Please select the appropriate organization classification below to get started.

8 indoor kiosks located in the atrium(A-H).
1 outdoor table located outside the East Plaza and 1 outdoor table located outside the Wilkins Plaza.
Wilkins Plaza and Southside
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
Canteen Vending Company
FOOD AND BEVERAGE
All food and/or beverages sold or passed out free of charge, must be commercially prepared (no “home-baked” goods) and should be individually sealed/pre-packaged by an Authorized Food Provider (a commercially licensed business).
All food and/or beverages must be provided in their final form from the food provider (raw materials cannot be combined, mixed, cooked, or make a different product for distribution). An example of this would be mixing commercially produced water with lemonade mix into a pitcher then serving in individual servings.
If food is not individually sealed/prepackaged by the Authorized Food Provider, then appropriate food handling standards must be followed. An example would be distributing individual donuts/pizza slices from a commercially packaged box.
An 8.5” x 11” (or larger) sign must be placed on all tables where food and or beverages will be distributed. This sign must be easily read and state “This food is not provided by a George Mason Approved Caterer. Consume at your own risk.”
Beverages provided in bulk serving containers are allowed if they are procured from an Approved Caterer or Authorized Food Provider.
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. Power supply is only available at select indoor kiosk locations. No extension cords may be run across walkways.
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.
