Arlington Parking Permits on Sale Beginning July 6th


Arlington parking permits will be on sale beginning Monday, July 6, 2009. Permits for the Arlington campus will only be sold in person at the Parking Services office located on the first floor of the Original Building. The office is open 9am-5pm M-F.

Faculty/Staff permits are $125 for the fall semester or $225 annually. If you currently have a non-expiring payroll deduction permit(the one with the George Mason statue on it), your permit will be automatically renewed when Parking Services mails out the new payroll deduction permits in July.

Permits will be mailed to the permanent address on file in Patriot Web. If you are eligible for payroll deduction and would like to sign up for a payroll deduction permit if you have previously just bought a semester or annual permit, come to the Parking Services office. Most full-time University employees are eligible for payroll deduction, but the Parking Services office can check to see if you are eligible if you are unsure.

Student permits are only sold by the semester and are $125/semester. Students must bring a copy of their class schedule to provide verification that they are enrolled in at least one class at the Arlington campus in order to be eligible for an Arlington permit.

All Arlington permit holders should have or be issued an access card to park in the GMU Foundation garage located off Washington Blvd. If you currently have an access card, keep it and continue using it when you obtain your new permit. If you have a permit now but don't have an access card, you can get one at the Parking Services office.

As a reminder, Arlington permits are valid at the Fairfax and Prince William campuses. However, Fairfax/Prince William permits are not valid at the Arlington Campus. As well, one should only park at the Arlington Campus when conducting official business (i..e working, taking class)-the permit is not be used as a commuter lot for those who may work or travel into DC or other areas off campus when not on official University business.

If you have any questions, either call the office at 3-8146 or
