Arrival Time and Late Seating
Out of courtesy for all patrons, we highly suggest arriving early to events in order to avoid being seated late. The doors of the main lobby of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center are generally open at least one hour before the event and individual venues generally open 30 minutes prior to the start of a performance.
To be seated per your ticket, you must arrive on time. Once a venue closes for a performance to begin, no latecomers will be admitted until an appropriate break occurs, as designated by the artist/performer. Late seating entry varies with each performance and may be significant—or even impossible. If you are seated late, you will be directed to an easily accessible seat in the rear of the venue until intermission. At intermission, you will be allowed to move to your original, ticketed seat.
We encourage you to allow extra time for arrival, parking and walking during inclement weather and some University of Notre Dame varsity sporting events, especially on home football game Fridays and Saturdays. Please see www.und.com
for all Notre Dame sport season schedules.
An ATM is located in the in the main lobby, across from the elevators.
Cameras, Cell Phones and Pagers
We love technology at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center, but not during a performance or film. Cameras and recording equipment are not permitted in any of the center’s venues during a performance or film. All cell phones, pagers and other electronic devices must be turned off before the start of the performance or film.
This includes use of smartphones or similar: iPhones, Android phones, Blackberries, iPod Touches, iPads, etc;.
As a courtesy to others and the performers, please do not open cell phones or engage in text messaging during a performance.
