Mason Libraries Finals Hours for all locations. Note that Fenwick Library is open 24 hours on selected dates; Mason ID required to enter Fenwick after midnight on those dates.
Mason PhD students needing dedicated space for dissertation work on the Fairfax or Arlington campuses may apply to use space in a Dissertation Writers Room (DWR) in either Fenwick or Arlington Campus Libraries. Mason doctoral students, who’ve passed their comprehensive exams and are in good standing with the University and the University Libraries, are eligible to request a space to use and store research materials in an assigned DWR space for one term. Spaces in each of the DWRs are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis (based on date/time submitted) until room capacity is filled.
Mason Libraries’ Recommended Reads collection consists of approximately 700 recent fiction and non-fiction books. Housed in Gateway Library (located in the Johnson Center), these titles are favorably reviewed by National Public Radio, The New York Times, and other reputable sources. Recommended Reads have a three week borrowing period; books may be renewed once. Browse the collection, check a few out – and relax between some covers!
