Virtual Visits

Fairfield loves when students come to campus to experience the special place we've built in Stag Country, and we can't wait until you have the opportunity to experience it yourself.

Until then, the Office of Admission has 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 Office of Admission offers a virtual tour experience that gives prospective students the opportunity to explore Fairfield’s 200-acre campus and its surrounding community with the click of a button. 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.
