Anyone found in violation of this policy will be dealt with appropriately by the Department of Public Safety and the Fairfield Police Department.

What is the Reunion Weekend Dress Code?

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

Evening Dinner Dance: 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.

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/na 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 pickup. 

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

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

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. Our anticipated housing is as follows:

Classes of 1974 and 1979
Suite-style housing in Langguth Hall, the brand new residence hall in the Quad. Suites consist of two bedrooms with two twin beds per room, and a shared bathroom in the suite. This residence hall is air conditioned. 

Classes of 1984, 1989 and 1994
Suite-style housing in Kostka Hall or Claver Hall. Suites consist of two bedrooms with two twin beds per room, and a shared bathroom in between the two bedrooms. These residence halls are air conditioned.

Classes of 1999 and 2004
Traditional Quad residence halls - either the newly renovated Campion or McCormick Halls. These rooms have two twin beds per room with shared bathrooms (separate for men and women) on each floor. These residence halls are air conditioned.

Class of 2009 and 2014
Traditional Quad residence halls. These rooms have two twin beds per room with shared bathrooms (separate for men and women) on each floor. These residence halls are not air conditioned.

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 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. - 6 p.m. and in Bellarmine Hall from 6:30 - 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. Please note that this also applies to those staying in suite-style rooms (two rooms with a shared bathroom); we cannot hold a side of a suite or guarantee that your requested suitemates will be placed on the other side of your suite if they register at a much later date.

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. Lightweight linens, towels, blankets, and pillows will be provided. You may want to bring along hangers, extra blankets, and extra towels. Fans are also recommended, particularly for those staying in a residence hall that is not air conditioned.

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

The deadline for the group rate and room blocks has passed. However, if you'd prefer not to stay on campus, there are a number of area hotels where you may still be able to book a room. 

For a full list of area hotels, visit fairfield.edu/hotels.
