Locus Rules

Locus is a community space.

  • Be helpful and show respect to other members and guests.
  • Clean up after yourself (including your dishes) so other members don’t have to.
  • Keep to your half of shared desks so folks looking for a spot to work feel welcome.
  • If you’re in the mood, organize an event, bring a plant from home, or do other things to make the office feel like home (after checking with a manager).

No smoking in the coworking space, including eCigarettes.

In addition, 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 (or here).

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 (here’s a light-switch map!).
  • Make sure the air conditioner units 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 off in the bathrooms and by the elevators.
  • Make sure the door entrance to Locus is closed.
  • 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.
