St. Mary's Lake


Welcome Weekend, led by the Division of Student Affairs and the Center for University Advising, is packed with activities and events to celebrate this significant moment in the story of Notre Dame. Until then, you can begin to explore Welcome Weekend and your first steps as a student at Notre Dame by:


Cashless Campus

In an effort to maintain a healthy and more efficient campus, the University of Notre Dame has transitioned to a cashless retail environment. The change includes transactions at Notre Dame food service locations, dining halls, concession stands, and St. Michael’s Laundry. For individuals who do not have a credit or debit card, kiosks have been installed in the Duncan and LaFortune Student Centers where cash can be transferred to a Visa gift card to complete transactions on campus. The gift cards can be used anywhere Visa is accepted on or off campus at no additional charge. Learn more here.


COVID-19 Protocols

In order to create a safe and hospitable campus, visitors attending gatherings on Notre Dame's campus must comply with health and safety protocols outlined by University Enterprises and Events. If you have additional questions about our University community’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit
