You’ve seen the construction fences around George Mason University’s Fairfax Campus, now check out the Core Campus Project website.

At, you can learn the basics and specifics of the project that during the next four years will transform the center of campus into a vibrant, globally connected hub for intellectual exploration.

“It gives an interesting look at what the future is going to look like,” said Cathy Pinskey, program director in Mason’s Facilities department.

Central to the website is an overall project view that includes video representations and explainers of the mostly state-funded $170 million project, the centerpiece of which is the replacement of Robinson Hall with a state-of-the-art, 218,000-square-foot building that will be the defining center of academic life on campus.

There also will be added green space, an outside amphitheater, a larger and redesigned Wilkins Plaza and necessary upgrades to the university’s infrastructure.

The website has project timelines, an overall project map, frequently asked questions and a planner that explains what is coming in the project’s next two weeks.

“It’s a good place to get information about what is happening,” Pinskey said. “I see a lot of people looking at the signs and the banners around campus. So I would say visit the website regularly because it will be updated on a real-time basis throughout the duration of the project.”
