The approximately three mile Fun Run around campus has become a Reunion tradition! Children are welcome to participate if accompanied by an adult. Please note our Fun Run does take place rain or shine. 

Will the RecPlex be open for use during the weekend? 

Summer RecPlex hours have not been determined, but generally Reunion guests are allowed to use the facility during business hours. Please note, all guests must check in at the front desk and sign a waiver in order to use the facility. 

I wish to attend Mass at Egan Chapel of St. Ignatius Loyola at Reunion - what are the times?

There is no assigned or reserved seating for these events. Tables in the Tent on Bellarmine Lawn are in class sections and consist of 10 seats per table. The Dolan School of Business tables are by class year and consist of 8-10 seats per table.

What is the Reunion Weekend Dress Code?

Saturday Daytime Activities: Casual weather-appropriate attire (please note, much of Saturday programming is held outside rain or shine). Families with children welcome.

Evening Dinner Dances: Springtime evening cocktail/"summer wedding" attire is recommended. For the ladies celebrating on Bellarmine Lawn, we also recommend a sweater or wrap and moderate heels or flats. These are adults-only events.

Can my roommate pick up my registration materials if arriving on campus before me?

For security purposes, and to ensure that you receive all of your materials, we require each alumnus to pick up their own registration packet and room keys upon arrival. If extenuating circumstances arise, you may call the Office of Alumni Relations at (203) 254-4280 prior to your arrival to arrange a special pick-up. 

Can I request a special meal at dinner (i.e, gluten-free, vegetarian, etc.)?

The dinner on Bellarmine Lawn is served buffet-style and menus indicate items that are vegetarian, gluten-free, etc. The Golden Stags dinner is plated, but special accommodations can be made for dietary requirements, allergies, etc. Please call the Office of Alumni Relations at (203) 254-4280 and/or indicate your needs on your registration form. At the Taste of Fairfield, we recommend that you speak with the vendors directly for information regarding their offerings.

Housing Questions:

How is campus housing assigned? 

On-campus housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited by building by class. Due to ongoing housing renovations and campus construction housing is subject to change at any time. We will notify you if any changes do occur to housing after registration. Our anticipated housing is as follows:

Golden Stags and Class of 1973
Double Occupancy Rooms with Private Bathroom (Faber Hall)

Classes of 1978-2003
Suite Style Residence Halls (Kostka Hall, Claver Hall)

Class of 2013 & 2008
Traditional Residence Halls (Campion Hall, Jogues Hall)

If I'm not planning on attending the evening activities on campus, can I still stay overnight?

Housing is extremely limited and is only available for alumni and guests attending/pre-registered for the events on Friday and Saturday evening. Room-only reservations will NOT be accepted.

Where can I get my keys?:

Friday housing key pick-up will be near the Barone Campus Center Info Desk from 4 - 10 p.m. Saturday housing key pick-up will be in the Barone Campus Center from 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. and in Bellarmine Hall from 6 - 9 p.m.

Can I pick my roommate(s)?

Yes. You may indicate your roommate request(s) on your registration form. Each roommate must request the other to be placed together. For parties whose roommate requests exceed the accommodations of their rooms (i.e., 3 requests for 2-bed room), we will do our best to house you near each other but this is not a guarantee. Many alumni attend reunion without a spouse or a guest. Please plan ahead to find a roommate or if necessary, one will be assigned to you. Spots in rooms cannot be held for roommates who have not yet registered. 

What should I bring with me to stay on campus?

When packing to stay on campus, please remember that campus housing contains only the basics. Linens, towels, blankets, and pillows will be provided. You may want to bring along an alarm clock, hangers, extra blankets, and extra towels. 

What type of housing is there? Are there private rooms, joint bathrooms, etc.?

Housing accommodations vary depending on the building. Faber Hall houses 2 roommates per room with a private bathroom. Kostka and Claver Halls are suite-style living with two, 2-person rooms joined by a semi-private bathroom. Campion and Jogues Halls accommodate 2 roommates per room with a shared bathroom on each floor for men and women. For detailed information on Reunion Residence Halls click here and select the appropriate residence hall name. 

Are there blocks of rooms reserved if I wish to stay at a local hotel?

Room blocks have been secured at The Circle Hotel and Hotel Hi-Ho in Fairfield (both recently renovated) for Friday, June 8 and Saturday, June 9 at the special rate of $149 per night. Reservations can be made by calling each hotel directly (The Circle at 203-255-0491 and Hotel Hi-Ho at 203-259-5264) and mentioning 'Fairfield University Reunion Weekend' to receive the discount. Reservations will be accepted at this rate until April 9, 2018, or when the blocks fill up, whichever comes first.
