A hot desk is your on-demand workspace. When you enroll in Flatiron School’s Online Software Engineering or Online Data Science course, you’ll receive a one-year WeWork hot desk membership included in your tuition. With access to your local WeWork, you can work wherever you want — and enjoy all the complimentary amenities — and join a dynamic, bustling community of people who are changing things.
With a WeWork hot desk membership you’ve got the perfect opportunity to learn in a space that inspires productivity and focus. Simply head to your local WeWork and choose any open seat in your location’s co-working areas to begin your workday. While choosing to study online gives you ultimate flexibility, a hot desk provides amenities that your home or local coffee shop might not have, including high-speed WiFi, 24/7 building access, craft beer on draft, conference rooms, phone booths… plus that fancy fruit water and micro-brewed coffee to help you focus.
“It really makes the online learning experience feel more personal and really helped keep me motivated. It really made the whole program more engaging and exciting, and helped me see it through to the end.“
With access to the WeWork’s global community, you’ll surround yourself with other passionate professionals who can offer advice, support, and ideas as you make your way through your online coursework. Network, connect, and collaborate through in-person events and the WeWork Member Network. A new hot desk seat each day is an exciting opportunity to change things and meet new people, while always having the peace of mind of a place to plug in and learn.
“The hot desk aspect of the Online program was a huge contributor to me being able to complete the program as quickly as I did, and to get hired as quickly as I did.”

In short: WeWork shares our vision of what a better world looks like – a world where education does in fact enable the pursuit of a better life. Where education provides people with a life that they love, not just an employable skill. A world where reinvesting in your education and being a student for life is accessible to everyone. And like Flatiron School, WeWork believes that our missions to change the way people learn, work, and live aren’t possible without a key ingredient: community.
By joining WeWork, we’re excited to accelerate our growth and change the lives of more students by expanding both our In-Person and Online programs as well as developing new opportunities and formats for people to learn new skills and love what they do.
Flatiron School will continue operating, enhancing, and expanding our flagship in-person and online web development programs. As we grow with WeWork, we’ll be announcing new campuses across new cities in the coming months. Longer term, we’ll work with WeWork not only on new venues for our programs but also new educational models and courses, as well as new opportunities for the WeWork member community.
Yes, Flatiron School will continue expanding both our online and in-person course offerings. In the future, we’re excited to explore opening campuses in additional cities and to continue experimenting with blended learning models – combining the most effective elements of our in-person and online approaches.
Expanding access to our education has always been and will continue to be an incredibly important part of our mission. We remain committed to providing scholarships for women and underrepresented groups in tech as we grow – and look forward expanding these efforts with WeWork’s support.
We built and grew Flatiron School on a foundation of student outcomes first. As we join WeWork and continue to grow, putting our students and their outcomes first will remain our focus above all else. We’re excited about the new opportunities to educate more students in more ways, but we will not be compromising our approach towards admissions, curriculum, instruction, and career services as we expand.
