Housing Selection & LLC Applications

The 2019-2020 Housing Selection application will be available at 1 p.m. on January 28, 2019. The necessary links will be active at that time to apply for housing.  

Your student can complete the application using the George Mason Housing Portal. The application must be completed no later than February 4, 2019, at 4 p.m  

Once a housing agreement is signed, your student is locked into the agreement. We advise your student not to sign unless they are serious about living here.  

Make a Plan. After all housing applications are submitted and approved, your student will have the opportunity to identify their group size and members.  

  • Mason encourages students to go into the selection process with one or more buddies. Forming a group improves the likelihood of living with friends or compatible suite mates. 
  • Groups can be composed of two, three, four or six people. Individuals select spaces after groups make selections. 
  • Selection is done by seniority. 
  • Certain types of spaces, such as large apartments and single rooms, are not widely available. Encourage your student to keep their budget in mind, and remember to factor in pricing, location, meal plan requirements, and access to halls over winter break. 

Selecting Their Living Space. Group leaders will choose the space and selection will take place in late February. Please refer to the 2018-2019 Housing Selection Cheat Sheet for an overview of last year’s selection process. The 2019-2020 Housing Selection Cheat Sheet will be posted prior to the application launch date on January 28.

Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are an opportunity for students to live on a floor or in a building with other students who share a common interest or major. The 2019-2020 LLC application opens Tuesday, January 29. 

Why LLCs?  LLCs provide students an opportunity to discover, explore, and apply knowledge through multidisciplinary projects, programs, and coursework in a wide array of different themes. LLC students create connections to their academic work in new and creative ways, receive additional academic and social support, and engage in transformative experiences. 

 LLC applications are due Tuesday, February 5 via the housing application: If you have questions, contact or (703) 993-6674. Visit to learn more about LLCs.
