Where to Park

University events may occasionally restrict parking — attendants will direct you to the nearest available lot.

Location A

The gated Stayer Lot, north of the center, and Stadium Lot are free and open to the public weekdays after 5 p.m. and weekends.

Accessible parking is on the east side of the center. Parking at the center’s entrance is not permitted except in the 10-minute parking zone. You are welcome to drop off passengers before proceeding to a parking lot.

Location B

The Visitor Lot is located on the west end of the Walsh Architecture parking lot. No permit is required outside of regular business hours and on holidays.

During regular business hours (Monday–Friday, 7 a.m. – 4 p.m.), visitors must purchase a permit at the pay station (credit cards only) near the entrance to the lot. The permit must be displayed face-up on the driver’s side of the vehicle’s dashboard, so it is visible to parking enforcement staff.

Location C

Parking Validation. Bring us your event and parking ticket from the Eddy Street Commons Garage to park for free during DeBartolo Performing Arts Center events.

Free parking is available after 5 p.m. on weekdays and all weekends just south of O’Neill Hall in the stadium lot. All other times, visitor parking is available south of the stadium lot with the exception of football game days when the stadium lot is closed.

Accessible Parking

Designated parking spaces for vehicles with valid state disability parking permits are available adjacent to the center. Parking spaces are available on a first-come basis. There are also accessible spaces in lots just north of the center.

Wheelchair Accessible Entrances

The main entrances of the center are equipped with power doors. Each of our venues has accessible entrances. The usher staff will assist in directing you to the accessible entrance closest to your seats.


Located on the south side of the University of Notre Dame campus and directly north of Eddy Street Commons, the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center is easy to find. Officially, we are the Marie P. DeBartolo Center for the Performing Arts. Students commonly refer to us as DPAC which is not to be confused with DeBart (DeBartolo Hall).

DeBartolo Hall is comprised of 73 classrooms representing two-thirds of the total number of classrooms available on campus. It is located on Moose Krause Circle just west of the Notre Dame stadium.

Both facilities are gifts of the Edward J. DeBartolo family.
