Hooray! We're so glad you want to visit. Noisebridge is a space open to pretty much anyone! We welcome anybody that likes to tinker and hack on things, and are generally nice. On average we don't appreciate people looking for a half way house to sleep in, steal things, or looking for free beer and people to annoy. Read here for more Visitor_advice on our culture and some suggestions on how to interface with it.

Noisebridge is located on the 3rd floor of 2169 Mission. There is a staircase up and an accessible elevator as well. The elevator can be a little persnickety but it has a bell that rings up into the space for assistance if needed. More Accessibility info available as well. Read on for ways to get into the building.

You can also check out some more info on transit and Getting_Here.

How Do I Get Into 2169 Mission?

If you don't have any keys to the space, simply press the door bell on the right of the gate labeled "Noisebridge" with tiny text. If there's someone in the space (almost certainly true unless you're arriving in the middle of the night) they'll simply buzz you in.

There are also physical and electronic keys that can be used to access the space, including phone Apps. Read on.

How to buzz the gate

To open the door through the local Noisebridge network at 2169 Mission street (not accessible through the internets):

More info about our culture and some suggestions on how to interface with it available here: Visitor_advice . Collectivist anarchy is often strange to people who are accustomed to authoritarian structures, and many visitors are initially confused on how things work or who they should talk to about things.
