Notre Dame Stadium Complex LOAD-IN POLICY

The Facility Operations team will determine the location for all deliveries, load-in/load-out at the Complex, which may be one of the following:

Duncan Student Center Loading Dock, Stadium Gate A, Stadium gate E, Door 1 (to access Corbett Family Hall) or door 6 (to access O’ Neill Hall of Music).

These access points are utilized by many different departments; therefore, it is highly recommended that space be booked with the facilities team in advance (72 hours prior is ideal) of your event. This will help to ensure that there will be adequate space to unload and security staff scheduled to accommodate your delivery. Non-scheduled vehicles or vehicles that arrive at non-scheduled times may not be admitted promptly and run the risk of limited access. All requests should be submitted via email to

After unloading all delivery vehicles should be moved to an appropriate parking location. No vehicle should remain parked at any of the Stadium Complex unloading zones. All vehicles unloading in these locations should have acquired a ‘Sidewalk Access Permit’ from the Notre Dame Parking Office. Once unloaded, vehicles left unattended in these areas are in violation of the University’s Pedestrian Safety Policy and may be ticketed or towed.

It is recommended that all support staff for your event plan on parking in one of the lots surrounding the stadium. There is a ‘pay-to-park’ visitor lot southeast of Legends Restaurant (adjacent to the School of Architecture) and ‘pay-to-park’ options in both the Joyce and Compton lots as well. Please visit and select the Visitor Parking overlay to view these areas on a map.
