If you ever find yourself unable to walk to class or get to classes due to an injury or disability, be sure to check out Patriot Lift!

The Patriot Lift Program provides limited transportation service to those students, faculty, and staff requiring long- or short-term assistance moving around within the parameter of the Fairfax Campus on a one-time or recurring basis. All applicants must receive prior approval from relevant offices on campus. See below for the new applicant registration process.

Note: There is no pick-up at the Field House, West Campus, or Masonvale. The Parking and Transportation Department will house and operate the program.
