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.

We had the opportunity to go to a Notre Dame game but more importantly spending time on the campus was awesome and would recommend visiting and experiencing the campus and the activities on home game weekends. The band is awesome, the dome is spectacular, they have bagpipers, the basilica is beautiful and the history of the campus is very interesting.... More

This beautiful campus was ranked the top college campus in the US. It is well worth a a tour in most any weather. Tours can be arranged near the main campus entrance (check with campus entrance guards for the exact location). If wandering by yourself, make sure to visit the Grotto, the Main Building (under the Golden Dome), Sacred Heart... More

The building are amazing, and when we toured the main building w the cathedral inside we were amazed. Beautiful architecture, beautiful art work. Definitely want to return and... More

Three of us arrived on a snowy Saturday, not knowing much at all about the campus and how to find the football field. Everyone we asked for help was quite helpful in steering us across campus to the football stadium. It was neat to see the 'golden dome' and 'touchdown Jesus' for myself. While the stadium shows its age, it... More

Awesome. Visited for my first football game in November 2016. The campus is beautiful. Leave yourself a few hours just to walk around the campus. The grotto was just gorgeous (especially at night). We participated in a evening mass after the game and this is a (must do) as part of the Notre Dame experience. It was so fun to... More

We visited Notre Dame yesterday for the Virginia Tech vs Notre Dame football game. We are Virginia Tech fans and try to go to several away games each year. The Notre Dame fans were the best! Every person that we encountered while touring Notre Dame Campus and every person at the football stadium was always saying things like "welcome to... More

Loved taking the campus tour. Very informative and steeped with rich history. Enjoyed a hockey game and being with the fans. Then next day onto a football game. The atmosphere was next to none. We loved all the people the students are great and the energy was amazing. So much fun. If you get the chance to visit and take... More

Lovely college campus. Be sure to visit the Grotto. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and Mass was in full swing, the church bells rang on and on.

A very clean and welcoming campus steeped in history. All of the buildings were worthy of capturing in a photo. The friendliness of the staff in answering questions and pointing out assets was appreciated.
