Mason Brings Mason Mobile ID to iPhone, Apple Watch and Android Devices

Students, faculty, and staff at Mason can now add their Mason Mobile ID to Apple Wallet and use their iPhone, Apple Watch, or Android device to seamlessly and securely access residence halls, offices, dining locations, and other campus facilities, as well as make contactless purchases on campus.

The move from physical cards to Mason Mobile ID on iPhone, Apple Watch, or Android device allows for transactions that are safe, convenient, and secure, and helps students avoid handing their ID cards to someone else. Mason can also issue school IDs remotely without the need for students to request an Mason Mobile ID in-person, eliminating the need to print and mail physical cards and creating a safer, more cost-effective, and more environmentally friendly process.

Mason Makes History with The Difference Baker:
Unveiling the Nation’s First Certified Allergy-Friendly Retail Location on a College Campus

Mason is thrilled to announce a momentous collaboration with The Difference Baker, marking a historic milestone in campus dining. The Difference Baker will be the first retail location on a college campus in the nation to offer a truly allergy-friendly experience, surpassing all expectations with its unparalleled dedication to allergen inclusivity. This innovative dining concept will be entirely free from seven of the top nine allergens, including fish, shellfish, soy, and sesame, setting a new standard for campus dining and catering to the diverse needs of its student community.

Mason Launches Virtual Parking Permit Program

Parking and Transportation is excited to announce the launch of its new Virtual Parking Permit program. This innovative and sustainable program will revolutionize the way parking permits are issued and utilized on campus, with the goal of streamlining the parking process for students, faculty, staff, and visitors. With Virtual Parking Permits, the permit holder’s license plate will serve as their permit, eliminating the need for physical hang tags. This means that every parking permit holder will be required to update their automobile and license plate information in their parking portal to avoid receiving a ticket.

Auxiliary Services & Operations provides internal funding (up to $10,000) for Mason units to achieve the university’s overall strategic priorities. The funding can be applied to a wide range of activities, such as scholarships, travel expenses, event organization, promotions, and more. The funding requests are on a first-come, first-served basis and are contingent on overall Auxiliary Services & Operations’ revenue.

Please note that the Auxiliary Services & Operations’ ability to honor approved requests is contingent on overall revenue. Multi-year requests will be honored rarely, and receiving funds for the first year of such a request is no guarantee that funds will be available for subsequent years.
