We are the Center for Arts + Entertainment on Campus

Destination DPAC

See a show. Watch a film. Experience the arts. The DeBartolo Performing Arts Center brings world-class artists, filmmakers, and performances to campus and is host to hundreds of University and academic events each year. We are the center for performing arts at Notre Dame.

Presenting Series shows are only $10. Notre Dame students can see internationally renowned artists like Leslie Odom, Jr., Paul Taylor Dance Company, and Boston Pops for only $10!

Browning Cinema tickets are $4 or less! Free films are sponsored by the Meg and John P. Brogan Endowment for Classic Cinema. Several films also allow free admission for Holy Cross and Saint Mary’s students with student ID.

The McDonald Center for Student Well-Being also offers McWell Tix for select films! Look at the cinema event listing page to see which films offer McWell Tix then reserve your seats by phone or in-person at the Ticket Office. Limited quantities are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

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. We’re open every weekday for classes, rehearsal, behind-the-scenes stuff, tours, and more.

Presenting Series student ticket support made possible by the Lee and Susan Manfred Family Endowment for Excellence.

Be a Part of the Arts

Be inspired by students who have had successful study or work and entertainment experiences. For more than a decade students have found a home-away-from-home at DPAC.

WORK at DPAC! Check out the openings on the Student JOBboard. Student hiring occurs at the beginning of each academic year. Available positions will be posted on the Job Board mid-summer and interviews will be held once students return for the fall. You must be a currently enrolled student at Notre Dame to apply.

JOIN our student advisory committee. Students in the advisory committee collaborate with staff to promote events at DPAC on campus. The committee also plans and hosts academic and social events at the Center specifically for students. For more information contact Sean Martin.

ORGANIZE a group event and receive discounted pricing. Ask your rector, RA, or hall council. Look for events with pre- or post-talks and receptions.
