Distributed Campuses

George Mason University employs a distributed campus structure, meaning that instead of having a main campus and branch campuses focused on duplicating academic offerings, the physical home for a given academic program may be on any one of the three campuses.   Although there is some duplication for convenience, each campus has some distinctive academic programs not replicated elsewhere.  There is a single academic administration for the entire university, rather than separate campus leaders.

  • The Arlington Campus houses the School of Law, the School of Conflict Analysis and Resolution, and the School of Public Policy, as well as other programs.
  • The Fairfax Campus is the largest of the campuses, and is the central home to most of the university’s programs not otherwise specifically named.
  • The Prince William Campus houses major research facilities in the life sciences, the university’s joint certificate and master’s medical education programs with Georgetown University, and also hosts strong undergraduate offerings.

The Office of Regional Campuses provides administrative coordination and oversight across the university’s campuses and other instructional sites.
