It's in the nature of the human being to face challenges.

Where is it?

Being focused on community, we knew that the Anvil couldn't be located in just any building. The historic University Church building, first built in 1939 and added onto in 1959, has integrated itself in the Purdue and West Lafayette community in a way that few other buildings can. We knew it would be a perfect fit for our needs and the needs of our members.

Located a block from campus and a short walk from Chauncey,

the Anvil is a prime spot to come work on your project or business.

Who visits?

The Anvil is home to advisors, mentors, entrepreneuers, freelancers and all kinds of people who love working with amazing people.

With 7 startups and over 60 members calling the Anvil home,

it is easy to find the kind of people you are looking for. Visit the Anvil and you can find co-founders, developers, designers and legal advisors — everything you need to get your idea off the ground.

Why coworking?

Maybe you are working on a side project. Maybe you are starting a new company. The important thing is that now

being a solo entrepreneur doesn't have to mean being alone.

The Anvil provides more than just a desk at which to work. These days that's not enough. These days you need more. Community is the new cubicle. Let's work together, better.
