More than 80 percent of Fairfield University undergraduates live on campus, meaning that when you sign up for a meal plan, chances are you'll run into a few of your friends at every meal. You can choose from a variety of dining options, including deli, grill, and vegetarian options. We even encourage students to share their favorite recipes from home, so we can provide a wider and more popular selection of menu items.
