Main Entrance Closing April 15 - April 27, 2014

Beginning April 15, the front entrance of the Facilities Building will be closed due to the installation of shoring.  Access to the building during this time will be through the north entrance (facing Hessert).  Presuming that the weather is cooperative we anticipate re-opening the main entrance to pedestrian traffic on Monday April 28th.

Over the past several months, Notre Dame has announced the addition of several buildings to support the University’s aspiration to become a preeminent research university with a distinctive Catholic mission and an unsurpassed undergraduate education.

To prepare for future construction of these new buildings, work will begin on the campus infrastructure in March to prepare the underground utilities systems for future expansion.


Several major building construction projects have been announced during the 2013-14 academic year including Jenkins and Nanovic Hall, housing new social sciences and international institutes; the new facility for the School of Architecture; the Campus Crossroads Project; Phase 1 of a new research complex; and two new undergraduate residence halls. Work will begin in March to extend utilities to these future building sites.
