Fairfield Among Top Ten 2021 Best Catholic Colleges and Universities in U.S.

Ranked #6 nationally, Fairfield is the only Connecticut school in College Consensus' Top Ten.

Fairfield University has once again been ranked at the top of the 2021 College Consensus list of Best Catholic Colleges & Universities. At #6, Fairfield placed in the top ten alongside the University of Notre Dame, Georgetown, and Boston College.

Fairfield is one of only three New England colleges and universities to place atop the rankings, and is the only Connecticut school in the Top Ten.  

To determine the list of Best Catholic Colleges & Universities, rankings website College Consensus averaged the results of reputable national college ranking publishers including The Wall Street Journal, and U.S. News & World Report, to determine the “publisher rating.” Ratings were also gathered from reputable student review sites such as Cappex and Niche, to calculate an overall “student review rating.” A combined average, or college consensus score, was calculated from the publisher and student review scores.

Fairfield University’s continued high placement in national college rankings include distinctions in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges 2021 ranking, as well as on research website Niche’s 2021 Best Colleges in America list. The Princeton Review’s annual college rankings in The Best 386 Colleges: 2021 Edition granted Fairfield several national and regional distinctions, including placement on its lists of Best Northeastern Colleges, Best Value Colleges, and Green Colleges. Fairfield has also received high praise from student survey responses for professor quality and professor accessibility outside the classroom.
