Family Weekend is an opportunity to attend events designed to allow families to meet one another, become familiar with university staff and administrators, and spend time with their students.

The schedule of events for Family Weekend includes student performances, beer and wine tasting, athletic events, bus tours of the surrounding area, Mason Madness, a 5K run/walk, theatre performances, and so much more! By purchasing a $5 Family Weekend Access Pass, you can enjoy the fun that is Family Weekend and gain entry to more than 30 events that do not require special event tickets.

If you need hotel accommodations during Family Weekend you can book now at one of our four partner hotels that are offering discounts for Mason families. Rooms do fill up quickly, so we encourage you to book early if you know you are attending Family Weekend!

We will continue to add events to the Family Weekend schedule throughout the summer so stay up-to-date on our latest additions by liking the George Mason Family Association on Facebook. To see our current schedule of events, pricing, and frequently asked questions, please visit our website at
