Plan Your Visit

Welcome to the University of Notre Dame!

The University is currently evaluating the potential for families of graduates to safely attend. We understand this is an incredibly important moment for graduates and will provide information as it becomes available. Until this time, families are strongly encouraged not to make non-refundable travel arrangements.
