General Parking and Winter Break Parking

Valued Permit Owner,

Beginning at 5:00pm on Thursday, December 2, 2021, Student General permit parking areas will be available to any valid Mason Parking permit until 11:00pm on Sunday, January 23, 2022.  During this time you may park in the Student General permit parking areas at all times while displaying a valid Mason parking permit.  This includes the non-restricted parking spaces in Lots A, C, K, L, M, O, P, PV and the General permit area of the Rappahannock Parking Deck (Levels 2 & 2 with the exception of the segregated visitor area).  All faculty/staff and other parking areas designated by signage will still be enforced.

If you are planning on leaving your vehicle on campus during winter break, please park it in the General permit areas of the Rappahannock Parking deck and not on a surface lot in case of inclement weather.

A valid Mason parking permit is still required to park on campus or you may pay for parking in the visitor parking areas.  The expiration date for fall semester permits has been extended through January 23, 2022.

For questions, please contact Parking Services at (703) 993-2710, (703) 993-2828 or email us at

Thank you,

Mason Parking Services
