Group Visit Guidelines

Group Visits
Thank you for your interest in Fairfield University. We are looking forward to welcoming your group to campus. In order to have the best experience, please follow and abide by the guidelines listed below:

General Guidelines

  • Please allow at least 3 weeks notice for all group visit requests.
  • Due to high demand, alternative dates are appreciated.
  • Group visits are ONLY OFFERED for incoming juniors and seniors.
  • The maximum number of students for a group visit is 50. For every 10 students, at least 1 chaperone is required (see Chaperone Policy below).
  • We are unable to accomodate groups on weekends due to a large volume of visitors.
  • Lunch is available in our dining hall for $10 per person which can be paid upon arrival in cash or by check made out to: Fairfield University Office of Undergraduate Admission
  • Please wait to receive a confirmation e-mail before arranging travel plans.

Chaperone Policy

The Office of Undergraduate Admission requires that groups visiting campus have one (1) chaperone per every ten (10) students. We ask that chaperones remain with their students at all times. In order to have the best possible experience, we limit the groups to a maximum of fifty (50) students. Unruly and/or disrespectful behavior will result in the immediate request to leave campus and the organization will forfeit the opportunity to return in the future.

** Please plan accordingly and allow extra time for your arrival to campus, due to possible traffic. **
