Community Coworking

Home is not for work. Coffee shops are distracting. We have what you need to succeed professionally!

With the goal of providing the best possible workspace for professionals, the CIE has created a community coworking space inside the SLO HotHouse that is designed to enhance productivity, collaboration and success for students as well as professionals.

With month-to-month membership plans,  24/7 workspace and all the office amenities you could ask for, coworking at the CIE HotHouse is the perfect place for professionals in various fields, industries, and organizations. You do not need to be a startup or affiliated with Cal Poly to become a member.

Located in heart of downtown San Luis Obispo, the newly renovated 15,000 square foot location boasts stylish open seating, dedicated office space, sleek private offices, meeting rooms and a spacious lounge. Membership plans have been created to reduce your costs and increase your productivity.

“Coworking at the HotHouse has been instrumental in engaging our business with students and the wider SLO community. Being surrounded by an atmosphere of innovation and out-of-the-box thinkers has enabled us to ideate concepts we would not have thought possible before. It’s been a huge asset towards our success.”

— John Osumi, CEO of Bishop Peak Technologies

“I joined the HotHouse as a coworker when I moved to town in February 2016 and overall it has been great. The workspace is comfortable, the people friendly, and the amenities (including Wi-Fi, conference rooms, storage areas, and a communal kitchen) provide for a great coworking experience. In a nutshell, it has everything you need, plus good company. I would highly recommend signing up to cowork here. ”
