The big list of co-working Spaces in Nigeria

492

If you are a freelancer or a small business owner and you need a work environment on a non-committal basis without the high cost associated with an annual rent package, co-working from a shared space might be what you need.

Co-working basically involves you working in a shared office where you are provided with a desk, high-speed internet, a shared kitchen ( or even a restaurant!), enough coffee, and some friendly but non-competitive banter in exchange for a monthly rental fee.

Co-working offices are not a common feature in Nigeria, and they are just beginning to spread across the city of Lagos. Co-working spaces in Lagos are a new corporate trend and are spread between the mainland and island, offering a creative place to work, meet clients and collaborate.

In this article, I provide you with all the locations where you can get co-working spaces and offices in Lagos and as an extension Nigeria. If there are any missing from the list please feel free to comment and we’ll add them to the original post.

Here are some co-working spaces in Nigeria with their address and details about each. To make it easy for you to find the co-working space of your choice and the details about it, I have arranged them all in alphabetical order. Click on a letter to jump to the co-working space(s) starting with that letter.
