Our Mission: Your Success.
Fairfield Bellarmine is a bold, innovative effort to address the challenges of access and affordability in Jesuit higher education.
Our mission is to provide a Jesuit and Catholic education that is accessible and affordable and empowers underrepresented students to realize their God-given potential and serve their communities.
Our vision is:
In the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis, Fairfield Bellarmine’s administration and faculty members take a holistic approach to the personal and professional development of our students — caring for them in mind, body, and spirit.Meet the Administration & Faculty

As matriculated Fairfield University students, Fairfield Bellarmine undergraduates have full access to the University’s 1073 North Benson campus resources located approximately seven miles away in Fairfield, CT 06824.
What's Going On
The Fairfield University community celebrated the opening of its new Bellarmine Campus with representatives from the Diocese of Bridgeport, community leaders, state representatives, philanthropic partners, faculty, staff, and members of the inaugural Fairfield Bellarmine Class of 2025.
The first cohort of Fairfield Bellarmine students and their families were welcomed to Stag Country during weekend events on July 8 & 9.
The new team will lead Fairfield Bellarmine, offering strong professional preparation and enhanced academic support to the region's underserved students interested in earning an associate's degree as a first step toward a bachelor's degree or a meaningful career.
Student success is empowered by philanthropy.
Our unique two-year associate’s degree program accompanies students every step of the way to ensure student retention and success through enhanced academic supports, professional preparation, and wrap-around services such as meals, transportation assistance, and technology. Philanthropy is the key to ensuring students complete their degree with little to no debt.
