Posted: July 9, 2008 at 1:00 am, Last Updated: November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

Returning and incoming new students, as well as other members of the Mason community, are cordially invited to the first Off-Campus Housing Fair on Tuesday, July 15, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Center for the Arts lobby on the Fairfax Campus.

More than 35 property managers located within a 10-mile radius of the campus (many within walking distance) have been invited to promote convenient off-campus housing options. The fair will provide an opportunity to gain valuable information on searching for area housing and is expected to become an annual event.

The fair will take place in conjunction with Mason’s largest Transfer Orientation date.

Although Mason is currently building more residence halls and new facilities will open this fall, demand for on-campus housing exceeds supply.

To register for the Off-Campus Housing Fair, visit the web site.

Those who cannot attend or who would like a head start in searching for off-campus accommodations can visit the off-campus housing web site. By becoming a member, participants can learn about new housing listings and view up-to-the-minute message boards.
