General terms and conditions

Acceptance of the terms of use

By accessing, browsing and/or using the European Academic Coworking Network website (henceforth, the "website"), you agree to these Terms. In addition, when using certain EACN services, you are also subject to the rules or FAQs applicable to those services, which may be posted and amended from time to time.

EACN Membership

Membership Conditions

Membership to the EACN is eligible for members (students and staff) that are members of a higher education institution (HEI) that has a coworking space that is either run or affiliated to it and which is a member space of the EACN network. Membership and usage of the EACN is free of charge. Users of the EACN are entitled to use a workspace in a EACN member coworking space. In turn, each EACN member space needs to offer at least one free workspace for students affiliated to a HEI that has an EACN member space. You must be at least 18 years of age to become an EACN user.

The EACN cannot guarantee that each EACN member coworking space has an unoccupied workspace at each point in time. It may be the case that a workspace is already taken by another EACN user.

Users cannot transfer workspace reservations to others, including other EACN users.

Membership Duration

Your EACN membership is active as long as you are actively affiliated to your HEI. Hence, as long as you have an active e-mail address that affiliates you to your HEI. Membership expires once your affiliation to your HEI expires, e.g., through completion of your studies or termination of your work contract with your HEI. The membership does not end, if you decide to temporarily interrupt your HEI affiliation (e.g., during a leave semester). However, it does end if you end your studies.

Other Fees

Basic membership to the EACN and workspace usage in an EACN member coworking space is free of charge. However, the EACN member coworking space may impose additional fees for services other than workspace provision (e.g., the use of tools, food and beverage consumption, meeting room reservations).

Termination of your EACN membership

With using the EACN, you agree that we at own discretion and without cause, can terminate your EACN account (or any part thereof) with or use of the site and remove and dispose of all or part of your account or any content uploaded by you at any time.

EACN member workspace waivers and conditions

EACN users that book a workspace in an EACN member space agree that they adhere to the terms and conditions and other rules and conditions of the EACN member space they are using. EACN users further agree that they may be expelled or temporarily or permanently banned from the EACN member space or any parts of it if they fail to oblige to these rules and conditions.
