Free student tickets are available to many world-class performances at the Center for the Arts.

There are endless ways to engage with the 鶹Ƶ Nation: Enjoy concerts, comedians, and other special events, catch a film on campus—tickets are free, and so is the popcorn.

Life after you close the books.

Support your fellow students at a dance gala or music performance. Catch a Patriots game at the EagleBank Arena. Have a spontaneous game of Frisbee on the lawn or do the unthinkable—laundry!

Next stop: D.C.

It’s a great place to intern and gain valuable experience and connections outside the classroom—and a great place to explore and hang out on the weekends. Besides the monuments and museums, Washington, D.C. is experiencing a renaissance as the capital of cool. There are lots of new coffee shops, music venues, stores, lounges, galleries and affordable places to grab a bite (soup dumplings anyone?) cropping up every day in neighborhoods all around the city. The people-watching alone is worth the trip!

Getting around.

Hitch a ride on the 鶹Ƶ shuttles. Rides are free with your 鶹Ƶ student ID. Take it to the Metro, Fair Oaks Mall, Fair Lakes Center, Fairfax Corner, University Mall and 鶹Ƶ’s Science and Technology Campus in Prince William County. .

If you drive and need , there are plenty of options, and we wouldn’t want you to get a ticket.
