Surge South Tacoma





Welcome To Surge South Tacoma

Surge Coworking helps individuals and small businesses to reach their full potential by providing office space and an inspiring community of like-minded business people.

Coworking at Surge is a flexible and affordable option for people who are just starting out and need a professional space to take meetings and grow their business; who are feeling isolated in a home office and wishing for a little human interaction to break up the day; who work for themselves so they can make their own hours, but their productivity suffers without structure; who just need a space to get work done without distractions that keep them from focusing on their goals.

Surge offers multiple workspace areas, meeting rooms, fast fiber internet, free local coffee, mail service, printer, office supplies, networking events and more, included with every membership.

In addition to office space, what makes our coworking space special is the community. Startups, entrepreneurs, freelancers, remote workers, nonprofits, students and more from a variety of industries work side by side, giving you the opportunity to network and socialize throughout the day. Inspire each other with your journeys, team up on a business project, refer clients--the possibilities are endless.

Whether you’re a solopreneur, dynamic duo, or small- to mid-sized team, we can help you find a home base for your business at Surge Coworking.

We are so happy to have our third location in the vibrant South Tacoma neighborhood! As a Tacoma-owned business, we chose this location because we want to help revitalize the South Tacoma business district and become an asset for the people who work and live here. We strive to connect the local business community both through coworking and community engagement.



Located in the heart of South Tacoma Way, enjoy the culture, the shopping and the drinks available to you in this vibrant neighborhood.


All our members have access to our shared working spaces. Relax, meeting new people and get work done wherever the inspiration strikes.



Sometimes you need a space all to yourself for a bit.  Book one of our meeting rooms, free to all members, for your next meeting, to record your podcast, or take that video call.  Whatever you need, we're here to help.

Alice Lubic

Community Manager

Alice earned her B.A. in Spanish Language and Translation from Bard College in 2015 before moving to New York City. It only took a single visit to Tacoma, however, to realize she found her real home. Nurtured by her liberal arts background, she has a curious mind, a quick sense of humor, and a sincere desire to help people. Alice's top 3 favorite things are crossword puzzles, dogs with floppy ears, and going to Point Defiance early in the morning.




"Initially, I came to SURGE to get away from my wife’s three cats. After the fifteenth time they ran across my keyboard and messed up a piece of content I was working on, I knew it was time for my own space. Coffee shops were an option, but I got tired of drinking a gallon of coffee every day and I didn’t like leaving my laptop unattended when I had to use the bathroom (it was so much coffee). I saw an ad for SURGE and called them up for a tour. The Community Manager showed me around, and I signed up right away. For the price, the amenities you get at surge are the best deal in Tacoma. My revenue has grown 10x since I joined in February 2016, a large part of that due to the professional atmosphere, the location, and the support at SURGE. If you want to take your business to the next level, SURGE has the tools to help you do it. When you take your tour, stop by and say ‘hi.’"

"I've been working at SURGE Tacoma for a little over 2 years now and love it! I enjoy showing up every day to get things done and grow my business!"

"I just wanted to reach out and thank you for setting up SURGE. being at surge helped me build confidence and work in an efficient space and I do not think I would have grown as much as I have in the last year and a half it was not for being at surge."

"​For me - coming to surge is my getaway. I can’t imagine being secluded at home and trying to work with the kids. all moms that work at home should try it! even just once a week 😊"


"I loved my time there with you and look forward to reconnecting with you again in the future!...thank you so much for the time I spent there and for having such a great environment to work in!"



"I have been a SURGE member since early 2016. having a nice workspace, outside of my home essential for me. having a community of people to connect with professionally and personally makes it an enjoyable place to be. I recommend SURGE Tacoma to anyone looking for coworking in the area. "

"SURGE has been incredible. I honestly initially chose it because I needed a mailing address for my business, but now, the value I get out of being a member is worth every penny. As a Cafe member, I love the flexibility with where I work. My current favorite spot overlooks the city, and as the sun sets on Mt. Rainier there’s just no better way to end a work day. I also love knowing that as my business grows, my membership can grow with me into a dedicated desk or office. The monthly member events are great for meeting new people and seeing the diversity of businesses in the space. I would recommend SURGE to anyone currently based out of their home who needs a place to get work done besides their couch - entrepreneurs, students, authors, artists, anyone. Although working in sweatpants at home is nice on occasion, I’ve found that my productivity is boosted significantly when I’m at SURGE."

Will Manzanares

Owner, Will Talks Biz

"I chose SURGE because it was local and central. You guys were nicer than some of the other places, personality wise and when I saw the prices in Seattle, I was like, that is ridiculous. The price is right for what I am trying to do. I also thought, wouldn’t my skill set help most of the start-ups here? I have been so used to doing things out of my house, this helps separate home from work. I wanted to experience a coworking space, and it is better than a coffee shop. I also chose it because you are more flexible than other spaces. Coworking spaces are for those who need to be driven by going to a work place, and they can’t separate their home life and their work life."

Terrilski Davis

Owner, Platoon 720 Credit and Business Formations

"I chose SURGE after discovering its existence online while searching for office space outside of my home. I needed not just an office building, or coworking space, but a community. Hands down!! SURGE provides that community for business owners in any industry to come and feel welcomed in an environment that’s conducive for growth without threat of competition, but collaboration and genuine networks. I would totally recommend it for any startup business that needs to expand not just their company but their productivity with peace of mind."

Jayson Owens

Financial Advisor with Bright Road Wealth Management

"I chose Surge because my previous “executive office” management company was literally the worst! Stuffy and unworkable. I called Surge on Friday afternoon at 4:30pm looking for conference space after finding out that my previous company had canceled my bookings for the next week! They were able to get me signed up and saved all those meetings!

Since the beginning the staff has been so helpful and flexible. I work a lot of evenings and weekends and having access to the building has made my business possible! I love the energy here and the opportunity for spontaneous conversation in the kitchen."
