Finding tasks in my.Fairfield 2.0

Access my.Fairfield 2.0 through any desktop or mobile browser.

my.Fairfield 2.0 supports access from smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. The interface is designed to be consistent and familiar, and provides simple but powerful search capabilities that help you quickly find and access the Fairfield University services you need to accomplish important tasks (e.g., finding classes, checking grades, and paying bills).

Search results are displayed as boxes with icons, similar to what you see in a mobile app store. Each box (or "task") represents a Fairfield University service and is identified by name and category.

Your search results also may include collections of related tasks called Task Centers:

Request for Assistance  

 

 Launch Pad

 

You also can search within specific categories of tasks (e.g., AdvisingNew Student, or Financial Aid).

my.Fairfield 2.0 uses search analytics to provide suggested results based on previous visits and the tasks performed by similar users. When you log in, you can select favorites for easy access, and set preferences.

To launch a task, click its badge; or (next to the badge), click the details icon ().  On the page that opens, click .

 

 

Note:

Tasks in my.Fairfield 2.0 are visible to everyone. You'll need to log in via using your NetID only when you launch tasks that are based on restricted Fairfield University services (e.g., Outlook, Gmail, Banner, Grades).
