LaFortune Student Center

Opened in 1883, this was Notre Dame’s Science Hall, but it became the LaFortune Student Center in 1953, named for the benefactor who funded its conversion.

One of the most trafficked buildings on campus with over 2 million visitors annually, the center has a variety of social, meeting and dining spaces for the campus community and guests. You’ll find a food court, convenience store, ATMs, a barber shop and hair stylist, a credit union branch, computer work stations, and offices for student government and other groups. The Ballroom hosts more than 150 events per year, including residence hall dances, talent shows, concerts, banquets and lectures. LaFortune is open 24 hours while classes are in session.
