Located in the DiMenna-Nyselius Library, the Academic Commons is a technology-rich resource offering support services to promote student and faculty success.

The Academic Commons represents the next step in the University’s efforts to accommodate the changing needs of our students.

— Associate Vice Provost for Pedagogical Innovation and Effectiveness, Jay Rozgonyi

Over the summer, the DiMenna-Nyselius Library underwent a series of renovations to accommodate Fairfield’s new Academic Commons. The Academic Commons is a hub of intellectual life for students and faculty of all disciplines, and includes the following support services:

  • Academic Support and Retention
  • Center for Academic Excellence
  • DiMenna-Nyselius Library
  • Fredrickson Family Innovation Lab
  • ITS Help Desk
  • Math Center
  • Office of Accessibility
  • The Writing Center 

“The Academic Commons represents the next step in the University’s efforts to accommodate the changing needs of our students,” said associate vice provost for pedagogical innovation and effectiveness, Jay Rozgonyi. “Just as we responded to the demand for more collaborative spaces in the new Egan and Dolan Schools, we’ve consolidated a number of key student-centric services on the main floor of the DiMenna-Nyselius Library to form the Academic Commons. By doing so, we’ve streamlined academic support services for the campus community, from computer support, to math tutoring, to academic advising." 

On Friday, October 4 from 2 to 4:30 p.m. students, faculty, and staff are invited to tour the DiMenna-Nyselius Library and see the newly renovated Academic Commons space and Café area, while meeting campus representatives from each division. Refreshments will be served.
