The community of Fairfield University extends well beyond the campus. Perched on a hill overlooking Long Island Sound, in the center of Fairfield, CT, the University is very much a part of the local community. Surrounded by lakes, beaches, hills, and a vibrant New England downtown, Fairfield University gives students the chance to take advantage of all the area offers. In addition, local residents also benefit from all the University has to offer them. Fairfield University engages the local community with a wide range of artistic and thought provoking exhibits and performances. At Fairfield University, our community includes you.
