A Place To Call Home

Fairfield 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, and in an apartment style residence hall (47 Mahan Road and Dolan Hall).

As a residential campus, life in the halls, townhouses, and apartments are an integral part of the Fairfield undergraduate’s four-year experience. Programs and activities specific to a hall or residence area, are sponsored by resident assistants and area coordinators, or in partnership with other offices and departments to provide students with numerous educational, social, cultural, service, and spiritual programs and activities for personal growth, development, and fun. Programs range from game nights and movie nights, to mentoring sessions and retreats, to career development workshops and guest speakers, to residence area community athletic game fundraisers, and many more. These diversely designed programs enrich the students’ loves and help them be more fully engaged in the life of the University.

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 an experience, where learning is continuous.

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.
