Renowned for its rich athletic tradition, the university is a beautiful place to visit, with such religious attractions as the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, the park-like setting of its huge stadium and the abundant artwork.

The buildings are pretty. The people are friendly. It's very walkable and very pretty. We stopped in the visitors center. They gave us a map and pointed out the "must sees." We spent a lovely day exploring.

The Notre Dame campus is the most beautiful place in South Bend by architecture and natural setting. Definitely go there for at least 30 min visit (you can freely enter most of the buildings); plenty of free parking. Now, there are several restaurants on the...More

Classes are hard but people are cool. Einstein bagels delivers, which makes me happy. I wish there was a chick-fil-a. SDH has mints!!!

6th time here and it never gets old. Beautiful campus with an energy like no other. The blue and gold scrimmage in the spring is a must see too! Spring colors are breathtaking. Make a point to walk around the lake and see the grotto....More

Enjoyed an extraordinary weekend at Notre Dame for the USC game in October. The amenities on campus were terrific and the upgrades to the stadium we're spectacular. Hope to return soon.

The buildings are so beautiful! We only had a small amount of time there (maybe one half hour to an hour) but what we saw we admired. We could have stayed and walked around for much more time.

No. I am not sure about organized tours, but I think they’re free. We were there on a game day, so there were a lot of volunteers to help.
