will need to pay a $50 logistics fee. For tear down, there will also be a $50 logistics fee for event organizers who do not restore the original coworking layout after use. To save on these additional costs, simply follow the instructions in the space manual sent upon confirmation of booking.
We provide training for space optimization and sound equipment (15 min session), and recommend it as long as your event uses the sound system or expects between 30 to 100 people. Make a date with the team (Mon - Fri: 9.00AM to 5.00PM) at least a week before your event.
Please note that The HUB team is not around on weekends. If your event is on a Saturday or Sunday, it's especially important to meet us for equipment training.
Make sure you have enough helpers on your team, so that both setup and the event run as you desire. We recommend that you arrive an hour before your event.
Please recognise us (via logos, credit, Facebook tagging, etc.) as your venue supporter on all promotional material. It will make locating us even easier for your guests. We'll send you a convenient little blurb, directions, and our logo.
Depending on the nature/timing of your event, we might like to have 3 minutes at the beginning of your event to introduce The HUB.
