We are the Center for Arts + Entertainment on Campus


See a show. Take a study break. Relax on the Terrace and Irish Green. We’re open every weekday for classes, rehearsal, behind-the-scenes stuff, tours, and more. Not only do the world-class artists, filmmakers, and performances the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center brings to campus provide entertainment for students, they are also a part of achieving important aspects of the University’s mission. In addition to the Presenting Series and Browning Cinema, the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center is host to hundreds of University and academic events every year.

The center is a short walk from the heart of campus and even closer to the Duncan Student Center. Don’t feel like walking? Jump on the Campus South Shuttle route.

ND students only pay $10 for Presenting Series shows. See internationally renowned artists like Todd Rundgren, Philip Glass, and Kristin Chenoweth for only $10! Pay only $6 for tickets with a student subscription package of three or more events.
