workplace:

... a place of work as a setting or facility. The place of work of an employed person is simply where the job is performed. The phrase on the job is expanded by adding in the office or at the factory. Places of work also may be called job sites, work sites or work places.

A workstation is a workplace. A station is defined as a place equipped with the necessary tools and devices for performing one or more operations. The term workstation often implies that personnel are present or the specific location where one is assigned to do a job.

Computer users are likely to understand that workstation means a network terminal or desktop with the necessary peripherals to make it functional as a client machine. Some may expand the definition to mean an office cubicle. In a broad sense, the workstation is the physical location of computer equipment and facilities for performing operations that constitute a job for a person.
