Accommodation Options

Interns will be housed in an apartment-style residence hall, which houses 2 or 4 guests per apartment and each will have a single bedroom. Suitemate preferences should be indicated on the intern's application, however we cannot guarantee that preferences will be available.

Please note: all bedrooms are within a shared apartment. All guests in an apartment will share the bathroom facilities, kitchen, and living room spaces.

Available Dates

Housing is available from Sunday, May 22, 2016 until Saturday,  August 6, 2016. All check-ins and check-outs occur on Sundays. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate any early arrivals or late departures.* If your plans require you to check out prior to Sunday, you may do so, but you will not receive a refund of unused nights. A four-week minimum stay is required.

*Current Mason students who are not taking classes this summer but are utilizing Intern housing AND are currently living on campus or scheduled to live on campus for Fall 2016, will be provided the option to apply for Extended Stay/Early Arrival to bridge the gap between spring and summer and summer Intern housing and the opening for fall. This option will only be available to current Mason students scheduled to live on campus for the 2016-2017 academic year (the summer to fall accommodation) or those currently living on campus (spring to summer accommodation).  Please note that any student living in Gap Housing between summer and fall will have to move to Taylor Hall during the Gap housing stay.
