The second node in the MIX network is the MIX@Fenwick, a 14,000-square foot student-centered collaboration and maker space that is the center of gravity for entrepreneurship at Mason. Located in the center of the Fairfax Campus, the newly-renovated MIX@Fenwick opened its doors to the Mason community in June 2017.  

Originally built as a library, the building that houses the MIX@Fenwick was ripe for renewal. We have completely rethought the purpose of this building, converting it from a 20th-century knowledge center into a 21st-century collaboration hub. MIX@Fenwick brings together spaces for co-working, collaboration, and experiential learning. It is the place at Mason where multi-disciplinary groups come together to develop ideas, research problems, craft solutions, and start companies.

Directions to the MIX@Fenwick: Please park in the Rappahannock River Parking Deck, in the visitors’ section on the ground floor (navigate to https://goo.gl/maps/SYWECEieaFD2). Pay for parking using the ticket machines, exit the parking deck at the ticket machines, cross the street and continue on the path on the other side. When the path splits (after about 30 meters), go right. After about 30 seconds, you will start to see a red brick building with big white columns: this is the MIX. Wrap around the right side of the MIX building and then enter through the main doors.
