Reviews Dorm Life

  • Dorm Life at Notre Dame is a unique experience. All undergraduate dorms are single-sex. That can make it a bit tough at first to find friends of the opposite gender,…

  • This is probably one of my favorite parts. This campus doesn't have sororities or fraternities because that's what our dorms become for us. It's like Hogwarts where your house is…

    I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that the south dining hall is a four-star restaurant.

    The Dining room is huge. The food is amazing and everything is cooked to perfection. Almost like a buffet, but not completely.

    We have one of the best dining halls in the country, and if you're creative, it's hard to get sick and tired of the food.

    The dining halls serve delicious, home-cooked food. Food of all types is served, and gluten free and vegan options are always present. The salad bars are always freshly stocked and the food is always hot. The lines are generally short, and even on big game weekends the workers keep everything running smoothly and efficiently.

    ND's food has been rated as some of the best in the nation repeatedly in recent years, and it deserves its rating. There are so many options, and a lot of quality breakfast, lunch, and dinner foods, both prepared and untouched for use by the students. There are all different kinds of cuisines offered each day, and several others are on rotation throughout the month (i.e. Indian, Mediterranean, fajita night). The meal plan includes 14 meals a week and $350 in flex points each semester. Flex points can be used at the convenience store on campus, at all the different cafes and on-campus restaurants (including starbucks), and at the 24-hour university-owned pizza place. It's great.

    Notre Dame offers a variety of spots to pig out as well. The North and South Dining Hall's both serve great food (though everyone has an opinion on whether North or South has the better food) along with a common place for fast food called the Huddle. If you are looking for a restaurant then Legends of Notre Dame is also readily available on campus. Plenty of options.

    Greek Life does not exist at ND, but the dorms are such tight knit communities, it almost feels like it does sometimes.

    Notre Dame doesn't have Greek Life, but you don't really need it. The dorms can be your Greek Life if you want them to be, or you don't need a Greek Life at all.
