What is Ampersand Coworking?

Ampersand Coworking is located right in the heart of downtown Marquette, in the UP Masonic Center. At 5,200 square feet, we have plenty of space for your business to operate alongside a variety of other talents. There are nine private offices, fifteen semi-private desks, and twenty-five open workstations available to rent by the day, week, month or year. Ampersand users have access to all amenities including conference rooms, print services, community programming, mail service as well as all the coffee you can drink. Ampersand is

so much more than just a space - it's a collaborative environment, curated around community. It provides affordable alternatives for modern businesses to call home.

Ampersand Coworking is a project of the Marquette Chamber of Commerce. Using the traditional strengths of Chambers, networking & cost sharing, we are building something that serves our members, and the community, while ensuring Marquette stays in sync with the modern economy.

Who's on Board

As a new business owner I’m excited about the opportunity to have a work space downtown. Ampersand is the perfect alternative to renting a full office space for a sole proprietor like myself. It will give me a place to meet with clients and get some work done in a professional environment. I’m really looking forward to Ampersand’s opening.

Marquette is a community of sharing, cooperation, innovation and inspiration – all of the things Ampersand will be.  But most importantly these characteristics will be shared by the people of Ampersand; they will make the space vibrant and inclusive. This is an exciting time for Marquette!

The Food Coop’s administrative space was underbuilt in our new facility. Having Ampersand as an office outlet for my creative staff and even for me when I need a break from frequent interruption to complete planning and strategy work, will be a boon to our productivity. I am looking forward to this downtown asset coming to fruition. The return on investment should be seen quickly as Ampersand moves fifty or so new businesses to downtown Marquette into a single location.

A vital part of doing professional business is building personal relationships. The U.P., in particular, is a great place to do business because of the kind of people that live here. What better way to find opportunities to meet new people, and find new ways to work with those you already know, than to be a part of something like Ampersand?

The functional diversity of this workplace is exciting. It is not just a series of small rooms where people disappear to labor over a screen, but a place to come together, share ideas, and build community.

~ Daneille Steffey

I work from home and live on the outskirts of town.  I’ve worked out of coffee shops and the library when I come into Marquette, but often have had to drive to multiple locations to find space work.  Ampersand gives me the perfect environment for getting work done; it is exactly what I need to make my business make sense.
