Banners are a great way for Mason Departments and Registered Student Organizations to promote themselves to the Mason Community. Banners hang in the Student Centers buildings (Johnson Center, Student Union Building I, and The Hub) and allow students and other visitors in the buildings to learn about these organizations and services at a glance.

Due to the extremely limited number of spaces, External Organizations and individuals are not able to reserve banner spaces. To coordinate banners to be posted on the Johnson Center Plazas, contact Facilities Management Customer Service at (703) 993-2525. To coordinate decorating the George Mason Statue please fill out the form on the University Life website or contact University Life Central at (703) 993-2884
