Enter campus by continuing straight on University Drive.
University Drive becomes George Mason Blvd.
Turn right onto Patriot Circle.
Follow Patriot Circle around the pond and turn left onto Mason Pond Drive.
The Concert Hall is the large white building on your right.
2. Where do I park?
Free parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis in Lot K (located directly across the pond from the Center for the Arts/Concert Hall).
Parking is also available in the Mason Pond Parking Deck, located on Mason Pond Drive just past the Center for the Arts/Concert Hall for $8/day.
Parking for vehicles displaying a disabled-parking placard or license plate tag is available on a first-come, first-served basis in front of the Center for the Arts.
3. How do I register for the conference?
Online registration is open and will remain open until May 1, 2014, or when capacity is reached.
4. What time should I arrive the day of the conference?

5. Where should I eat lunch the day of the conference?
It is highly recommended that you purchase a boxed lunch ticket with your registration. Each boxed lunch includes sandwich (your choice of ham, turkey, roast beef, or vegetarian pita), chips, fruit, cookie, and beverage. You will receive a lunch ticket when you check in the morning of the conference, and will redeem it for your selection during the lunch break.
If you did not purchase a lunch ticket when you registered for the conference, on-campus dining options include the Johnson Center Food Court.
6. I plan on arriving early and staying later – what else can I do in the Northern Virginia area? Where should I stay?
George Mason University’s Center for the Arts is located in the city of Fairfax, near Washington, DC. From the perfectly preserved historic building (including the site of the first fatality of the Civil War) to Civil War graffiti on the site of the Blenheim Estate, to a chance to learn the lore of spies and secrets at The Fairfax Museum and Visitors Center, you’ll find plenty of ways to appreciate the historical heritage of Fairfax.
