Stepan Center is Notre Dame's most versatile multi-purpose facility. The 21,000 square foot venue is located on the northeast corner of campus, north of Flanner and Grace Halls on Stepan Drive.
Built in 1962, the facility was constructed as one of the first geodesic domed facilities in the nation -- to date, it remains one of the most unique structures in the world.
While you will not find very many geodesic domed facilities these days, you will also rarely find a facility with such flexibility as hosting events like: major concerts, ethnic festivals, sporting events, sports club winter training, service club recreation area, ROTC training, and Mass. Stepan Center also serves as Notre Dame's largest available venue for academic exams.
Stepan Center is available free of charge to recognized student groups. Reservation requests are made through SAOnline.
Campus departments may also reserve Stepan Center via our online request form. Inquiries regarding departmental reservations should be directed to Amy Belke in the Student Activities Office by calling 631-6912.
