With the sun and sand of the beach just down the road, and the hustle and bustle of New York City just a short train ride away, our ideal location on the coast of Connecticut truly offers the best of all worlds.
Rooted in Jesuit values, we push students to examine not just the world, but themselves. Through reflection and self-examination, we challenge each other to live more considered lives. Because an education is more than just the knowledge stored in your head, it’s also the standards you hold in your heart.
As a Fairfield Stag, you’re part of a 3,300-member herd on campus, and a 42,000-strong alumni network in the world. We help each other through it all, from your first week as a freshman, to your very last week of finals. It’s these relationships you build and cultivate that last throughout your life.
