Map and Directions

Shakespeare at Notre Dame works hard to ensure your theatre experience is exceptional from start to finish. We understand that experience begins from the moment you arrive on campus.


From the South

The center is at the corner of East Angela Boulevard and Notre Dame Avenue. Take U.S. 31 north, which becomes Indiana 933 just south of the city of South Bend. Stay on Indiana 933 through downtown South Bend to Angela Boulevard. Turn right at Angela, and then turn left at the first stoplight on to Notre Dame Avenue.

From the North

The center is located just south of the Indiana Toll Road (Interstate 80/90). Exit I-80/90 at Exit 77 and turn right on to Indiana 933. Make a left at Angela Boulevard. Turn left at the first stoplight on to Notre Dame Avenue.


During the academic year, a gated parking lot just north of the center is open and free on performance nights and daily after 5 p.m. Parking in these lots is restricted during special events; parking attendants will direct you to available parking.

An accessibility lot for the disabled is available immediately adjacent to the center. A valid hangtag or license plate is required.

A 10-minute parking zone is available on the north drive of the center for ticket pick up. Parking is not permitted in the paved brick area or curbside except in the 10-minute parking zone. During inclement weather you are welcome to drop off guests in this area and proceed to parking.

Non-campus parking is also available at Eddy Street Commons, directly south of the center.

Historic Washington Hall is located next to the Main Building (Dome) and adjacent to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. We’ve secured access to the two parking lots located closest to the performance venue.

To reach these lots, you must pass through one of two Gatehouses (shown on the map to the right): the North Gatehouse on the Northeast side of campus via Douglas Road or the South Gatehouse on the campus’s Southern edge via Angela Blvd. Guards at both Gatehouses will grant access to all Shakespeare guests. Once through the Gatehouse, proceed on Holy Cross Drive (shown as a red line on the map) to the lot marked A9 or A15. Each lot is only 250 yards from Washington Hall.

In addition, parking is commonly available in lots next to the Hesburgh Library.

As you walk to the theatre, keep your eye on the Golden Dome; Washington Hall is its neighbor to the east. The entrance to Washington Hall is on the south side of the building.
