A culture of collaboration

With attitudes toward traditional models of work changing, particularly in the wake of COVID-19, along with the boom of small business and start-ups across the region, it’s important that Newcastle offers a range of flexible options for these scaling local businesses. 

Newcastle is home to a range of co-working hubs that offer fledgling businesses an affordable office space as well as invaluable access to established networks and the ability to meet like-minded people.

Below is a rundown on some of the co-working spaces available in the Newcastle LGA.

The Roost Creative

Level 1 152/160 Hunter Street, Newcastle

Starting life in 2010, The Roost is Newcastle’s oldest co-working space.

Catering primarily to creatives, The Roost helps Newcastle creatives and start-ups grow their businesses in a supportive, social work environment.

As part of its commitment to launching Newcastle talent, The Roost also runs an annual scholarship program to help burgeoning local creatives turn their passion into a sustainable business.

Crown Street Studio

Level 1 Suite 1/4 Crown Street, Newcastle

One of Newcastle’s newer co-working spaces, Crown Street Studio opened in 2018.

Integrated Innovation Network (I2N)

376 Hunter Street, Newcastle

Started by The University of Newcastle (although no affiliation is needed to become a member), I2N Hub wants to help take innovation to the next level.

Beyond providing a co-working space, I2N runs regular programs and courses to help develop businesses and ideas. No matter what stage a startup is at, I2N has programs and connections to help advance its journey.
