George Mason University will hold classes this fall in Sterling at 21641 Ridgetop Circle. Mason@Loudoun will be home to four classrooms, a computer lab, and four offices. There will also be conference space, a student lounge, and study areas. The site is located off Route 28 and Nokes Boulevard, and is also accessible from Route 7 and Cascades Parkway.

Along with programs currently offered at the Center for Innovative Technology, this site expands George Mason’s presence in Loudoun County and offers additional education opportunities to county residents.

“Mason@Loudoun continues our partnership with business, industry, and governments throughout Northern Virginia. It opens new possibilities for extending ties in research, and for providing programs that match the extraordinary growth and innovative spirit of the region,” says Provost Peter Stearns.

Courses will be offered by the School of Management, the College of Education and Human Development, the College of Nursing and Health Science, the School of Information Technology and Engineering, and the College of Arts and Sciences. Mason@Loudoun will not initially offer complete degree programs but will work in conjunction with existing university programs at the Fairfax and Prince William Campuses.

Classes begin Aug. 29. Additional information is available online at loudoun.gmu.edu, by e-mail at loudoun@gmu.edu or by phone at 703-993-8353.
