Spring Cleaning

The thermometer may be hovering close to freezing, but George Mason University employees are already thinking about spring. “Spring Cleaning” is underway in many offices, as employees are either preparing to move to new quarters or preparing for the start of the new semester.

George Mason University Records Management, run out of Special Collections & Archives, assists university departments with the retention and disposition of all temporary university records.

We help with spring cleaning efforts by offering an alternative location to store inactive, but still important, university records.  University offices may store inactive paper records at the University Records Center in the Central Receiving Warehouse on the Fairfax campus. Approximately 10,000 cubic feet of inactive university records reside in this secure and efficient space.  The department of origin retains full ownership of all records stored there and can request records returned any time.

We make the process as easy as possible.  Records Management provides boxes, free of charge, for all records stored at the University Records Center.  We also arrange for box transfer with no charge to faculty or staff.
