Summer Scholars Program Residence Life Experience

A college experience is not complete without a residential component.

Throughout the program, students will live in double rooms, share a common bathroom, and have access to lounges on every floor. Resident Assistants will provide educational and social programming to enhance the students' experience outside of the classroom. There is 24-hour support provided by live-in staff, Resident Assistants and Public Safety.

Students can take advantage of the many amenities offered on Fairfield University's beautiful 200-acre campus, which includes the RecPlex (fitness center, indoor pool, saunas, racquetball, and basketball courts) as well as the state-of-the-art library, computer, and science labs. The Dining hall and The Stag Snack Bar in the Campus Center offer a wide variety of menus and offerings.
