Some of our spaces and facilities are temporarily unavailable to ensure safe physical distancing.

Housed in the Ideas Quarter at State Library Victoria, our coworking space has two areas: StartSpace and StartSpace Loft. The StartSpace ground floor is now open, with limited space for members to book. The Loft will remain closed for now.

The spaces are exclusive to members, who can enter using a security access card.

At full capacity,our ground floor has space for 125 members at a time, with our paid StartSpace Loft area available for up to 48 members. We currently have limited space available to ensure safe physical distancing.


Both floors offer seating, hot desks, wi-fi, whiteboards, a bookable meeting room and access to hearing loop.

Meeting rooms aren’t currently available to book, and you’ll need to stay in your allocated seat for the duration of your visit. 

Please note: computers and monitors
aren’t provided, so we encourage you to bring your own device and connect to our free wi-fi.

StartSpace Loft also offers

  • kitchenette equipped with fridge, microwave, dishwasher and coffee machine
  • day lockers
  • two soundproof Skype booths for private calls and teleconferencing
  • printing and scanning facilities
  • ample seating: because membership is capped at 48, there will always be a seat available.
