Road Closures related to construction of Academic VII Building:
Construction has impacted the access to Patriot Circle. This link will connect you to an explanation of the project that includes a link to a map showing the road closures.

Access to campus from Braddock Road via the recently open Campus Drive Entrance
At performance times, we encourage the use of the new Campus Drive entrance to both enter and exit campus. This entrance brings drivers to Patriot Circle, where they can turn right to get to the round about that provides access to the Mason Pond Parking Deck, or continue on Patriot Circle to Lot K for free event parking.

When exiting from the 1st level of the parking deck, drivers may turn right at the roundabout at the top of the hill, and then turn left onto campus drive, to continue off campus to Braddock Road.

Bus stop locations Take Metro to the Center for the Arts!

Now you can take metro to the Center for the Arts seven days a week. Shuttles to the Fairfax campus leave the North side of the Vienna Metro station on the hour and half-hour. Shuttles from campus to the Vienna Metro station leave Mason Inn on the hour and half-hour and then stop on Patriot Circle near Mason Hall immediately after.

Mason Shuttle:

With convenient and frequent Mason Shuttle and CUE Bus services, getting to and from campus from the Vienna Metro station has never been easier. However, as with most schedules, the Holiday and Summer seasons can often mean limited schedules or service, or no service at all. Please allow enough travel time to ensure a timely arrival to campus. Visit for more details about Mason’s shuttle service.

CUE Bus:
The CUE Bus (fare-based) pick-up and drop-off location is on the north end of campus, just west of the Rappahannock River Parking Deck. The walk from this location to the Center for the Arts Concert Hall is approximately 7-10 minutes at a leisurely pace (and a great way to see more of the ever-growing Mason campus). The Mason Shuttle (free) offers stops next to the Rappahannock River Parking Deck, the Sandy Creek Parking Deck directly east of the Concert Hall (5 minute walk), and at the Recreation and Athletic Complex (RAC) just west of the Concert Hall (2 minute walk). Visit the Cue Bus website for more details about the CUe Bus schedule & service.
