  • Dorm Life at Notre Dame is a unique experience. All undergraduate dorms are single-sex. That can make it a bit tough at first to find friends of the opposite gender,…

  • Dorm life is pretty amazing for a lot of people. The dorms are all single-sex, which may sound strange, but actually works out quite well. The dorms become communities, almost…

  • Most dorms don't have air conditioning, which is a nightmare during the summer, but unnecessary for the rest of the year. Single-sex dorms become the absolute norm after only several…

    The buffet-style meals are great, and Flexpoints allow you to flexibly dine at a variety of restaurants anytime of the day.

    For college dining hall standards our's are excellent. North and South Dining hall are basically better quality versions of Golden Corral. We have numerous restaurants on or near campus including Taco Bell, Starbucks, Smashburger, ABP, Einstein Bagels, Chipotle, Five Guys, Chinese Restaurants, Pubs, Bars, etc.

    There is a large rivalry between South Dining Hall and North Dining Hall (South is better!) but the food is essentially the same and is of good quality. South Dining Hall looks like Hogwarts and North is currently being renovated.

    The two dining halls on campus have loyal followings. There are north dining hall people and south dining hall people.

    I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that the south dining hall is a four-star restaurant.

    The Dining room is huge. The food is amazing and everything is cooked to perfection. Almost like a buffet, but not completely.

    We have one of the best dining halls in the country, and if you're creative, it's hard to get sick and tired of the food.

    Im so happy that Notre Dame doesn't have greek life. Well alumni hall has greek letters but its just a joke. Dorm life replaces greek life though so again there's something for everyone.

    Greek Life does not exist at ND, but the dorms are such tight knit communities, it almost feels like it does sometimes.
