Locus Rules

Locus is a community space.

  • Be helpful and show respect to other members and guests: answer the door, sign for a package, offer visitors a cup of coffee, give managers a call if someone needs help you can't provide, replace a broken light bulb, water a dying plant, clean a stray dish, etc.
  • Organize events, bring a plant or picture from home to brighten up the space, draw a painting on the wall, or otherwise do what you would to make your own office nicer (after checking with the management just in case, of course).

No smoking, including eCigarettes.

  • Do NOT smoke on...
    • The balconies on the floor below Locus (those are private)
    • On the sidewalk in front of the building
  • You may smoke in the courtyard, but please...
    • Away from non-smokers
    • Always put your cigarette butts in the garbage or an ashtray

Mind the noise.

  • If your voice carries, do not make calls or have live conversations for more than TWO minutes in the main space (except in the kitchen area during coffee break).
  • If other members or managers are being too loud for too long, kindly let them know.
  • Locus is a coworking space, not a library: Quiet & respectful conversations are welcome. 

Want to use or leave a monitor? 

Read the "monitor rules" on the main bulletin board.

One of the last ones out? Close up shop.

  • Turn off all the lights in areas where other people aren't working, including the power cord switches.
  • Make sure the air conditioner unites in the main space and the meeting room are turned off.
  • Close all windows in areas no longer being used by other members. 
  • ALWAYS close the loft skylights if you work in the lofts. 
  • Make sure the windows are closed and lights turned of in the bathrooms and by the elevators.
  • Make sure the door to the space is closed. 
  • Very last one out? Turn off the main power switch in the entryway.
  • Locus’s ability to allow 24/7 access depends on it.


  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Recycle

There are recycling bins under the window next to the kitchen corner.

If you have suggestions or questions regarding the rules, please let a Community Manager know.

These rules may change as needed.
