A Comprehensive Guide to Getting CoWorking Spaces in UAE Free Zones

Co-working spaces offer numerous advantages for growing businesses. Here is what you need to know about getting a co-working space in Dubai UAE Free Zone.

Published on
June 9, 2023

Businesses across the globe have adopted coworking spaces due to their cost-effectiveness and collaboration benefits. Such spaces are especially popular among small businesses that have yet to obtain a dedicated office for their operations.

If you have recently started a business in the UAE’s free zones, you might be wondering about coworking spaces in the area. In this guide, we will go over everything you need to know about getting a coworking space in the UAE Free Zone.

Can Anyone Use a CoWorking Space in the UAE Free Zone?

One of the advantages of owning a business in the UAE Free Zone is that you don’t actually need an office to run your operations. However, many businesses may still need a workspace where employees can gather and perform day-to-day activities.

This is where coworking spaces come in. Such spaces are open to anyone that is performing legal business activities and is willing to abide by the space’s rule.

Considerations to Make When Choosing a CoWorking Space in UAE Free Zone

Some considerations to keep in mind when choosing between coworking spaces in UAE Free Zones include:


Your coworking space’s location is incredibly important as it will impact the ease with which your employees can reach it. If you choose a space that is too far from residential areas, your employees will take a long time getting to and returning from work each day. This can also lead to higher transportation costs, which may discourage employees from working for your business.

Size and Popularity

Your coworking space should also be a sufficient size that doesn’t restrict your activities. For example, the space should be large enough to accommodate all your computers and other equipment.

It is also vital for the space not to feel overcrowded due to other businesses using it. A large coworking space might end up being unsuitable if employees from five or six other businesses are using it alongside yours.

Services and Management

A good coworking space will also have efficient management. This includes on-site staff that can help you and your employees with issues related to the internet or utilities.

It can be difficult to learn about a coworking space’s management quality beforehand, so it is important to look up reviews before choosing the space.


Coworking spaces vary greatly in price, depending on their location, luxury level, and services. A coworking space located in a luxurious part of the Free Zone and with a nice view will cost far more to rent than a less-luxurious-looking coworking space near the ground floor.

In this situation, you need to consider your budget and determine which features are absolutely necessary for your business and choose a space accordingly.
