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.

Great time visiting NDU with my son this past weekend during his baseball tournament. The campus was a good environment of educational opportunity. Clean, safe, and well managed. Several positive things to take in.

Make time to stroll around campus just to be there and to feel the history. We stopped by the stadium (of course), grotto, and book store. Just a cool place to say you've seen!

I do not believe you need a parking permit. However, the public parking is near the stadium and be prepared for a walk to the Grotto and Basilica.
