COVID-19

At present, masks are required inside all University facilities, regardless of vaccination status. When indoors, masks may only be removed briefly while eating and drinking, or when in your own room in a residence hall. In addition, Fairfield University recommends that all visitors be vaccinated or be able to produce results of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of a campus visit. This website will be continually updated as we get closer to Reunion Weekend, as guidelines continue to evolve in cooperation with state and local authorities. For more information regarding Fairfield's COVID-19 policies and response, visit fairfield.edu/healthyu.

Children

Children and grandchildren are welcome at the Taste of Fairfield and other daytime activities on Saturday. Please be sure to include children’s names in your registration. Children are not permitted at the Friday night receptions or Saturday evening dinner dance. Due to limited space, we are unable to provide overnight on-campus accommodations for children.

Smoking and Drug Policy

As of January 1, 2018, Fairfield University is designated as a smoke-free, tobacco-free environment. The use of tobacco and tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, dipping tobacco or snuff, and electronic cigarettes on campus is prohibited. In addition, all illegal substances are prohibited on campus. Anyone found in violation of this policy will be dealt with appropriately by the Department of Public Safety and the Fairfield Police Department.

On-Campus Payment Methods

Walk-in registrations for event tickets and housing (when available) may be paid for via cash or credit card. Drink tickets for the Friday night reception at the DSB, as well for the Bellarmine Dinner Dance on Saturday, are CASH ONLY. Cash is also recommended for the purchase of additional food vouchers at the Taste of Fairfield, as credit card purchases will need to be processed inside the Kelley Center at the registration desk. There is a Bank of America ATM located on the Second Floor of the Barone Campus Center for your convenience.

Dietary requirements, food allergies, and/or accessible parking or housing for the physically challenged can be arranged with advance notice. Please call us with any special needs at (203) 254-4280.

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.

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

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 options will be shared closer to Reunion Weekend.

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.

Friday housing key pick-up will be in the Aloysius P. Kelley Center from 4 - 10 p.m. Saturday housing key pick-up will be in the Kelley Center from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. and in Bellarmine Hall from 6:30 - 9 p.m.

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.

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 pillows and blankets, and extra towels. Fans are also recommended, particularly for those staying in a residence hall that is not air conditioned.
