Noisebridge is a hackerspace. To help facilitate excellent hacking, the membership community would like someone to vouch for you.

"Ok, so how do I get in?"

The buzzer is the middle button in the group of three to the right of the payphone. It may have a Noisebridge logo sticker underneath it.

Now that you've been buzzed in, how do you stay in? An excellent question! There's a few ways:


Be a brand new visitor to the space and/or attend a Tuesday night meeting (the two easiest ways!)


Be a vouchsafed guest of a Regular Member or an Associate Member (the next easiest way)

  • Find out if a Regular or Associate Member is currently present at the space to vouch for you
  • Ask the coordinator of the event you plan on attending to vouch for you
  • Ask your friend who is a Regular or Associate Member to go with you to the space
  • Go on the NB discussion mailing list or IRC chat and ask if a Regular or Associate Member will go with you
  • Go to the space and ask the person who lets you in to vouch for you (no guarantee!)


Become an Associate Member


Become a Regular Member



Please note that Associate Membership and guests needing member hosts is new at Noisebridge as of November 2013.
