Finding a space where youcan peacefully study can be quite a challenge, especially when everyone is crowding the library and spaces inside the campus can be really noisy. Trying to focus with all the distractions outside is no easy feat.
This might be the reason why a lot of co-working spaces have been on the rise in universities and colleges around Metro Manila. Co-working spaces offer a safe air-conditioned environment, with the stable internet connection, free-flowing drinks and snacks, and some books and board games for entertainment –perfect for everyday study sessions.
Seeing the need for such a space, the minds behind 933 Co-Working MNL worked to build one of U-Belt’s first co-working spaces. And just recently, they have opened their newest and largest branch, 933 Creatives located at 1038 G.M. Tolentino Street, Sampaloc, Manila.
933 Creatives is a new outlet for the creative minds, where students can be inspired to study without emptying their wallets. The newest branch is the home of the creative people. It can accommodate more people, and their additional facilities can help creative students and professionals in their careers.
Co-owner and Business Development Director Mark Carlo De Guzman narrates that he and his partners saw the need of co-working space in the area, especially near University of Santo Tomas (UST), so they opened their first-ever branch November 2017.
