Campus Construction

The University of Notre Dame is in the midst of one of the most significant periods of construction in its history: A combined 1.4 million square feet of research, classroom, residence, and student life space is being built on campus. But the exciting part is what will take place inside these buildings. More than bricks and mortar, these facilities represent new venues for discovery and learning that will fuel our ongoing commitment to academic excellence and an unsurpassed student experience. Explore this map to learn more about the expanded academic, research and student life opportunities currently under construction.

The top three levels will feature hospitality space for football weekends and throughout the year, and a press box.
