More detailed event parking information will be announced at a later date on the Experience Notre Dame website. Ticket purchasers will receive information in coming weeks.

Redesigned Main Entrance is Complete

Main Gate

Construction is complete on the main entrance to campus, which includes a new gatehouse, updated traffic flow and landscaping. 

The Main Gate entrance along Notre Dame Avenue has added a non-gated lane dedicated to bookstore traffic. The Main Gate entrance to the inner part of campus now includes both a visitor lane and one dedicated to faculty and staff utilizing the new digitally enhanced hang tags. The new hang tag technology allows drivers hands-free access to gated campus entrances without the need for proximity cards or clickers to open gates. These physical updates, all incorporated to relieve traffic congestion, also include a turnaround lane for vehicles redirected after arriving at the gatehouse.

“The main gate to our interior campus road network was redesigned with the intent to make it more welcoming and user-friendly for both visitors and members of our campus community,” said Doug Marsh, vice president for facilities design and operations and University architect. “The revised traffic pattern should improve access to campus for vehicles with valid hang tags while providing separate lanes for those seeking bookstore parking or visitors asking for directions.”

Improvements to the bookstore parking lot were completed in August along with the conversion of the basketball courts west of the bookstore into parking for faculty and staff. New basketball courts, along with pickleball courts, have been constructed west of the current site.


The retail bookstore lot remains a timed 1-hour parking lot for those visiting the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore. All other Bookstore "Faculty/Staff" parking lots are now gated, with signage in place to indicate "Faculty/Staff Parking - Valid Permit Required". These lots will require valid Faculty/Staff parking permits for gate access and parking (even when all gate arms are up for maintenance.)  Students should now refrain from using these (and all other campus faculty/staff parking lots) during business hours (6am to 4pm, Monday through Friday).   

NEW Faculty/Staff "Enhanced Hang Tag" parking permits are ready to pick up now!

These new permits make accessing campus and gated parking lots much easier. Watch this video to learn more...

If you find that your current (white) proximity card no longer opens the gate please be sure to try your IRISH1 card. You will see a "New Irish1 Card Reader" has been installed. Hold your card up to and against the reader. If your account has authorization to park in a faculty/staff lot, the gate will open.

While your current faculty/staff permit is valid through August, 2023, the proximity card readers will be taken out of service beginning December 19, 2022. We encourage you to stop by the Parking Services office in Hammes Mowbray Hall to pick up your new Enhanced Hang Tag (EHT) parking permits if you have not already done so.
