Large auditorium with a variety of ticket levels. Most areas despite cheaper seats still have reasonable views. Check out seating map and views before purchasing. Popular performances sell out quickly. Large parking lot. Very handicap accessible.

I have attended a couple of high school graduation events at this arena in the georgemason university and have always found easy parking. Getting out soon after an event could be an issue since the nearby roads are not designed for such traffic.

I admit I look for reasons to go to this arena, no matter what name it has in a given year. It's on the George Mason Univ. campus, plenty of parking, and excellent views from all the seats.

Seats on this building are way to incline, on the upper seats from middle to the top, so you have to pay good money to get good seats. The traffic is horrible when you are close to the campus and nobody to control the traffic...More

In the event you sit in the regular arena seating and not on the floor, I'd suggest lower rows (AA, BB, EE, etc.) and aisle seats (1 and 2 or 15 and 16). My seats for basketball games are in Section 117 and have also sat... More
