George Mason University

Discover Mason

Mason is a university dedicated to engaging the world  — whether it's a remote village on the other side of the globe or right here in our own back yard. Mason Nation is about bringing people together to enrich everyone's lives.

Welcome to Mason Nation

Our campuses aren’t just for students. We consider ourselves part of the community, and we like it when our neighbors come to call. Visitor parking is available, and our campuses are accessible by public transportation. As a top-tier research university, center of excellence in business, economics, and international relations, and focal point for the arts, exciting things happen here every day.

Mason welcomes visitors from throughout the region and across the globe on a daily basis. We pride ourselves on our heritage and mandate as a public university. We encourage participation in many on-campus activities.

On any given week on one of our campuses, you'll find engaging intellectual chats, networking events, career resource activities, healthy recreation, children’s workshops and more.

For the latest news and updates, including closings for holidays and inclement weather, be sure to follow our calendar or sign up for Mason Alerts for emergency information.
