Paying to Reserve Your Space
The housing deposit/fee is non-refundable. Deposit/fee requirements and instructions vary across different housing application processes, so check a specific housing application for specific instructions. Don't submit a deposit unless you are instructed to do so.
Deposits can only be made by credit/debit card. Current Mason students and new transfer students will submit their housing deposit through their Mason Housing Portal. Incoming freshman students will submit their enrollment deposit and housing deposit/fee to Admissions.
During Housing Application, students may seek a deposit/fee waiver must do the following:
- Submit the online request
- Be required to submit paper documentation if applicable
No extensions will be offered. Students will be approved for a waiver or required to pay the deposit/fee.
If a housing deposit/fee is not submitted nor an approved waiver, a students application is not complete and if a students application is not complete a student will not receive housing.
