Game day tidbits

  • Douglas Road north of campus will be open to two-way traffic on game day, but may be limited at times after the game to expedite outbound traffic from the lots.
  • Notre Dame is implementing a new stadium bag policy, which forbids backpacks, duffel bags and tote bags from entering the stadium. All other small bags, blankets, coats and ponchos are allowed but are subject to inspection.
  • If you plan to tailgate, remember that charcoal grills and kegs are prohibited on university property.
