Mason Game & Technology Academy
Summer Parking Information

Parking on the Mason Fairfax Campus requires a parking pass and is not included in the cost of the program.  Visitors or students parking on campus must pre-purchase a pass online for the general lots for $8/day or $25/week. Short term parking is available in several visitor parking decks for $3/hour during the week or $8 flat rate on the weekend.

IMPORTANT: If a parent of a summer program participant is doing Drop-off and Pick-up, a parking pass is NOT needed, as there are specific staff-guided procedures to follow.  Parents (or any adults) who wish to stay on campus during program hours,  or any students who will drive themselves, MUST either park in a deck or pre-purchase a general lot pass for Lot A or Lot K.  Passes are purchased directly from George Mason University and should be printed out at home.  Download a campus map here for locations of general lots and parking deck options.


Note:  You do NOT need a pass for Saturday/Sunday parking in the General Lots A or K.

  • Click on the purchase link above and create an account (this is different than your MGTA/Registration account, but you can use the same information if you wish). You will be asked for some vehicle information.
  • Select the permit you need to purchase, and carefully select the dates you require. (Please note that you do NOT need a pass for Saturday/Sunday parking in the General Lots)  PERMITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
  • When you reach the Receipt page, make sure to hit the PRINT PERMIT link just below the permit description.
  • Be sure to display your Parking Pass on your vehicle dashboard at all times when you are parking in the General Parking Lots on campus.
