How can I use ARC Club?
There are many different ways to enjoy ARC Clubs. You can become a Member for full-time, part-time and shared access to our workspace and activities. Day Passes are available when you’re just passing through - just contact the Club you want to work from for the day to arrange. Our Meeting Rooms can be hired by anyone. While The Homework Club in Homerton gives young people aged 17-25 the opportunity to use the space without charge every Thu & Fri / 4pm-7pm.
Is it hard to join?
We want to make ARC Clubs as easy as possible to use. Memberships are allocated on a first-come first-served basis and there is no joining fee.
Can I cancel my membership?
Life is unpredictable and ARC Club provides you with flexibility. All our plans operate on a monthly rolling basis. And can be cancelled up to one business day before they renew.
Can I renew my membership?
Your membership will keep rolling until you give notice.
How do I pay for things?
Membership can be paid for via direct debit or card through. Meeting rooms may be hired through the members portal or booked directly through the Club Team and paid for by card. ARC Canteens are cashless. We accept all major credit and debit cards to purchase food and drink.
Can my company pay for my membership?
Easily. We offer invoices for teams and individuals, made out directly to your employer.
Can my team use ARC Club?
Definitely! We offer the Household Plan for two people looking to split full-time access to ARC Club, or we have the Assembly Plan for whole teams looking to use ARC as their base. We also have Private Studios available should you want your own space. Contact email@example.com to find out more.
I work for myself – can I claim tax back?
We issue monthly invoices to help freelancers manage their tax returns.
What are your opening hours?
Our work hours are 8am-7pm in Homerton and 8.30am – 6pm in Camberwell Green. It’s a work-life balance thing.
Do you ever run out of desks?
We carefully manage numbers at ARC Club to ensure there are seats for members.
Can I bring guests?
Resident and Regular Members get free Guest Passes each month to bring friends or colleagues to bring into the workspace. Additional passes can be purchased for £20. Up to 2x guests may join you, free of charge, in the Canteen and in pre-booked meeting rooms (subject to room capacity and opening hours). ARC reserves the right to refuse entry to any guest.
Where do I sit?
Wherever works best for you. We offer different seats for different moods at ARC Club and there are no fixed desks. Ask a member of the team if you need help choosing where to sit.
Are there quiet spaces at ARC Clubs?
ARC Clubs contain designated solo work area (no pets, no calls, no food) available throughout opening hours, but we cannot guarantee a seat.
We also have bookable meeting rooms in each Club, and drop-in/out zoom booths for private meetings and calls.
Can I use my mobile phone?
Mobile phones can be used throughout ARC Clubs, with the exception of the solo work area. Private rooms can be booked for privacy and longer calls, or you can use our zoom booths for free.
What is your food & drink policy?
ARC Canteens serve grab-and-go food and beverages throughout the day. We can recommend local restaurants and cafes that offer exclusive discounts for our members. You’re welcome to bring pre-prepared food from home and a fridge and microwave are available in the space.
Can I light up in ARC Club?
No smoking or vaping of any kind is permitted inside ARC Club.
What’s your view on animals?
We love them! Well-behaved dogs may join you in the Canteen and in the social work areas. Trained service animals are welcome anywhere in the space.
What about babies?
ARC Club is an adult space. We’ll do what we can to help on the days when a little one is sick or childcare falls through. We have a space for nursing parents.
What does the events calendar look like?
Our curated programme of events is designed to inspire and support members, championing talent, ideas and initiatives rooted in the local area.
