North or South Dining Hall

Ready to eat like a college student? The Notre Dame dining halls serve delicious food of all kinds—from stir fry to pasta to special ND waffles, a campus favorite. We’ll provide admitted students and guests with two complimentary dining hall meals so you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner alongside our current students. South Dining Hall is the more traditional of our two dining halls, while the newly renovated North Dining Hall offers a contemporary setting.  Dining hall offerings accommodate various nutritional needs, including gluten-free and vegan, and menus change daily.

Residential Life at Notre Dame: Creating Community

Inspired by the mission of the Congregation of Holy Cross, residential life is central to the Notre Dame experience and is one of the most distinctive features of undergraduate life. Join members of Residential Life for a conversation about the traditions, the friendships, and the community found in your home under the Dome. You'll also learn about the unique aspects of residence hall living, such as senior leadership, integrated class living, random first-year assignments, a stay-hall model, and hall traditions that ground Notre Dame residence halls in the Holy Cross pillar of family.

Welcome by University Leaders

Join us for an official welcome from administrative and student leaders. This celebratory event will be followed by a dessert reception.

College Information Sessions

It all starts in the First Year of Studies. In this session, students and families will learn about the academic home for all first-year students at Notre Dame. Following that session, representatives of our degree-granting colleges will offer sessions on the academic offerings, resources, and opportunities that exist for students.

Academic Experience (Admitted Students Only)

Want to know what it's really like to attend class at Notre Dame? Each college will offer admitted students a tailored program with a glimpse into the academic environment that exists within the college as well as the opportunity to interact with faculty.

Understanding Your Notre Dame Financial Aid

Alumni Panel: Four Years Becomes a Lifetime

This is your opportunity to hear from someone who's been there. Moderated by the Notre Dame Alumni Association, panelists will include alumni and representatives from the Center for Career Development. The discussion will range from college experiences to careers, as well as resources and support for students and how they stay connected to the University community beyond graduation.

Student Resource Fair

Meet our campus community. A variety of campus units, including academic, extracurricular, and student support services, will be on hand to share information about opportunities for student involvement. Students and families will also learn about resources that support student development and wellbeing.
