Programs on George Mason University’s Campus

Parking on the George 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. Parents dropping off students in the morning or picking up in the afternoon will receive instructions on where to park for free for drop off and pick up times only.

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’s Parking Services. Click the Purchase Parking button below.
