? What is my.Fairfield ?
my.Fairfield is Fairfield University’s portal.
A portal, by our definition, is a place with information pertinent and useful to each set of constituents within the Fairfield University Community: Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni. Information contained in the portal, my.Fairfield, is secured by requiring each user to sign in with their unique NetID username and password. Once signed in to the portal constituents view common pieces of information, such as parking, housing, registration, University announcements and such, as well as information unique to them: class schedules, tax forms, health benefits, advising information and more.
Also within my.Fairfield are shortcuts, found in the "LaunchPad", to access frequently-used software used across the University such as Outlook email for Faculty and Staff, Gmail for Students, BlackBoard course management, Lynda.com learning video system and more. Once signed in to my.Fairfield users click the link to access a page permissioned for them in each system.
