Fairfield University is dedicated to developing your whole person - to your intellectual, spiritual, and physical growth. Which is why we encourage participation in our 25 sport clubs and 20+ intramural activities.
Sport clubs are organized and managed by students. Since club sport teams play other colleges, the Associate Director of Recreation oversees things like memberships and dues. Intramural teams only play on Fairfield grounds, and therefore are overseen and administered by students.
