Parents & Families of Current Students

Dear Parents & Families,

hp_ad3_parent_220x150As the parent or family of a Fairfield University student, you may have many questions concerning the experience he or she is having here at Fairfield University. You may also have questions about Fairfield University itself! We recognize the important role that parents and families play in supporting students in these critical transitional years. In addition to being personally accessible, all of us here at Fairfield want to provide parents and families with ready access to information that will be informative and helpful. For that reason, the Parents and Families webpage was specifically designed to link parents and families to some of the most commonly requested information and facts about Fairfield University.

Being a college student in today's age is a transitional experience not only for students, but for their families as well. The Fairfield University experience is one grounded in the Jesuit idea of supporting one another, and developing a community of scholars who are well-prepared to engage the world in meaningful and beneficial ways. We are proud and appreciative of our students' decision to attend Fairfield, and want to do everything we can to make their experience - and yours - a positive one. That begins with clear, open and routine communications in the areas that are most relevant to you. We hope this webpage will assist us in meeting that important goal.

As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact my office at (203) 254-4000, ext. 2244, or any other office for further assistance.
