Virtual Tour Offers Interactive Glimpse Into Life at Fairfield

The University's new 360-degree online experience gives prospective students the chance to tour Fairfield’s modern campus and surrounding community from anywhere in the world.

As Fairfield becomes more national in scope, it's exciting to be able to engage with prospective students from around the nation and the world in a meaningful way.

— Alison Hildenbrand, director of Admission

Fairfield University has partnered with immersive technology company YouVisit to develop a fully updated and interactive virtual tour that gives prospective students the opportunity to explore Fairfield’s 200-acre campus and surrounding community with the click of a button.

The fully immersive online experience is designed to simulate a traditional campus visit and offers users 360-degree views of the University’s modern facilities and scenic grounds while providing useful information about Fairfield academics and student life.

"As Fairfield becomes more national in scope, it's exciting to be able to engage with prospective students from around the nation and the world in a meaningful way,” said Alison Hildenbrand, director of Admission. “Offering students the opportunity to ‘visit’ our beautiful campus from the comfort of their home is an important way to generate interest from prospective students beyond our core market. It is also a useful tool for students who may not have the resources to visit Fairfield, but would like to experience campus prior to applying or enrolling."

Upon starting the tour, users are transported to the University’s main entrance where they are led on an interactive walk through campus hosted by a friendly and informative virtual tour guide named Nate. From there, users have the option to stop and explore more than fifteen different point of interest on campus, including academic buildings like the Bannow Science Center and Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies, as well as student gathering spots like the newly renovated recreational complex, Tully Dining Commons, and the brand-new 42 Langguth Residence Hall.

Once the campus tour is completed, users also have the option to explore the surrounding Fairfield area by taking a mini-tour of the University’s popular Downtown Bookstore, in addition to Fairfield Beach — a breathtaking respite just minutes from campus where students have the option of living during their senior year.
