Events and Gatherings

If you’re planning an event, Mason can provide a venue. There are no limits on the number of participants, but organizations must follow our guidelines.  

If you plan an internal seated event, we’ll set up 10 percent of the space to accommodate physical distancing for unvaccinated individuals.  

If you plan an external event, you can decide if you want to set aside space to accommodate physical distancing. 

All on-campus events must still follow certain requirements:

  1. All events and gatherings managers must request space in compliance with University Policy 1103 (Space Utilization and Scheduling).
  2. Participants must complete Mason COVID Health and receive a “green light” status on the day of the event. Event organizers must perform a spot check of roughly 20 percent of attendees to verify a green status during check-in.
  3. Entrances and exits must be configured to reduce bottlenecks.
  4. Events cannot be open to the general public. RSVPs are required for all events, and organizers should check in the participants and keep records of attendees/no-shows.
  5. If food is being served, you must follow our Dining guidelines.
