The University of Notre Dame is a special place, and this is your invitation to see for yourself. The Reilly Visitation Program is a four-day campus immersion complete with academic, social, and spiritual opportunities designed to let you experience Notre Dame beyond the viewbook and campus tour. You’ll live among current students. You’ll attend classes. You’ll meet your future professors. You’ll be treated like one of the family- the Notre Dame family.

Invitations to the Reilly Visitation Program are given to a select group of students. Chosen from among the best of our applicant pool, Reilly invitees demonstrate an impressive academic record along with intellectual curiosity, strong leadership skills, and dedication to extracurricular activities. To provide a personalized experience, the Reilly Visitation Program will be limited to approximately 80 students.  This program is an all-expenses-paid trip to campus. Travel costs*, meals, and programming expenses are covered by Notre Dame.

*If applicable, you are responsible for any checked baggage fees at the airport. A reimbursement will be issued upon request.

Pack Your Bags

If you will be flying to Chicago or South Bend, the information you provide on the online registration form will be forwarded to our travel agent, who will book your ticket. Airline tickets will be issued electronically in an email after reservations are made by Anthony Travel, the official travel partner of Notre Dame. Upon your arrival you will be greeted by a staff member from the Office of Admissions. Transportation from the airport to campus will be provided.

If you will be driving to campus, we will reimburse you appropriately for gas and toll costs and provide a complimentary on-campus parking pass. Let us know if you are interested in carpooling, and we can put you in contact with other Reilly attendees from your area. Driving directions (via Google Maps) are available HERE. Please plan on departing campus on Tuesday morning as Monday’s programming runs late into the evening.

There are also train and bus options to Notre Dame.

Notre Dame is a residential university with over 80% of its undergraduate student population living on campus. Our residence halls promote a strong campus community, and we want you to be a part of it. As a Reilly Visitation Program attendee, you will stay with a current student in one of Notre Dame’s 29 single-sex residence halls. Your host’s contact information will be shared with you prior to your arrival on campus, and we’ll also provide you with a suggested packing list.
