When is Welcome Week: Fall 2021?
Classes are scheduled to begin on Monday, Aug. 23, 2021. We anticipate Welcome Week will begin for all first-year students and two guests on Friday, Aug. 20. Programming for parents and families will conclude on the evening of Saturday, Aug. 21. Additional student-only opportunities and events will continue throughout the first week of classes. Welcome Week will begin for transfer students on either Aug. 20 or Aug. 21. These dates are tentative and may change as our University community continues to closely monitor and adapt to the developing health risks of the coronavirus pandemic. We look forward to confirming and clarifying details, dates, and schedules in July 2021.
In partnership with local and national health authorities, we are in the midst of determining the safest manner to facilitate the arrival of all students and joyfully celebrate your family’s entry into our community. Our priority is to safely welcome you and your family into the vibrant and radically hospitable campus community that makes Notre Dame so special. We will share information as it is finalized, and we encourage you to monitor the Welcome Week website. Thank you for your patience and understanding as, together, we navigate these next weeks.
