Support, Resources, and Programming

The Division of Student Affairs aspires to serve as a trusted resource, helping to connect students with information regarding health, development, faith, residential life, extracurricular interests, and future endeavors. For questions or concerns, please email

HERE This Week

Our success as a community depends on everyone adhering to health and safety practices. We must also hold one another accountable. This starts with grace and understanding, and recognizing that these are new habits for all of us. It also involves being an active bystander by kindly reminding your peers to comply. Emphasize that adopting these practices protects us all.

Any member of the campus community can share concerns about individuals engaged in unsafe practices by using this form. The relevant University office will follow up on these reports promptly.

Students who have questions or concerns related to testing, the daily health check, contact tracing, quarantine and isolation, or any other University resources or protocols can also call the 24/7 CRU hotline at 574-634-HERE or email

Each week, the University will release one or more experiential videos outlining what students can expect HERE on campus this fall. 

Students are also encouraged to participate in a live Instagram Q&A every Tuesday and Friday. A question sticker will be posted to the Notre Dame Instagram story in the morning and staff will continue to respond to your questions all day.
