Coworking Rental Reimbursement

Shared workplaces in our region offer spouses and partners access to professional connections and dedicated office and meeting areas, facilitating community-building and work activity. As part of the College’s commitment to the success of independent professional activity, Williams underwrites some of the cost involved with use of a coworking space.

Specifically, any spouse or partner will be reimbursed for 50% of the cost of access or membership at any coworking space, not to exceed one full year.

Below are the main coworking spaces within a 30 minute drive of Williamstown. Each offers varied access, from hourly to monthly rental of space and equipment.
