Mason Dining is proud to announce that the Mason Club, Mason’s faculty and staff dining room, is scheduled to reopen Tuesday, Sept. 7, in a new location, the Blackstone Room at the Southside dining hall.

The Mason Club will provide faculty and staff an inviting, comfortable and private eating experience. Mason Club members will be able to choose from Southside’s variety of culinary options, ranging from soups, salads, specialty deli sandwiches, homemade pasta, pizza, traditional grill options, vegan and vegetarian choices, daily entrees, allergen-friendly meals, and a full dessert bar.

Membership, which costs $25 per semester, is open to all Mason employees, and card access is available 24 hours a day. A dining room attendant will be present during lunch hours (11 a.m.–2 p.m. weekdays) to help with beverages and general needs. Food service will be mostly self-serve. Members will be able to purchase drinks, snacks or all-you-care-to-eat dining.

Payment options include debit/credit, Mason Money or Byte meal plans. Byte meal plans can be purchased via Mason Dining’s website and provide a cost-effective option, with per-meal prices as low as $7.40. Regular door prices will range between $9.25 and $11.25 for meals, with a $5 drink/snack option for someone looking for lighter fare. 

Reservations are not required; however, they are highly recommended since the space accommodates approximately 26 guests. Visit Yelp to reserve your table. The Mason Club will operate on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to rejoin the Mason Club via Mason’s Marketplace and enjoy the dining experience.
