Kiosk Policies and Guidelines


A standard kiosk includes a 3′ x 6′ table, 2 chairs, 3′ x 3′ additional space for a standup banner or other item.

The Kiosk is in a public space. As a member of the Mason Community, any representatives at the kiosk or table will treat fellow students, staff, faculty, and visitors with respect.

All activity must be conducted within your reserved space allotment.

A representative of the scheduled organization must be present at all times.


Products and Services may not conflict or compete with the University’s exclusive contracts, which include:

Barnes and Noble

Sodexo Food Services

Coke Vending Company

Creda Vending Company

Wells Fargo


Only commercially produced, pre-packaged food and/or drinks may be sold or distributed at kiosks and tables. No home baked goods or drinks are allowed.

If you are selling individual serving sizes of commercially produced or store-bought food, you MUST have a sign at your kiosk stating “This food is not provided by a George Mason University approved caterer. Consume at your own risk.” Those who do not have the appropriate signage posted will not be allowed to sell or distribute individual serving sizes.

Beverages provided in bulk serving containers are allowed if they are procured from Sodexo or an approved caterer. 

External organizations, student groups and Mason departments may give away free of charge food at a kiosk by following the University potluck policy and providing visible signage that states “This food is not provided by a George Mason University approved caterer. Consume at your own risk.” Those who do not have the appropriate signage posted will not be allowed to sell or distribute food and/or drinks.

Only Approved Caterers are allowed to give away food at a kiosk with NO signage as long as the business is giving away the food, not another individual or non-approved catering provider.


One item, such as a stand-up banner, is allowed adjacent to one side of the kiosk, but not both. The item must fit within a 3′ by 3′ square area for the standard kiosk reservations. Under no circumstance can any item block the means of egress.

Tents are only allowed for Kiosk XL external organization reservations.

Nothing can be posted on walls or columns. For standard kiosks, no extra tables or objects may be set up next to or moved by the kiosk. Only outlets directly adjacent to a kiosk may be used. No extension cords may be run across walkways. Power supply is only available at select indoor kiosk locations. Sound may be be played through electronic device (cell phone, computer, etc.) but not played through any type of amplified device (speakers). Student Centers staff has the right to tell you to turn the sound down or off completely if deemed disruptive. (See Policy 1129 for more information)

Due to fire regulations, helium balloons are prohibited in the Johnson Center.


If you arrive for your kiosk reservation and find that another organization, department, or individual is set up at your assigned kiosk, kindly call Student Centers at (703) 993-2921 or visit us in the Johnson Center room 324 to resolve the issue.
Please do not set up at a different kiosk without speaking with us.
