Residential life at Fairfield University consists of a variety of housing options on campus, and housing is guaranteed for four years to all full-time, matriculated undergraduate students. In addition, students are required to remain resident students for four years unless they are able to commute from home or are otherwise released from this obligation by the Office of Residence Life.
All freshmen live together in traditional-style halls, and sophomores live mostly in traditional-style halls with some living in suite-style halls depending upon availability. Approximately one-third of the junior class lives in suite-style halls. Seniors live in townhouses, apartments, or off campus (on a limited basis).
Fairfield's housing options consist of six traditional-style residence halls (mostly double rooms, with a common bathroom for the floor), two suite-style halls (two double rooms sharing one bathroom connecting the two rooms), over 100 two-bedroom and three-bedroom townhouses, and an apartment complex. All student residences allow each student to connect his or her computer to the campus network.
