SUB 1 Closed Friday

Posted: August 21, 2015 at 8:35 am

Dear Patriots,

George Mason University is closing SUB 1 on Friday to investigate nonhazardous but objectionable odors.

Facilities, Environmental Health and Safety, and Student Services have been working together to identify the source of the odor. Further testing is needed and will be conducted on Friday. SUB 1 is expected to reopen Monday.

SUB 1 houses University Life, the Registrar’s Office and additional student services. Student services will continue at the locations listed below on Friday.

  • Registrar’s Office: Innovation Hall, room 222
  • Student accounts and financial aid: Innovation Hall, room 223
  • University Life: Merten Hall, room 1202-1203
  • Enrollment, Academic Advising: Johnson Center, room 245
  • Transfer students: Johnson Center, room 213
  • Military services: Johnson Center, room 213
  • Counseling and Psychological Services: HUB, room 2400 (LEAD office)
  • Office of International Programs and Services: Merten Hall, room 1201
  • Disability services, Thompson Hall, rooms 1017-1018
  • Early Identification Program: Science and Technology Campus, room 217
  • Student Health Services Immunization Office: Mason Global Center Ball Room 1316A
  • Wellness, Alcohol, and Violence, Educational Services: Johnson Center, room 240K, Women and Gender Studies Office
  • Office of Disability Services: Aquia 229

The Student Health Clinic will be closed. Students can call the main line at 703-993-2831 and it will direct them to the Advice Nurse line, available 24/7.

Food services and the cash office are closed in SUB 1. Staff will assist with online student payment processing in Innovation Hall, room 223.

SUB 1 faculty and staff should check with their supervisors for alternative working locations or possible telework.

In those very limited cases where telework or an alternate work location are not possible, both non-exempt and exempt employees should record “university leave” (up to a maximum of eight hours) on their timesheets for that portion of their work day when they could not work. Supervisors will approve university leave during their customary review and approval of timesheets.

Thank you for your patience while we solve this problem.
