Join a Community

The Work Commons is a community of work spaces offering the comfort of your living room with all of the technology and conveniences of a modern office building.

Think of it as a flexible work environment and a community of like minded people interested in propelling their businesses and ideas forward while having a little fun along the way.

The Work Commons has unique office space in downtown Newport, Vermont, steps away from the international Lake Memphremagog. Occupying two floors in the historic Montgomery Ward building, our work spaces range from open co-working, to private, most of which are available by the hour, day, month or longer.

Find Your Place and Your Pace

With high speed, fibre optic internet, you can accomplish what you need to in northern Vermont without the hustle and bustle of a large city. Take a break in The Phone Box, or hold a gathering in The Meeting room or Newport Room, complete with the latest in smart board technology.
