A town of 59,000 residents, Fairfield was recognized as the ninth best place to live in the United States by Money Magazine in 2006.

Fairfield is a coastal town, and includes beaches along the Long Island Sound. Commerce is varied and plentiful. There is always something happening in town!

The town's proximity to New York City makes it possible to go into the city in a casual fashion. It is very easy to hop on the train and enjoy all the city has to offer. Another city, New Haven (home to Yale University), is also within reach from Fairfield University. New Haven houses great restaurants, academic institutions and is a great place to spend an evening. A few hours' drive away is Boston, Mass., New England's largest city. Fairfield's location will help you discover the area like you'd never imagine.
