Campus Administration

Mason Square is George Mason University's campus in Arlington, VA

Attendees in business attire attend the Movers and Shakers event on the plaza.

Right now Mason Square is in the middle of a $250 million transformation that will serve as a critical catalyst in the further activation of the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor, a dynamic and growing innovation district with a thriving high-tech ecosystem. This will not only support the university’s tech-based research and related educational programs but will provide collaboration and convening spaces to support public programming for the Arlington community.

Campus Management Team

A group of key representatives from academic units and university departments meets monthly to share information and updates for Mason Square. Guest speakers are periodically invited to discuss a topic relevant to the university and the campus. Meeting minutes are distributed to the campus deans and directors. For more information, contact
