Residence Life

A Place to Call Home

res_lounge_vidFairfield University is a residential campus with approximately 2,600 full-time undergraduate students living on campus in residence halls, townhouses, and apartment complexes. Graduate student housing is also offered in independent off-campus houses, an apartment style residence hall (47 Mahan Road and Dolan Hall).

Consistent with its Jesuit mission, Fairfield University seeks to educate the whole person, and a great deal of learning takes place outside of the traditional classroom. Student life at Fairfield is defined by a mixture and balance of academic rigor, coeducational and extra-curricular pursuits, and service to others.

As a residential campus, life in the halls, townhouses, and apartments can and should be an integral part of the Fairfield undergraduate's four-year experience. Programs and activities specific to a hall or residential area are sponsored by our resident assistants and area coordinators. Residence Life staff members sponsor programs on their own but also partner with other Resident Assistants or offices such as the Recreation Department, Athletic Department, Student Engagement, Campus Ministry, and individual faculty or academic departments, to provide a diverse array of activities designed to enrich students' lives and help them be more fully engaged in the life of the University.

The residential experience is an integral part of the Fairfield undergraduate experience. Living in residence teaches and fosters a sense of shared and collective responsibility - responsibility to one's self, roommate(s), floor mates, and the campus community. Residential living at Fairfield University is is an experience, where learning is continuous.

The residential experience will challenge students to welcome, embrace, and develop relationships with students who are different from themselves. Numerous educational, social, cultural, service, and spiritual programs and activities are sponsored in the residence halls (and townhouse and apartment complex areas) to provide opportunities for personal growth, development, and fun.

Housing Options

Residential life at Fairfield University consists of a variety of housing options on campus, and housing is guaranteed for four years to all full-time, matriculated undergraduate students. In addition, students are required to remain resident students for four years unless they are able to commute from home or are otherwise released from this obligation by the Office of Residence Life.

Housing Lottery

Fairfield University guarantees the availability of University housing to all full-time undergraduate students who apply and are admitted as resident students for the duration of their undergraduate experience (i.e., all four years). Each year, the University holds a housing lottery to determine where students will live the following year.

Policies & Procedures

Policies and procedures governing life in the student residences are outlined in the Student Handbook. Policies specific to residential life are contained in the Residential Guidelines section. Students can request a copy of the Handbook from the Office of the Dean of Students or access it on the University's website.

Resident Jesuits

Members of the Society of Jesus - Jesuit priests - are a valued part of the residential living communities. In particular, those who live in residence help to foster a spiritual community within their respective areas and offer their presence, guidance, and counseling to their residents. Resident Jesuits offer Mass for their residents and may participate in floor or other hall programs and activities. Students are encouraged to reach out and get to know the Jesuits who live among them. They will find in them caring and dedicated men who have devoted their lives to and "for the greater glory of God" and the development and education of young men and women.
