Fairfield University is pleased to reopen its campus for in-person tours and socially-distant information sessions this summer with additional safety precautions in place for prospective students and their families.
In order to ensure utmost safety and comfort for all guests, visitors are strongly encouraged to register for a campus tour prior to arriving to campus, and all those in attendance are required to wear face masks or coverings throughout their time on campus. Visits will begin with an information session led by one of Fairfield’s admissions counselors, which will include an overview of academic life and admission process at Fairfield University. The information sessions will be followed by a 60-minute campus tour with a student tour ambassador. Through this two-part experience, prospective students and families will be able to ask questions, see the campus, and receive a unique tour experience.
In-person campus tours are currently available Monday through Thursday, at 9:00 a.m., 10:30 a.m., and 1:30 p.m., and on Fridays at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
Virtual opportunities will still be available, including virtual tours, information sessions, and student interviews with admission staff. Virtual visits can also be scheduled with the Charles F. Dolan School of Business, Marion Peckham Egan School of Nursing and Health Studies, School of Engineering, or College of Arts and Sciences.
