Welcome

The George Mason University Office of the Ombudsman acts as a unique resource for students to discuss concerns and complaints, and serves as a safe space to facilitate the resolution of conflicts. Whether you are unsure of how to resolve your problem, or feel that you have exhausted all your options, we are here for you.

As an impartial party, the office doesn't take sides in any conflict and operates independently of any formal channels at the university. The Ombudsman can assist you in making informed, empowered, and educated decisions to address your situation, no matter what you choose. As we realize that challenges may arise during your time here, the Office of the Ombudsman is dedicated to the campus community and to making your experience at Mason the best possible one.
