George Mason University is Virginia’s largest public research university. Mason is recognized for its innovation and entrepreneurship, diversity, and accessibility. Some of the programs offered at the Arlington Campus include law, policy, international affairs, business, conflict analysis, and non-profit management.

In addition to its academic programs, Mason’s Arlington Campus offers a full-service conference center with experienced staff, space, equipment, and catering services. There’s over 100,000 square feet of available space, including a multi-purpose room that can be configured for different size groups, from 50 up to 500, a 300-seat theater-style auditorium, and numerous classrooms. An additional 9,000 square feet of outdoor space is available on Founders Hall Plaza. Arlington County-affiliated non-profit and civic groups can use the space at discounted rates.

Government agencies, businesses, community and non-profit organizations frequently hold events at the Arlington Campus. Mason also hosts numerous events that are free and open to the public including lectures, political debates, films, art exhibits and other community-focused programs.

Metrobus 38B runs from Ballston Metro Station to Farragut Square, and stops on Washington Boulevard at Founders Way, on the northwest corner of campus.

If you’re bicycling to Mason, go to http://www.bikearlington.com ; click on ‘Maps & Rides’ and plan your trip. There are 50 miles of off-street trails that make getting there by bike incredibly easy. The Custis and WO&D trails, part of the Arlington Loop, provide easy access to campus.

A Capital Bikeshare station, bike racks, and a fix-it station are located in front of the entrance to Founders Hall on Fairfax Drive. There is another Capital Bikeshare Station only a block away at Fairfax Drive and Wilson Boulevard.
