Admission Office Visit Schedule

Fairfield University is open for in-person visits beginning July 8, 2020! Please be advised of the necessary precautions we will be taking to ensure the safety of everyone in Stag Country:

  • All visitors will be required to wear face masks on campus.
  • We strongly encourage visitors to register for a visit in advance. While we welcome walk-ins, if we exceed capacity on a given day/tour, we reserve the right to turn visitors away.
  • While we're thrilled to be welcoming families to our campus, please do not be offended that we will be refraining from shaking hands in the interest of public health.
  • If you are or someone in your party is feeling ill or showing any symptoms, please stay home.
  • Interviews remain an important part of our application process. For the foreseeable future, they will remain virtual only.

We are also excited to continue to offer you opportunities to visit us virtually and connect with our admission counselors online.

Campus Visits

Visiting campus is one of the best ways to learn more about Fairfield University's facilities, programs, faculty, and most importantly, our students. We encourage you to consider any or all of the following options for your visit.

Campus visits last approximately 90 minutes. A Visit consists of an Information Session led by one of our admission counselors followed by a Campus Tour. Information Sessions include an overview of academic life at Fairfield University, as well as the admission process and financial aid.

Campus Tours are led by one of our volunteer student tour ambassadors. Tours provide insight into student life at Fairfield University and include visits to the DiMenna-Nyselius Library, the Barone Campus Center, a residence hall room, a classroom, and Egan Chapel of St. Ignatius Loyola.

Group Visit Guidelines

Group Visits
 

Special Notice: Group visits are suspended for the indefinite future.

Thank you for your interest in Fairfield University. We are looking forward to welcoming your high school group to campus. In order to have the best experience, please follow the guidelines below:

 General Guidelines

  • We are only able to accommodate groups of high school students during the academic year (September through May). Groups containing students younger than high school may be accommodated during the summer months as space allows.
  • Please allow at least three (3) weeks' notice for all group visit requests.
  • Due to high demand, alternative dates are appreciated.
  • The maximum number of students for a group visit is 30. For every 10 students, at least one (1) chaperone is required (see Chaperone Policy below).
  • Please wait to receive a confirmation e-mail before arranging travel plans.

Chaperone Policy

The Office of Undergraduate Admission requires that groups visiting campus have one (1) chaperone per every ten (10) students. We ask that chaperones remain with their students at all times. In order to have the best possible experience, we limit the groups to a maximum of 40 students. Unruly and/or disrespectful behavior will result in the immediate request to leave campus and the organization will forfeit the opportunity to return in the future.

** Please plan accordingly and allow extra time for your arrival to campus, due to possible traffic. **
