Living & Working in Fairfield

Fairfield University is situated on a beautiful, 200-acre campus with easy access to New York City and picturesque views of the Long Island Sound. Voted by Money Magazine in 2006 as the 9th "best place to live" in the U.S. and the best place to live in the Northeast, the town of Fairfield is set along the Gold Coast of Connecticut where breezy beaches, a thriving arts community, and premiere restaurants abound. With good schools and a vibrant downtown, Fairfield attracts and welcomes new residents of all ages.
