Parking and Tranportation Update: Fall 2019

Posted: August 23, 2019 at 10:58 am

As the fall semester begins, Mason students, faculty, and staff are reminded that traffic on and around the Fairfax Campus greatly increases, especially during the first few weeks of classes. The following campus parking and transportation guide will help minimize potential parking and traffic delays.

A valid parking permit is required to park outside of visitor areas.

During the first few weeks of the semester, we suggest allowing an extra 30-45 minutes to arrive on campus. Though some parking spaces are more convenient to your destination than others, the Fairfax Campus has more than enough spaces to accommodate all vehicles. However, many General parking permit areas fill at peak class times.

At times during the morning, late afternoon, and early evenings, campus police cadets will be directing traffic around campus. Please be alert and follow the cadets’ directions.

New this fall:  There is a dismount zone from East Building south to Enterprise Hall. Golf carts are not permitted in the dismount zone and those using bikes, scooters, skateboards, or skates must dismount and walk. This is for the safety of all.
