More about the INTO Mason Center 

Situated in the Ángel Cabrera Global Center (ACGC), INTO Mason is specially equipped to meet the needs of international students.  

Study and hang out with friends in the lounges between classes or get to know the friendly INTO Mason staff. They can help you with tutoring, academic advice, finding an internship or any other question you may have as a Mason student. 

Living and learning at INTO Mason makes the transition to US university life both easy and exciting. Being part of a multicultural community outside the nation’s capital means that opportunity surrounds you and we give you the support to succeed. 

Washington, DC, offers internships, Optional Practical Training (OPT) and careers in various fields. Plus, the alumni and faculty connections you’ll make will give you a greater edge over other graduates once you start your career.  

The ACGC is the hub of your first-year experience at Mason. Originally designed as a hotel, this building has everything under one roof — including classrooms, an international dining hall, six floors with 135 rooms and plenty of social spaces. Make an appointment to meet with your professor, attend a Tea & Talk cultural event hosted by our Student Experience team or meet your friends for dinner during a theme night at The Globe.   

The Learning Resource Center (LRC) is the place to go when you want one-on-one help with writing, math or other subjects. You'll have access to dedicated tutors who’re highly experienced at assisting English language learners. The LRC also has a computer lab and a quiet study space where you can borrow a laptop and work on group projects.  

You can find a taste of home at The Globe, one of the three on-campus dining halls. The Globe serves an ever-changing menu of international cuisine. It's open every day of the year, and you can always find halal, vegetarian, kosher and gluten-free options.  

In addition, the Southside Dining Hall and Ike's Dining Hall offer eight different dining stations.
