Where is Sacred Heart University?

Conveniently located in Fairfield, Connecticut, just 55 miles northeast of New York City, Sacred Heart University is situated in the center of corporate America and is easily accessible by automobile, bus, train and airplane. The hustle and bustle of big city life in NYC and Boston is not far from Fairfield – nor is the natural beauty of Connecticut's scenic coastline, providing a variety of experience few private liberal arts colleges can match.

Beyond the opportunities for learning and living on the Sacred Heart University campus, Fairfield County offers a remarkable variety of cultural and recreational activities—and if you're looking for employment, it's home to numerous Fortune 500 companies. From museums and historical sites, to shopping and theater, Fairfield County is a great place to call home.
