Due to the measures that the University has taken in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Mason Parking Services in Fairfax is moving to close the parking office to walk-in traffic. We’re temporarily switching to an appointment-only system to serve the needs of our customers. Everyone is encouraged to use on-line resources to the extent possible and to make an appointment if a visit to the parking office is necessary by calling 703-993-2710 or emailing [email protected]. See changes for SciTech and Arlington offices on their websites or by emailing [email protected] or [email protected].

Metro Forward

Metro Forward

ICYMI: Starting today, Metro will further reduce rail and bus hours.

Metrorail will close at 9 p.m. every day and Metrobus service will also end earlier, with the last trips departing at or before 11 p.m.

The decision to end service earlier reflects a significant drop-off in ridership since Metro began asking riders to limit use of the system to “essential trips only” to enhance safety for employees and individuals who must travel during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Anyone using Metro should travel only if absolutely necessary for essential purposes as stipulated under stay-at-home Executive Orders in effect throughout the Metro service area. Essential travel includes first responders, hospital staff, critical government employees, grocery and pharmacy workers, and others who must work during the public health emergency. Unless traveling for an essential purpose, you are urged to stay at home.

Payroll Deduction Permit Fees Suspended

Valued Permit Owners:

Due to the measures that the University has taken in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Mason Parking Services is going to suspend all parking payroll deductions effective with the April 16 paycheck, which covers the March 25 to April 9 pay period; there will be no deductions starting with that period.

Deductions also will be suspended through June 16, with the possibility to extend longer. Similarly, we will reinstate payroll deductions should on-campus activities resume prior to those dates.

Employees do not need to return their permits and can continue using them if they have to park on campus.

As you know, our students have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 crisis. In response, as “Patriots Helping Patriots,” we have set up a fund to help those most in need. If you are able, please consider giving a portion of the money you won’t spend on parking towards this cause. You can donate here. Please indicate “University Life Student Emergency Assistance Fund” in the space provided on the form. You can also give at any time through payroll deduction.

For questions, please contact Parking Services at [email protected]

Thank you,

Faculty/Staff Parking Permit Refund for Purchased Parking Permits

Valued Permit Owners,

Due to the measures that the University has taken in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Mason Parking Services is going to issue a partial refund for your faculty/staff annual, 9-month or spring semester parking permit. The refund will cover the weeks of March 16, 2020 through May 22, 2020. We are refunding a pro-rated amount of each parking permit, representing 10 weeks of parking fees for the Spring semester, with an adjustment for necessary fixed costs.

Employee Refund Amount Tables

We are suspending our usual procedure of requiring permits to be returned when requesting refunds. Permits expiring at the end of the spring term will expire on the expected date, while permits that extend to later dates can still be used through their normal expiration dates after campus operations resume.

Refunds will be processed to your credit card if you purchased your parking permit via that method during the past six months. Purchases made by credit card more than six months ago will be refunded within 4 to 6 weeks by check/ACH via Accounts Payable.

As you know, our students have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 crisis. In response, as “Patriots Helping Patriots,” we have set up a fund to help those most in need. If you are able, please consider giving a portion of your refund towards this cause. You can donate here. Please indicate “University Life Student Emergency Assistance Fund” in the space provided on the form. You can also give at any time through payroll deduction.

Summer session permits will be available if and when on-campus activities resume. More information will be forthcoming on this topic as we know more.

Van Metre Hall and Hazel Hall: Power Outage on Friday, March 20

A full power outage at Van Metre and Hazel halls on the Arlington Campus will begin Friday, March 20, at 8 a.m., and continue until Saturday, March 21, at noon. This outage will facilitate the replacement of energy transformers that supply power to the campus. This is a planned power outage and not a result of the University’s ongoing response to COVID-19. Vernon Smith Hall is not impacted by this power outage.

The Kirkwood Street entrance to Founders Way, behind Van Metre Hall, will be closed to traffic. The loading docks will be blocked to accommodate equipment needed for the replacement. Van Metre Garage may be accessed via the Washington Boulevard entrance only.

Emergency generators will power critical building safety operations such as fire alarms, exit and night lights for egress, telephone systems, and other equipment that may be tied to the generator. It is recommended no one be on campus during the outage. Ensure your computer is turned off and perishables are removed from refrigerators.

Those equipped for remote access and telework will be able to access central systems such as email, MESA file storage, and Banner apps during this time.

Took my cleaned up "as-is" bike on a ride on this beautiful day. Thanks GMU parking and transportation for having that sale.
Do food delivery robots have right of way at GMU intersections? They get to an intersection and hesitate, seem not sure which direction to go. Are drivers supposed to wait and let them cross. Robots don't signal which way they're going.
Anyone selling a general or rapp deck parking pass for this semester?
I find your policy regarding handicap parking not only insensitive, but offensive and well as in violation of the intent of the American With Disabilities Act (ACT) to people with handicaps that prevent them from walking far, walking with pain, or even unable to walk. You have not only a lack of handicap spaces, but a lack of handicap spaces where they are. Even with the existing areas, there are always cars parked unattended with no handicap hanger or license plate, and more aggravating, cars parked waiting to pick someone up while taking up a handicap space. Handicap parking is not a social entitlement, it is a necessity recognized by the Federal Government prompting the ADA for those unable to walk or walk with difficulty. That was one of the many intents of the law. For George Mason to try to make a profit off of the hardship of students who are already paying a significant fee for tuition as well as hundreds of dollars every semester for Mandatory Student Fess (https://studentaccounts.gmu.edu/wp-content/uploads/MandatoryStudentFeeFY19.pdf) to support projects such as the arena, athletic, building fees?, and other areas they may not even be able to access because of the lack of and location of handicap parking reinforces the view that university administration is more interested in raising money to keep the $500K+ salaries and building their personal legacies than advocating for students. I encourage Mason Executive Leadership to revisit the handicap parking policies and reconsider those it is intended to serve.
Are the shuttles running on regular service this weekend?
I paid $490 this year for parking. This year there were times I forgot my parking pass in my other car and coughed up an additional $8 for a daily parking pass. I forget to do this once, and you all give me a 25 dollar ticket? How is that fair?
My son parked in the G lot with his permit between 2 cars with a parking block on front of him. Son works on the weekend and parks his car on Sunday and doesn’t return until Friday. He happened to go to his car on Wednesday for an appointment and there was 2 tickets on his car one from the 30th and one from the 31st. $50 each.. and marked as a restricted area? What the heck? $50 a day? For a parking space that was not clearly marked? Question is when do you tow ? How many tickets before that occurs? I’m just glad he had the appt and noticed the 2 tickets before it became $200 on Friday .. very 😠 irritated you should have appropriate marked spaces.. this is pure bs especially after how much we paid for the permit ! Not happy at all..
When are bus tickets for Thanksgiving break for travel to Va Beach going to be posted?
How about forgiving an $85 parking citation for a hardworking MBA student. Was on campus at 7:00 am for a meeting with MBA administration and parked on the wrong floor of the garage - my bad, but an $85 fine from a school I've already paid $25K to for a degree?!?!
