This isn’t your everyday Terms of Service.

We’re innovative community. Please read this thoroughly and keep it. It will answer most of your questions.

I/O Spaces, LLC: The Members are the people, coworkers, groups and community. The Space is the building located at 8222 Georgia Avenue. We are a gathering of people finding a way to work better together, focusing on innovation and community. The members of I/O Spaces share a fundamental desire to live and work flexibly, be social, help one another and welcome everyone into the community.

Our Values

How to Input into Our Community:

  • Be yearning for interaction.
  • Be willing to introduce yourself, make friends and help.
  • Be ready to participate in impromptu and planned events.
  • Be eager to help everyone feel proud of our space and the people in it.
  • Be prepared for serendipity.

Your Responsibilities (I/O Spaces RULES! 😉

I/O Spaces is quite different from your average working environment. We’re not a 24/7 serviced or fully staffed office, and the following things help us keep our space accessible. In order to keep things ticking nicely, here are some essentials we ask everyone to be mindful of when using the space.
  • You understand that all amenities provided by I/O Spaces, including but not limited to opening hours, availability of a particular working area, coffee, use of the printer, or availability of the Internet are to be deemed as additional privileges of membership and are subject to change without notice.
  • You understand that your use of The Space may on occasion be disrupted. This may include, but is not limited to: (i) the offering of events or Services on the premises that are not included in the standard membership and that may require additional fees to attend or use, and (ii) the need to move to another work area and under rare circumstances to vacate the premises entirely. I understand that I/O Spaces will do its best to announce to the member community in advance of any known changes or disruptions to member access to The Space or to the use of Services.
  • Bring problems with plumbing, electrical, HVAC, roof, flooding, broken keypads, natural disasters, etc. to the attention of a staff member.
  • Never give out I/O Spaces Access Cards to anyone.
  • Learn how to reset the Internet Wireless router and use this as a first defense against an internet outage.
  • Pay your membership dues within 5 days of receiving your monthly invoice. I/O Spaces will not chase you down. Put it in your calendar.
  • Engage in meaningful greetings. Pop in and out of all areas and offices to connect with one another.
  • Equipment and professional liability is your own responsibility (our insurance can’t cover it). Ask your insurance provider for “renter’s insurance.”
  • Cleaning up after yourself, washing your dishes and tidying up is everyone’s responsibility. We work together to maintain a space we feel proud of.
  • Leave the spaces as you found them, or in better shape. (This includes cleaning up after your guests.)
  • I/O Spaces is dog-friendly for polite and well-behaved pups only. See the Canine Membership addendum below.
  • Anyone who behaves in a manner that is destructive to the Space or the Members may be asked to leave. If anyone in our Space makes you feel uncomfortable, bring it to a community manager’s attention right away.
  • Be responsible and respectful with your internet usage. No bit-torrent, porn or illegal activities. Respect other people’s privacy, confidentiality, safety, property and data. If the law comes looking for you, we will give you up immediately.
  • The last member out of each space is responsible for closing doors, shutting off lights and firmly closing all keycard-equipped doors.
  • A bike rack is located in the lobby area next to the stairs.
  • If you can’t use all of your allotted coworking days in a week, those days can be used within your invoice month but do not carry over to the next month.
  • I/O Spaces members will usually sign for other members’ packages, but it isn’t guaranteed. Plan accordingly.
