With the forecast for occasional snow, sleet, and rain starting late Saturday night/early Sunday morning into late Monday night/early Tuesday morning it is mandatory that all Resident Students relocate their vehicles from surface parking lots into a parking deck  Any vehicles left in surface lots by noon Sunday are subject to being ticketed and/or towed.  If you are a Resident Student with a valid Mason parking permit, please move your vehicle into either of the following parking decks:

1) Rappahannock Parking Deck – please park in the General permit area (the portion of Level 1 that is not designated for visitors and the non-restricted parking spaces of level 2) as well as in the restricted parking spaces of Level 3 if the General permit area fills.  The normal restriction preventing overnight permit parking will be waived.  Relocation is currently allowed at this time.

2) Shenandoah Parking Deck – Levels 2 through 4.  Relocation will be allowed beginning at 6PM on Saturday, January 30, 2021.

Anyone who parks in the 1st level visitor areas will be required to pay the posted parking fees upon exit.  A valid Mason parking permit will be required to park in permit areas of those two parking decks.  Those without valid Mason parking permits are welcome to use visitor paid parking if wanting to park in the decks.

Again, any vehicles left in surface parking lots are subject to being ticketed and/or towed.

An email will be sent to you once more information is known about Mason’s operating status including when one will need to relocate their vehicles back into their regular parking areas.  We appreciate your compliance with this request as it is in your best interests for safety and to allow the University’s Facilities department to clear surface parking lots.  We apologize for any inconvenience.
