Resident Student Association Organization COVID-19 Update


Dear Patriot,

As you are probably already aware, the University has extended spring break and will be moving most classes online. The Resident Student Association is still committed to ensuring that your on-campus residential needs are being met during this interruption.


All Resident Student Association meetings and events are canceled through Friday, April 3.

The Executive Board of RSA will remain accessible during this period to assist students with addressing concerns related to the residential student experience. You can email them at any point at Please note that responses may be delayed during this time. An update will be provided at a later date should things continue to evolve or change with the University's operating schedule after Friday, April 3. 

As you know, the COVID-19 situation is changing rapidly and the University as well as various departments will continue to send information often. Below you will find the most recent updates regarding residential services. If you have specific questions other than for the departments listed, the University Switchboard can assist in directing calls about Mason’s response to the coronavirus. The number is 703-993-1000.

Yours in Patriot Pride,

Clinton W. Carlson, Jr.
