DeBartolo Hall

DeBartolo Hall at the Univ of Notre Dame

Since construction in 1992, Edward J. DeBartolo Hall has become a symbol of Notre Dame's commitment to the integration of education with technology in academia. The DeBartolo Classroom Building  was the first of two facilities gifted in honor of the DeBartolo family, by Mr. Edward J. DeBartolo Sr.  In 2004, the DeBartolo Performaing Arts Center opened and was named in honor of Mr. DeBartolo's wife, Marie. 

DeBartolo Hall is comprised of 73 classrooms representing two-thirds of the total number of classrooms available on campus. The multi-million dollar Facility is managed under the direction of Building Services, with the mission of striving to stay current with an  up-to-date environment and technology that enhances the quality of the learning and teaching experience at Notre Dame. For assistance with operational or informational issues, the Building Manager's office is located in room 104, (631-8773). The Building Support Assistant is located in room 103, (631-0175). During the academic year, DeBartolo Hall employs on the average of 11–13 students that supplement coverage for evening and weekend events. During established operational hours, classroom support  is available.

The Registrar's Office has priority for scheduling all rooms in DeBartolo Hall. Events requests are reviewed once class needs are met. Specific guidelines and answers to room use questions may be found at
