SOUTH BEND -

The University of Notre Dame will Monday celebrate the opening of the new Duncan Student Center. The nine-story facility, which is part of the $400 million Campus Crossroads project at Notre Dame Stadium, includes student dining options, recreational sports facilities and a 500-seat student ballroom. 

The university says the facility "will exist as a new space for students to create, perform, gather, connect, exercise and unwind." The second floor will feature the Thomas and Therese Grojean Family Loft which will house, among other amenities, the school's student media operations.

The third and fourth floors will house the 800,000-square-foot Smith Center for Recreational Sports. The center in September was named after Notre Dame alumnus Tripp Smith and his wife, Sheila, who made a $15 million gift to the university.

"The Duncan Student Center is the physical embodiment of the integration we hope our students will explore as they pursue their interests, cultivate their well-being and discern their futures," said Erin Hoffmann Harding, vice president for student affairs at Notre Dame. "I cannot wait to see how our students will bring this facility to life and use its spaces to further enrich and enliven our campus community."

The top two levels will have premium, club and box seating for Notre Dame Stadium. You can learn more about the amenities on each floor of the Duncan Student Center by clicking here.

The university will hold a daylong celebration of the facility with an official ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Monday.
