About

Mission

Housing and Residence Life at GMU provides a safe inclusive community-oriented environment that supports academic excellence, fosters personal growth and champions the well-being of residents, through collaboration and intentional programming, to ensure their success at Mason and beyond. 

About Us

Housing and Residence Life is dedicated to providing our students with a safe inclusive community-oriented environment that will give them the tools and support needed to thrive at Mason. Living on campus makes it easier for students to connect with their peers and access campus resources that support academic excellence. 

Our professional staff has transformed the student experience to reflect that our residents don’t just live here, they belong here. By partnering with Academic Units and University Life Offices, we have been able to create 36 Learning Communities, and develop a residential curriculum, that provides a supportive, educational, and exciting living experience for students. 

In addition to live on professional and student staff in each residence hall, housing is comprised of several units—Facilities and Operations, Residential Student Engagement and Education, Residential Student Success and Divisional Shared Services—all of which play a vital role in supporting students health, safety and well-being. 

Our Leadership Team is located in Piedmont and they are available during standard university hours (9AM-5PM). If you have any questions about our website or if we can provide any assistance, please do not hesitate in contacting us at housing@gmu.edu
