George Mason adding housing in P.Wm.

The Prince William campus of George Mason University in Manassas is really not so much a campus as a small office park: three school buildings, a performing arts hall and an aquatic center. But now George Mason, ever expanding as Virginia’s second largest university, is going to add student housing.

According to Inside, a building near the intersection of the Route 234 bypass and University Boulevard would house 140 grad students and faculty and have 25,000 square feet of retail space. The plan is for it to open by July of next year.

Inside Nova’s Kipp Hanley has many more details.

Tom Jackman is a native of Northern Virginia and has been covering the region for The Post since 1998.
