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 Hammes Mowbray Hall 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 the flexibility to host events such as: major concerts, ethnic festivals, sporting events, sports club winter training, service club recreation, and many more.  Stepan Center also serves as Notre Dame's largest venue for academic exams.

Recognized student groups may use Stepan Center free of charge. Reservation requests are made through SAO360.

Departmental requests and general questions about the space may be directed to Student Activities Assistant Director and Facility Manager, Kathleen Van Vleet at
