In one section of the Lithic Lab in the basement of Flanner Hall, a half-dozen piles of chipped rock litter the floor from students learning to make obsidian tools from the Neanderthal Age. In another area, students study life during the Irish Famine through examination of pottery, coins and clay pipes unearthed last summer beside an abandoned home on an Irish island.
From the beginning, Notre Dame has never let convention limit our dreams. Especially when there's an opportunity for bold action.
The Campus Crossroads Project is a chance to maximize the potential of one of the most recognizable and centrally located buildings on campus: Notre Dame Stadium. Our commitment to providing an unsurpassed undergraduate experience drives this plan to bring academics, athletics, and student life together.
More than 750,000 square feet of teaching, research, and performance space. Student life and recreation facilities. Cutting-edge digital media resources. An enhanced gameday experience. The largest building project in our history. This is how Notre Dame plans to awaken a sleeping giant and infuse it with life and learning every day of the year. This is our unconventional dream.
The west building boasts space designed to enhance student development and formation.
- Meeting rooms, graduate and undergraduate student lounges, a dining area, and student organization space
- New recreational sports facilities
- Career services center, with interview, advising, and training space
- A 500-seat student ballroom
The Department of Music and the Sacred Music at Notre Dame program will move into the much needed, state-of-the-art performance and rehearsal space. The Frank Leahy Gate will continue to be located here.
- Recital and rehearsal halls
- Music library, relocated from the Hesburgh Library
- Frank Leahy Gate
- A club/lounge
The east building will be the new home of the Departments of Anthropology and Psychology. In addition, a digital media center will position Notre Dame as a national leader in a growing component of higher education.
- Anthropology and psychology labs, offices, and student lounges
- Flexible club/classroom space
- Digital media center with 2,000-square-foot studio, and production, teaching, and research facilities
After the project is complete, Notre Dame Stadium will hold an estimated 3,000 to 4,000 more fans to cheer on the Fighting Irish.
- Club-level seating in the east and west buildings
- A re-imagined grand entrance to the stadium, at Frank Leahy Gate
- New scoreboard over the south side of the stadium
- Improved broadband coverage
- Modernized concession facilities
