Welcome home.

Residential life is perhaps the most distinctive feature of a Notre Dame undergraduate experience and unlike any other in American higher education. Just ask any undergraduate student about his or her time here and the story almost always begins in a residence hall with the people who formed that community. It’s where students first belonged, unconditionally, the moment their hall assignment was made. It’s the place they considered home and where their faith was nurtured through Sunday night Mass. It’s where they made lifelong friends, contributed to longstanding hall traditions, and created new ones. It’s also the thread—and often the conversation starter—that connects undergraduate alumni, years later, anywhere in the world.
