Many graduate students also rent apartments in Masonvale.  Although it is located on the Fairfax campus, it is considered as "Off-campus Housing".  Click here to learn more.

What makes Masonvale different from other housing options?

  • To be eligible to live at Masonvale’s GMU Staff Housing Apartments, residents must have a relationship with George Mason University or affiliates.
  • Masonvale is transitional housing and offers a variety of lease terms. The maximum residency term at Masonvale is three (3) to six (6) years depending on Priority status. This affords ongoing housing availability for new members of the George Mason University community.
  • Residents of Masonvale have a common interest through their affiliation and relationship with George Mason University.

  • Start your housing search as soon as possible. Do not wait until you arrive in the US. There is a lot of demand for housing in the Washington DC area. Start your search by talking to friends or current students and by reviewing the website http://och.gmu.edu.
  • When you have identified one or more suitable properities, research public transportation.  Is there a bus or metro stop closeby? How will I travel to campus?
  • Also make sure it fits with your class schedule. Some classes run as late as 10:10 pm. Is there still a bus or metro around 10:30 pm?
  • Be prepared to pay the first month’s rent and security deposit (equal to one month’s rent or two months' rent) upon signing the lease.
  • Does the lease include utilities and/or furniture?
  • To save money, consider renting a room in a house. To find it on http://och.gmu.edu, click on "advanced search" and look for a sublet or sublease.
