Coworking Membership Guide

Colony Co-Working – Down Arrow

15 March 2022

Finding a co-working space in central Manchester is easier than you think, but finding the right one can be a challenge. We've put together a helpful guide to answer common questions about coworking and the benefits that come with our memberships.

The rise in co-working in recent years has seen many of us move to a new city in a remote capacity. We know how daunting this can be so we're here to help!


Where you work matters just as much as what you’re working on. Colony co-working spaces take pride of place in Manchester’s bustling creative hotspots of Ancoats and Piccadilly. Purposely designed with professionals in mind, Colony workspaces prioritise efficient, productive, modern working. All our sites are well connected to transport links and no more than a 15-minute walk from Piccadilly station so if you're new in town, you'll have no trouble finding us.

Manchester was recently voted the 3rd best city to live in the world by Time Out and you'll definitely benefit from being in the heart of this exciting culturally rich city. Why not check out our Colony guides to the local areas to get the most out of your new stomping ground.

If you're new to Manchester, meeting new people is made easy at our sociable community-based spaces.

A great way to discover more of the city is by using our member's exclusive discount card. We've reached out and partnered with local gyms, cafes, bars and restaurants all of which our members have access to at a discounted rate - making these new introductions lighter on your wallet too!


What do I need from my workspace? Well with a choice of cost-effective memberships or flexible day passes, you can tailor your Colony experience to suit your specific needs. Dedicated desks are our premium all-inclusive membership offering your team their own designated workspace. Floating desks offer a more flexible all-inclusive access to all our sites, while day passes offer pay-as-you-go access to all sites for ultimate flexibility.

Are bills included? While some co-working spaces charge extra for unlimited Wi-Fi, all bills are included in our membership packages.

Can my team expand? There is space to grow into at all of our venues and our private offices will be able to host you.

What access do I get? Our memberships offer 24/7 access meaning that our spaces will accommodate all those late nights and early starts.

What if I need to make private calls? All our sites offer private phone booths perfect for phone calls or zoom meetings.

Can I book a meeting room? Our sites boast a number of multi-capacity meetings rooms available to book through the website or through the members portal.

Do you have printers? We do! Our memberships include printer access and each site is equipped for all your printing, scanning and photocopying needs.

How long can I commit to this membership? We offer our memberships from 1 month, 3 months or 6 months so you can commit for as little or as long as you need.

How do I know I'm getting the best rate? We're proud to be one of the most competitive co-working spaces in Manchester.

If that wasn't enough, we have a whole host of events across our sites so you can fully immerse yourself in our Colony community.


Do you want an office that's more than just an office? Colony’s community focus allows you to network with fellow creatives, freelancers and businesses. Your next investor, business partner or employee could be a mere desk away. With a robust community events calendar, boasting brunches, yoga and quizzes, to name a few, Colony’s sociability banishes the Monday morning blues and makes coming to work a joy. Our regular varied events programme will give you opportunities to meet new people and introduce you to new parts of the city. If you're new to central Manchester, don't be afraid to ask your on site community team for the best lunch spots or their favourite place to grab after work drinks. Our spaces are made up of new and long standing members, Manchester locals and those from further a field from a wide variety of industries. Chat with your fellow co-workers and access the wealth of knowledge and experience our members have to offer.
