How does it work?
The Mason Student Services Center is located on the first floor of Student Union 1, on the Fairfax campus. Upon arrival, students should first proceed to an available kiosk station and check-in online. The online check-in process allows students to self-identify the area they need assistance with, which allows for streamlined service. After check-in, students will be greeted by a Mason Student Services Center Representative who can answer both general and complex questions, provide assistance with navigating university resources and provide referrals to specialists when necessary.

The Mason Student Services Center will launch in the beginning of the fall semester to better serve Mason students.
