Get Ready for Moving Day

When you're here, you're home.

That's more than just our slogan; it's our attitude.

Living at Mason makes you one of us; you'll have an instant community and easy access to all you need for a successful and fun college career.

Incoming freshman are required to live on campus (hey, that's a good thing), and if you live here from the start, you're guaranteed two consecutive years of on-campus housing.

Upper-classmen are also welcome to apply to bunk within the boundaries of Mason Nation, and part-time students are eligible for one semester of on-campus housing.

  • We'll guide you through the application and selection process, and help you find the bed that 's just right, whether you're a solitary soul who wants a single room, or whether you're the more gregarious type who wants to be surrounded by friends.
  • We'll work with you find a compatible roommate or group to live with, whether you land in a double, triple, quad, or a suite.
Block Party

Neighborhoods on Mason hold block parties for the students who live in the community residence halls.

  • We'll help you figure out your finances, and how to best allocate that college budget.
  • We'll direct you to the best living arrangement as a freshman, upper-classman, or graduate student.

Pack up, Patriot! We're ready to welcome you home.
