About George Mason University

George Mason University (Mason) is in Fairfax County – 17 miles outside Washington, D.C. – on a picturesque, wooded, 677-acre campus. Our event and conference housing offerings include residence halls (room types are a mix of traditional rooms, suites, and apartments), with 24-hour customer service desks and amenities including free use of laundry facilities, Wi-Fi, and cable. Guests have access to free shuttle servicer around campus, and free local bus service to local shopping, dining, and local METRO stations.

Mason’s Housing and Residence Life Conference & Event department provides housing for groups ranging from 1 (guest housing) to 500. Typically, our residence halls are available from the last week of May through the first week of August. Our accommodation room styles are priced to fit every event budget. In addition to our housing accommodations, we have 30 meeting spaces within the residence halls for meetings, trainings, and social events. 

We work closely with our partners in the Office of University Events (University Events), which specializes in conference and event services outside the campus housing component. University Events has a rich history of coordinating events of all kinds – campaign rallies, gubernatorial debates, association conferences, Nobel Prize receptions, and much more. Whether you are planning a small meeting at one of Mason’s conference rooms or a performance for as many as 10,000, the campus has access to event spaces guaranteed to impress. University Events offers professional coordination services for clients planning an event at Mason and can assist with logistical support such as: budget preparation, scheduling and setting up meeting space, handling hotel room block arrangements, food and beverage service selection, equipment rental, and everything that goes into streamlining the perfect event on campus.

Our core values (hospitality, satisfaction, and uniqueness) guide us as we help our clients achieve their desired outcomes with a successful, stress-free, memorable event.
