UND - September 17, 2015


NOTRE DAME, Ind. - University of Notre Dame alumnus Robert H. Harris and his wife, Mary Ellen, have made a $5.5 million gift to his alma mater to underwrite the construction of a stadium for the Fighting Irish track and field teams.

The Harris Family Track and Field Stadium will be built on the west side of the nine-lane outdoor track and field facility in the southeast corner of the Notre Dame campus.

This gift, coupled with their previous donation in 2008 toward the completion of the track, will have a lasting impact on the transformation of the track and field program, said Jack Swarbrick, Notre Dame vice president and director of athletics.

B1 parking lot - On Monday, June 1 the Parking Lot at Notre Dame Avenue and Holy Cross Drive (south of the Hesburgh Center for International Studies) will become a construction site for the future Jenkins Hall and Nanovic Hall. Faculty and staff who use this lot will have two nearby alternative options for parking during the workday:  1) The BK-1 lot along Holy Cross Drive between the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore and Cedar Grove Cemetery will have open parking for anyone, including faculty and staff. 2) The visitor lot at Holy Cross Drive and Eddy Street across from the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center will become a gated lot for faculty and staff during normal business hours.  Pedestrians will still have use of walkways surrounding the project site, including several that meet Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility guidelines, for easy access to buildings in the area.
