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.

Enjoyed an extraordinary weekend at Notre Dame for the USC game in October. The amenities on campus were terrific and the upgrades to the stadium we're spectacular. Hope to return soon.

The buildings are so beautiful! We only had a small amount of time there (maybe one half hour to an hour) but what we saw we admired. We could have stayed and walked around for much more time.

A beautiful campus, worth taking the time to walk. It looks like what you expect a college to look like. The walk from the Basilica to the main entrance is a good quick walk.

We were able to walk around a bit before a football game. Lots to see and the campus is fairly spread out. It was spitting rain and cold so we didn't get to see as much as we wanted to. The dorms all have grills...More

We toured the campus before the football game and what a great time we all had. Probably the best looking campus we have seen with a ton of history.

We have toured numerous campuses, but Notre Dame was truly incredible. The entire campus feels very cohesive and well laid-out. The students all seem not just happy, but enthusiastic to be here and very proud of their school. All of the staff were extremely helpful...More

No. I am not sure about organized tours, but I think they’re free. We were there on a game day, so there were a lot of volunteers to help.
