Office of Graduate Student Life

The 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.

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.

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!
