George Mason University

Our Campuses

Mason has three campuses in Fairfax, Arlington and Prince William Counties in Virginia and an international campus in Songdo, Korea. In addition, Mason operates a site in Loudoun County and has partnered with the Smithsonian Institution to offer a global conservation studies program at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia.


The Fairfax Campus consists of 677 wooded acres and is the principal center for undergraduate residence and life. The on-campus population is currently more than 6,000 and is expected to grow to 7,000 as new residential units are constructed. Our Fairfax Campus is also home to the Center for the Arts and the EagleBank Arena where numerous sporting and entertainment events take place year round.


Our most urban campus is in Arlington. It consists of three main buildings and is where the Antonin Scalia Law School, the Schar School of Policy and Government, and the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution are located. Most of the programs offered are at the graduate and professional levels.

Mason Korea

We recently opened a campus in Songdo, Korea, with a focus on economics. Students admitted through Mason Korea receive the same degree they would earn at one of our U.S. campuses, and spend their fourth and fifth semesters at our Fairfax Campus.
