Fairfield University

The moment you arrive at Fairfield University everything feels different. Our 200-acre idyllic campus is situated on Connecticut's coastline, providing for beautiful, unforgettable surroundings. But it's more than that - it's our dedication to each and every student's personal growth that makes our environment so unique.

History

Founded in 1942 after the purchase of the adjoining estates of Jennings and Lashar off North Benson Road in Fairfield, the University has grown from an initial class of 303 undergraduate male students admitted to the College of Arts and Sciences in 1947 into a coeducational university of more than 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students. 

Education

Fairfield University's strategic vision stresses the importance of "integration" as a way of approaching education. Collaboratively, the University's focus is on producing graduates whose lives reflect personal integration, competence in multicultural understanding, and a commitment to professional responsibility.

To aid this vision, Fairfield's interdisciplinary area of focus is designed to tap into our faculty's collective knowledge base, our arts and minds programming, and the curiosities of both our undergraduate and graduate students to explore a particular theme or idea.

Research

The research conducted within the College of Arts and Sciences provides undergraduate students the opportunity for faculty mentorship, active learning, and the ability to discover new knowledge while being challenged in new ways. With research being conducted across multiple disciplines, students have the ability to engage in or develop original research projects that allow them to explore their passions while developing important industry connections and making invaluable contributions to their field of study.

Career

The Career Center serves Fairfield University students seeking academic and vocational support services through comprehensive support services, programming and resources. This integrated approach addresses the diverse developmental stages of a student’s academic career and positions Fairfield University as a leader in providing tailored services supporting personal development, academic excellence, and career readiness for a rapidly changing and evolving student body. The distinctiveness of this holistic approach is grounded in our Catholic, Jesuit mission and supports a transformative learning experience.
