Parking and Transportation

the Arlington campus. The campus is very close to the Virginia
Square Metro station, and (if a participant is not staying within

George Mason University Arlington Campus is right next to the
Virginia Square Metro station. The hotels near Ballston are about a
15 minute walk from the Arlington campus. Alternatively, you can
take Metro (the Virginia Square Metro station is only one stop away
from Ballston). The hotels near Rosslyn are too far away to walk,
but the Rosslyn station has both the Orange line (direct ride to the
workshop) and the Blue line (direct ride to National Airport).
Courthouse is closer to the workshop than Rosslyn, but still too far
Below are three hotels close to the
Ballston Metro stop. The Hilton in Arlington will be the most
convenient. We encourage the participants to
try there first.
