The Switchboard is a 24/7 coworking site, in the Fountain Square district of Indianapolis, focused on connection, collaboration, and creation within the growing community. Located at 735 Shelby Street in downtown Indianapolis, it offers meeting spaces and 19 private offices.


Parking in the Fountain Square area can be a bit challenging. There are 8 designated spots next to The Switchboard.

You will also find parking across the street in the Budget Tire lot and a block down the street at Calvary Tabernacle.
