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.

Presenting Series shows are only $10. Notre Dame students can see internationally renowned artists for only $10!

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

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 center is only 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.

Be a part of the Arts at Notre Dame

Find your home-away-from-home at DPAC. There are several ways you can get involved with the arts on a deeper level.

Work at DPAC

Check out the current 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.
