Working from the Underscore VC Boston Office

Here is a quick primer on working from the Underscore VC office:

🏛️ 45 School Street Building Details

The schedule for the exterior doors is below:
Front Door: Open Monday-Friday 8:30am-5:00pm
Rear Door: Open Monday-Friday 7:00am-6:00pm
You must have a badge to enter the front and back door after hours.
Building elevators unlock around 6:00 am and the night cleaning crew locks them around 9:00 pm. Please do not leave anything behind after hours as you will be unable to retrieve items if the elevators are locked out.
Note: There is no weekend access to Underscore.

🪪 Key Card Access

If you regularly visit the Underscore office and require a badge, please notify Renee and/or Marco so we can order a card for you: or . This usually takes 2-3 days. Key cards will give you access to the Underscore VC office space as well as the building's front door.
(If you forget your key card, we can buzz you in remotely—please text or call via the numbers on the front door.)
*NOTE: Any portfolio company that has a departing team member should retrieve the existing badge from this employee and return it to Renee at Underscore.*

🖥️ Desk Seating

We have several open desks in the front open area adjacent to the kitchen/cafe area. We have a hot-desking reservation system accessible via the Robin booking platform, so please log into that portal and reserve the desk you’d like for the day. Robin will show you the configuration layout, and you can click on any of the desks available to book the one you prefer.

💼 Conference Rooms

We have several conference rooms located around the office for booking. We also have phone rooms near our front door available for hour-long (or less) calls that do not require booking. Please book the room you need via the Robin booking portal for the designated time and be courteous to others who need appropriate-sized meeting rooms. The office is becoming busier so we kindly ask our guests and visitors to book appropriately-sized spaces and be time-conscious about your reservations. Thank you!

📅 Robin Conference Room Booking System

If you’d like to book a meeting space, you can do this via our Robin booking system. Robin has descriptions and sizes of available rooms. Request access to the platform by emailing Renee. If you have a special need for an extended period, please contact Renee for assistance. (Please note that Mayor’s Office conference room needs permission to book.)
