Notre Dame approves $400 million stadium renovation project
Notre Dame's 'Campus Crossroads' project will turn Notre Dame Stadium into a campus hub with three new buildings and some 4,000 new seats.
Notre Dame has officially announced a $400 million renovation project to Notre Dame Stadium it's calling "the largest building project in its 172-year history."
Called the "Campus Crossroads Project," the renovation will add three new buildings to the east, west and south sides of the stadium, as well as adding between 3,000 and 4,000 "premium seats" to the stadium's seating capacity. The project aims to "make the stadium a year-round hub for academic and student life."
“The integrated nature of this project will maintain the compact walkability of campus, facilitate deeper connection and collaboration across the various units of the University, and offer an exciting addition to what we believe is the best on-campus student learning experience in the country,” Notre Dame president Rev. John I. Jenkins said in an open letter to the campus Wednesday.
Construction will begin in the next two years and is scheduled to take 33 months to complete. The new buildings will offer classrooms, a dining hall, recereational sports facilities, event spaces, and more.
The stadium will receive new club seating along the rim of the stadium on both the east and west sides of the stadium. The renovation will also include a new press box and improved scoreboards, though "the extent [to which] the University provides video" inside the stadium is still to be determined.
