Notre Dame Research provides support for the building management of a number of research buildings across campus. All research buildings are overseen with the health and safety of Notre Dame’s researchers in mind.
Built in 1969 as a men's residence, Flanner Hall was converted to academic offices in the 1990s. Today, Flanner is partially occupied by various research units, such as the Environmental Change Initiative, Institute for Advanced Study, the Center for Research Computing and the Engineering and Design Core Facility.

Opened in 1983, Freimann Life Science Center is comprised of two state-of-the-art animal facilities equipped to house a wide variety of vertebrates.
Home of the Mike and Josie Harper Cancer Research Institute, Harper Hall was opened in 2011. The building serves as a novel collaboration between the University of Notre Dame and the Indiana University School of Medicine South Bend. To learn more about Harper Hall, watch this video.
Opened in 2016, McCourtney Hall is dedicated to research in the molecular sciences and engineering. Researchers from the Colleges of Engineering and Science have joined forces in the state-of-the-art building to tackle three key programmatic areas: analytical sciences and engineering, chemical and biomolecular engineering, and drug discovery.
In addition to housing medical education programs for the IU School of Medicine South Bend, the second floor of Raclin-Carmichael Hall is home to the W. M. Keck Center for Transgene Research. Opened in 2005, the Hall also features research space with modern gross-anatomy laboratories.
