Summers at Fairfield University are anything but quiet. Whether you're a college student looking to catch up on credits, a high school student yearning for a taste of college life, or a lifelong learner interested in expanding your knowledge, we offer dozens of courses for credit, residential high school programs, and engaging youth camps for students of all ages to explore.
As an added bonus, Fairfield’s campus is located less than five minutes from the beautiful coastline of Long Island Sound, an attribute that landed our University as one of TIME’s Money Magazine’s “Ten Best Colleges for Beach Lovers.” That means you can spend each morning before class running along the sandbar at low tide or end your day with a breathtaking sunset on Jennings Beach.
Catch up on credits, lighten your course load, or get ahead of your studies with one or more of Fairfield’s summer session courses. Traditional and online courses are available in a variety of disciplines and are offered during three separate sessions in May, June, and July.
Fairfield University hosts a variety of opportunities for high school students to enrich their academic and social development during the summer months. Our programs offers students the opportunity to live on campus, earn college credits, and meet classmates from around the country – all while experiencing the excitement of college life.
Whether your child is interested in the arts, computer sciences, or athletics, Fairfield University hosts a variety of more than 15 summer camps for kids of all ages, grades 1-12.
