University of Notre Dame's Golden Dome & Basilica
University of Notre Dame
Home of the Fighting Irish, the largest area employer and by far the most notable landmark in Michiana is the University of Notre Dame. With 1,250 acres containing two lakes and 138 buildings with a property valued at over $2.8 billion, Notre Dame is well known for the beauty of its campus. Over 500 varieties of trees grace the grounds, and the stately architecture with ivy covered walls and hidden courtyards all add to the rich heritage.

The Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the 14 story Hesburgh Library with its 132 feet high mural depicting Christ the Teacher, and the University's beautifully renovated 128 year old Main Building with its famed Golden Dome are among the most widely known university landmarks in the world.

Notre Dame football weekends, ND Junior Parent Weekend, and Commencement are all times when rooms are at a premium. Book your Murphy Guest House rooms in advance and be only 30 minutes from the campus via the 80/90 Indiana Toll Road.
