Okay I’m sold. What do I do now?
Fill in the Get On Board form and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that we are booked 2-3 months in advance so be mindful about letting us know about your plans early enough. After arranging the dates and all the details, you will fill in the Application Form, where you’ll have to provide us with necessary information for our Background check. Yes, more information provided means an easier and faster background check process. After, we will ask you for a non-refundable $400 holding fee to book your spot which will become your Security Deposit if you move in. If you decide to not move in, you will forfeit this holding fee.
What is Co-living?
Co-living is a new way of living inspired by creative communities and collective experiences at its core. Starting with the basics, it offers shared spaces (event space, living room, dining room and other areas for socializing), a sauna (kind of socializing, too), small kitchen (no stove!), laundry room, roof terraces and a backyard, hot desks and more. Using this space to bring everyone together, we are creating collaborative and fun environments that expose members to new people, new ideas and new experiences.
Specifically, what kind of common spaces do you have?
We have a big living room where we watch movies and dine together, a little kitchen, a huge backyard with a grill, sauna and laundry room, roof terrace and of course our gem - an enormous space inside of a building that used to be a church - get access to all our events in there through our membership!
Who is co-living for?
If you’re a native San Franciscan, it’s your new scene. If you’re new to San Francisco, it’s your home away from home. If you're an entrepreneur, it’s your future network. Co-living is for anyone who values the 3 C’s: community, creativity and convenience.
