Parking3  Summer Program Parking Information

Parking on the Mason Fairfax Campus requires a parking pass and is not included in the cost of the program.  Visitors or students parking on campus must pre-purchase a pass online for the general lots for $8/day or $25/week.   Short term parking is available in several visitor parking decks for $3/hour ($15/day max) during the week or $8 flat rate on the weekend.  See directions below for purchasing a weekly pass.

IMPORTANT: If a parent of a summer program participant is doing Drop-off and Pick-up, a parking pass is NOT needed, as there are specific staff-guided procedures to follow.  Parents (or any adults) who wish to stay on campus during program hours,  or any students who will drive themselves, MUST either park in a deck or pre-purchase a general lot pass for Lot A or Lot K.  Passes are purchased directly from George Mason University and should be printed out at home.  Click the Purchase button below.
