Office of Graduate Student Life

gradlifeclassThe vibrant student life at Fairfield isn't just reserved for undergraduates. In fact, we have an entire office dedicated to making sure the graduate experience doesn't end when you leave class. The Office of Graduate Student Life plans intellectual, social, and cultural events and programs just for graduate students, with the goal of creating a strong community. 

Past events have included wine tastings, volunteer opportunities, and grad award dinners. Visit our Facebook or Twitter pages to learn more about graduate student life at Fairfield. 

The Office of Graduate Student Life seeks to foster a sense of community among graduate students by organizing and planning intellectual, cultural, and social events, recreational outings, Jesuit service learning and other activities.

Each semester the Office of Graduate Student Life publishes a calendar with a variety of events and programs for graduate students.

 Graduate Assistantships

There are a limited number of graduate assistantships and other job opportunities available to formally admitted full and part-time graduate students at Fairfield University. Graduate assistants provide services to Fairfield such as administrative and faculty support. In return, these students are eligible to receive a tuition waiver and, in some cases, a stipend. Keep checking the website to see if there are openings.

Twitter and Facebook

Over the past three years we have built up our Facebook and Twitter followers. We continue to encourage you to "like" us on Facebook or "follow" us on Twitter. These accounts are regularly updated with events for graduate students, campus updates (cancelled classes, parking restrictions) and so much more! 

Graduate Student Assembly


The Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) is an advisory board made up of graduate students from each program, working together to assist and advocate for the graduate student experience and the Jesuit character of our programs.

The GSA acts as the liaison between the graduate student body and the University administration. They help plan and coordinate the semester events. If you are interested in attending a Graduate Student Assembly meeting, we encourage you to attend!
