Traveling to Campus

Arrival by Air

South Bend Regional Airport (SBN) is approximately 15 minutes by car from the Notre Dame campus. From the airport, go east on Lincoln Way West (turn left out of the airport) toward downtown South Bend. Turn left on Indiana 933 (Michigan Street) and proceed about two miles north to Angela Boulevard. Turn right onto Angela Boulevard, and then turn left at the first stoplight onto Notre Dame Avenue.

Visitors may find that flying to Chicago and driving to Notre Dame may be more convenient. The University is about two hours by car from O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and about 90 minutes from Midway International Airport (MDW).

From the Illinois border, it is 77 miles to the South Bend/Notre Dame exit on I-80 (exit 77). Turn right onto Indiana 933 South/US-31. Make a left at the fourth stop light (Angela Boulevard), then turn left at the first stoplight (Notre Dame Avenue).

The South Shore Line runs directly from the Chicago Loop (corner of Michigan Avenue and

Randolph Street) to the South Bend Regional Airport (about a two hour trip). From the airport, the Notre Dame campus is approximately a 15 minute ride by car. Various transportation methods are available (e.g., taxi, rental car, limo).
