The University of Notre Dame is a special place, and this is your invitation to see for it yourself. The Reilly Spring Visit 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. During your time on campus, you will attend classes, meet with faculty, stay with a current undergraduate student, and befriend other students who are considering Notre Dame. You’ll be treated like one of the family—the Notre Dame family.

Invitations to the Reilly Spring Visit Program are extended to a select group of students. Chosen from among our highest-achieving applicants, Reilly Spring Visit invitees demonstrate an impressive academic record along with intellectual curiosity, strong leadership skills, and dedication to service. To provide a personalized experience, the Reilly Spring Visit Program will be limited to around 150 students. This program is an all-expenses-paid trip to campus. Travel costs, meals, and programming expenses are covered by Notre Dame.

Pack Your Bags

If you will be flying to a Chicago airport, 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 Undergraduate 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 attendees from your area. 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.
To see which mode of transportation is best for you, please see our Travel to ND section.

Photo Tour

Notre Dame is a residential university with over 80 percent 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 Spring Visit Program attendee, you will stay with a current student in one of Notre Dame’s 30 single-sex residence halls. Your host’s contact information will be shared with you prior to your arrival on campus, and you can check out our suggested packing list and attire recommendations here.
