The Campus Crossroads Project is the largest building initiative in the history of the University of Notre Dame. The entire project includes sustainability practices consistent with other University projects, such as LEED certification, green roofs, and geothermal energy use. The $400 million project includes construction of more than 750,000 square feet of classroom, research, student facility, digital media, performance, meeting, event, and hospitality space.
Notre Dame is recognized around the world for its first class academics, athletics, and campus architecture. The campus buildings are notable for their collegiate gothic style.
The scope of the project includes three new buildings in addition to numerous renovations of the existing stadium envelope and interior.
