Virtual Visits

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

  • All visitors will be required to wear 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 don't 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 ill or showing symptoms, please stay home.
  • Interviews remain an important part of our application process. For the foreseeable future, they will remain virtual only.

The Office of Admission has also developed a series of virtual opportunities for students and families to “visit” campus from the comfort of their couch and connect with members of the University’s community online. With just the click of a button, students can attend a virtual information session, video conference with a counselor, or fully immerse themselves in a 360-degree virtual campus tour.

Virtual Campus Tours

The fully immersive online experience is designed to simulate a traditional campus visit and offers users 360-degree views of the University’s modern facilities and scenic grounds while providing useful information about Fairfield academics and student life.
