Off-Campus Housing Resources

Off-Campus Build-a-House

The Off-Campus Build-a-House application is open to all rising seniors, even if they did not participate in a Build-a-House their junior year on campus. The houses that are selected as an Off-Campus Build-a-House are released off campus regardless of their housing lottery number. The Build-a-House program is an excellent way for students to give back to the community and to spend the year focusing on a theme or project that is important to them.

Build-a-House participants will have the following expectations if selected:

  • Plan and implement at least one program based on your house's theme each semester with your advisor's approval
  • Submit programming forms and receipts to Residence Life in a timely manner
  • Meet with your advisor at least once a month and utilize your advisor as a mentor for your house and programs
  • Ensure that your house is represented in any Build-a-House meetings or in correspondences with the Off-Campus Coordinator
  • Follow all University policies and procedures
  • Adhere to the timeline for programming submitted as part of your application
  • Ensure that your house represents Fairfield University in the best light possible

Past houses have focused on issues and topics relating to:

  • Healthy living
  • Volunteering
  • Focus on specific issues such as Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer, Homelessness
  • Education
  • Multicultural awareness
  • And many others... be creative; the options are limitless!
