Technical.ly's 2024 guide to coworking spaces in Philadelphia is underwritten by Mindspace. This story was independently reported and unless noted, not reviewed before publication.

More people are working in person, which means coworking in Philadelphia is making a comeback, too. 

If you’re a remote worker looking to change it up with your work space or a startup founder looking for community, there are options. Philly has no shortage of coworking and creator spaces for you to consider. Several are designed specifically for desk work and meetings, while others add makerspaces. Some are full-blown community-focused organizations. 

Technical.ly scoured the city to round up some of the top locations. Here are 21 coworking spaces in and around Philly, from national chains like WeWork to locally grown organizations like Indy Hall.
