Renowned for its rich athletic tradition, the university is a beautiful place to visit, with such religious attractions as the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, the park-like setting of its huge stadium and the abundant artwork.

Hadn't been here for 30 years since my brother attended, my son is there now and what a difference that time has made, its much larger than it had been and they did it without deviating from the style. Most impressive campus I have ever been on.

From the Grotto to the Basilica, loaded with history and beauty. You can walk through the campus yourself or sign up for a guided tour.

This is a small college of approximately 10,000 students. If you ever get there be sure to check out the church as it is beyond your wildness dreams. Other places to do is take a tour of Rockne stadium. Make sure you see Purcell basketball stadium as well as the Compton ice arena . You could easily spend the entire... More

Decided to stop, as many people have recommended at least looking around campus. My husband and I went "Pokemon go'ing" and got completely lost in the many sidewalks and large lawns of this university. This isn't a bad thing, mind you, it's just amazing how large and beautiful this campus is. I can't imagine the amount of debt students probably... More

The campus is spectacular and the reputation of the professors is what makes this one of the leading universities in the country.Touring this campus and the basilica make you understand what The Fighting Irish are all about.

As a graduate of a fairly large campus (University of Montreal), I am accustomed to student-based areas. The University of Notre-Dame fully deserve its prestige solely with its site. Impeccable buildings, meticulously well maintained grass, ultra clean streets. Wow. If you can afford it, 65k$ per year will get you in if you have the required grades. You can also... More

I've always thought that the campus is one of the prettiest in the world. The education one receives here is amazing. Brought both of our rising seniors to visit and now they understand why I have always said God first, then family and service to others. I love the fact that they still believe in this. The greatest gift that... More
