Pretty Good for College Facility

My team plays in an NFL stadium so we're a bit spoiled (i.e. no adult bevs here!). However, this facility is pretty nice and though we were in end zone (visiting team tickets) the... read more

My team plays in an NFL stadium so we're a bit spoiled (i.e. no adult bevs here!). However, this facility is pretty nice and though we were in end zone (visiting team tickets) the view was great. I was most impressed with the stadium personnel--they did a terrific job of directing, herding, controlling while being very friendly, Seats/benches are a... More

While I appreciate the history in this stadium, I didn't appreciate the very narrow (and not cheap) bench/bleacher seats. While we were fortunate to attend before it got to cold outside I can't imagine how jammed in your seat you would be with a heavy coat on. The stadium was clean and the staff were friendly.

We were there for the UM vs Notre Dame game October 29, 2016. The ND fans were all very nice...no complaints. The view from our seats was good - the actual seats were wooden benches, I think its time for an upgraded. There were no TVs for replay views, so that was a little disappointing. The experience was good overall.... More

We stopped at Notre Dame on the way through Indiana. The stadium was not opened and the guard would not let us in to visit. You could see the field through the gate and you could take picture of the All American Helmets from the outside of the stadium. If you want to see the stadium make sure it is... More

Was lucky to get GREAT tickets from a friend. All the ushers, etc. were wonderful. Walked the entire stadium before the Stanford game and took many many pictures. Hard to take it all in in one visit. Our seats gave us a remarkable view of the East scoreboard, the Golden Dome and Touchdown Jesus. Quite an impressive sight. Sight lines... More

What an amazing experience. The beauty of the campus, the tradition and the enthusiasm. Get there early for all of the fun but it keeps going all day and night.

Several times each weekday there are tours offered of the Notre Dame Football Stadium. It costs $15, or $10 for students and seniors. You'll get a lanyard and a placard to keep as a souvenir. The tour lasted a little over an hour, and you'll get some great historical information. You'll also walk through the Joyce Center, home of the... More

My wife is a long time Notre Dame fan who has dreamed of seeing a Notre Dame Football game. For her birthday, we were able to secure seats on the 25 yard line 5 rows up for their recent game against Stanford. The campus is laid out perfectly with the football stadium just about dead center on campus. This makes... More

We enjoy going to the games and getting there early. The tickets are getting pricey. If you're there early enough you can walk out of the tunnel to the playing field. About two hours before the game you can get close to the players as they walk from the Gug to the field. The band also plays around the campus... More

Loved being inside Notre Dame but they really need to update their facility!! no hand rails with way too many stairs to climb up. Benches are sooooo uncomfortable I was in pain the entire game!!! The older gentlemen at gates and ushers er so friendly!
