Campus Neighborhoods

A Beautiful Day in Your Neighborhood

Mason's 40-plus residence halls are arranged into three residential communities, known as neighborhoods. Each neighborhood has a 24-hour services desk, and staff with responsibilities ranging from residence life, to housing assignments, to facilities.

If you have a problem, issue or suggestion, we want to hear it. Find the person best able to answer your question or lend a hand in the staff listings accompanying each neighborhood description.
