The Corner Pocket enhances student well-being by providing a social hub where students come to relax, study, and engage with peers, faculty, and staff. Corner Pocket engages student organizations and on-and off-campus partners to host various students and staff-related events. The Corner Pocket strives to provide comfortable social spaces, promote high-energy friendly competition, demonstrate superior customer service, and provide creative programs and event support.

Corner Pocket is a place where the Mason community can gather to relax and have fun together. Challenge your roommate to a foosball game, play your favorite video game with your professor, or bring a date to play pool. Corner Pocket has something for everyone.

Your organization can also reserve the Corner Pocket for your next event or gathering!
