The George Mason University Fairfax Campus is located between Braddock Road, Chain Bridge Road, and Roberts Road in Fairfax Virginia, and caters to over 32,500 undergraduate and graduate students, making it one of the largest universities by head count in Virginia. Having gone there myself, I can tell you that it is also one of the nicest campuses, having recently undergone, and continuing to undergo, extensive renovation and expansion.

The newer buildings, like the recently renovated Thompson Hall, Science and Technology II, or the Recreation and Athletic Complex (RAC); a fitness center with three gymnasiums, racquetball courts, classrooms, and a two story fitness area; are state of the art, and provide new and improved areas for learning, studying, and general overall improvement. The Patriot Center and Sports Complexes also provide access to numerous sporting events, shows, and events, like the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

Twenty miles outside of Washington D.C., the area surrounding George Mason University is a good mixture of city and suburb. Downtown Fairfax City is just minutes from campus, providing access to shops, parks, and historical sites, as well as bars and restaurants, and the surrounding areas of Burke, Clifton, and Chantilly offer numerous attractions, like Burke Lake Park, Historic Clifton, and Fair Lakes Shopping Center. The neighborhoods around George Mason University are also diverse, and offer a lot of potential investment opportunities.

The Fairfax Courthouse Townhomes, just a few blocks away from the George Mason campus, consist of 1,428 square feet townhomes with an average of 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Each home has a fenced in backyard, a basement, and reserved parking in front of the home. These homes face University Drive and Armstrong Street, and are right across from the Courthouse, meaning convenient access to holiday festivities such as Fourth of July parade, the Fall Festival, and more.

Fairfax Towne Estates, the neighborhood between Fairfax Courthouse Townhomes and George Mason University, contains single family homes ranging from 1,700 square feet to 3,500 square feet. Most homes have 3 to 4 bedrooms and 2 to 3 bathrooms, although a few have as many as 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Several of these homes are purchased with the intention of being rented out to college students, making them a great investment.

Several other neighborhoods, like the Lyndhurst Condominiums, 680 to 1000 square feet, and the Assembly Townhomes, 1,400 to 2,500 square feet, are only a few minutes drive from George Mason University, offering a wide range of housing options for students, and investment options for anyone looking to rent or sell in an area that will always be in high demand.
