There are two ways to access the Work Hard Pittsburgh community and facilities:
Cooperative Member – Work Hard Pittsburgh, LLC is cooperatively owned. Cooperative Members earn units over time through their participation, service, and cash contribution. Membership in the Work Hard Pittsburgh Co-op is governed by our Operating Agreement. Generally, co-op members have access to value adding services in addition to access to facilities.
Coworker – A coworker at Work Hard Pittsburgh has full access to facilities and site resources. Coworkers DO NOT earn units of Work Hard Pittsburgh, LLC.
Both types of use provide 24/7 access to common areas located inside of facilities. Dedicated space is available for additional fees.
Here’s a handy table to help you understand the difference.

Please consider the differences carefully before choosing which type of membership you want:
Sorry, we don’t accept new coop members in October, November, or December. Come back in January of 2018. You can still join Work Hard PGH as a coworker by clicking the other button.
