The home for changemakers
The co.space is a global network of co-living spaces for world-changers. The flagship home is based in State College, PA and is home to 20 residents comprising a mix of students and young professionals. The home is in the heart of downtown State College and a 5 minute walk to Penn State campus. The residents living there have been carefully selected as some of the most driven, passionate and curious individuals we could find who share a passion for entrepreneurship, sustainability and innovation (amongst other things). For more information about the home, please visit www-thecospace-com.
Located in the home is a single room dedicated for visitors. This room allows others to connect to the home during short stays and contribute their knowledge, skills, and wisdom to the community. The room is 400 sq ft and includes a twin daybed, pop-up trundle, desk and closet space. The room has a private bathroom on the second floor (and as you can see from the pictures, it is a bathroom unlike most you have probably used). The room is themed as a cave and the stairway leading to your private room is designed to resemble the inside of a mining shaft.
This is a rare and unique opportunity for Penn State alumni, guest professors, and visitors to State College who hope to connect with some of the top students and young professionals in the area and get a glimpse of where the community is heading.
As a guest of the home, you have full use of the kitchen and any communal food. The kitchen is fully stocked with commercial-grade equipment and we occasionally have large community dinners - so if the timing aligns, you are welcome to join us!
We do everything we can to make your (email hidden).space an enjoyable one. If you are looking to make connections with members of the community or faculty at Penn State, we are happy to offer our network to you. When you arrive, we'll show you the house and then help you get situated. Often times if you are looking for a good place to eat, someone in the house will be more than likely to go with you and show you around.
The accommodations were as advertised, super clean and well heated (temps dipped to single digits during my visit). The room decor is late 19th century mining. The sink design is awesome. The stalactite shower is EPIC. The impromptu City Of The Sun concert in the living room was MEMORABLE. The friendships forged are ETERNAL.
No noticeable street noise. Walking distance to Penn State campus and downtown area (bars & restaurants). No need to drive anywhere. There is a convenience store at the corner of the block.
What you should know:
- You will share the space with Penn State students that will go on to change the world
- The house owners, Spud and Christian, are committed community builders. They are rock star hosts.
- Come prepared for rich and engaging discussion!!!

What a wonderful experience. The Cave was an awesome room to stay in. Lots of great thoughts were put into creating the theme. I would spend another weekend there, if I could get the time off to go.
Hope you enjoy your stay at Co.Space "the Cave".
What an incredible space. Spud and the denizens of co.space have created an memorable and unique experience that has all the facilities you would ever need, with a host of unique touches. Was fantastic to meet some of the other residents and share their passion. If I'm ever passing through PA again, I'll be back.
The cave is very comfortable, the housemates are passionate, and your host Spud will likely help make your State College visit waaay better than it otherwise would've been.
Clean, comfortable space, neato cave bathroom, free startup advice, and Spud introduced me to some PSU faculty I was trying to get hold of! Totally didn't have to do that, but he knows everyone in that town. If any house deserves your $100, his does.
Spud has a warm personality and his passion for the co. space and what it is about is infectious. He was attentive to our needs as guests and made us feel comfortable in the fun guest space. The other house members were all also a joy to be around. We would most definitely stay here again!
(email hidden).Space was incredible. Not only are the accommodations super unique with a delightful surprise at every turn, but the community of people that live there are inspiring, doing work on all sorts of crazy projects. It's also great walking distance to restaurants and Penn State's campus. I certainly won't be staying at a hotel in State College anytime soon.
