Visitor and Mask Reminder
Visitors are welcome on campus. However, due to the University’s inability to verify the vaccination status of those outside our highly vaccinated campus community, all visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear masks inside campus buildings at all times. Masks are also required (except when eating and drinking) in the public areas of these campus buildings during times when these spaces are generally open to the public. Additionally, while University academic and administrative buildings remain accessible to visitors, guests who are not Notre Dame students, faculty, or staff are not permitted in the residence halls.
On home football game weekends, please note the following masking guidelines for the LaFortune and Duncan Student Centers and the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.
