As always, Notre Dame’s highest priority is the health, well-being, and safety of the entire community. On March 27, 2020, the University of Notre Dame suspended laboratory research operations and limited campus access only to essential personnel necessary to safely maintain labs in a state of hibernation.

On May 18, 2020, the University announced plans for the phased reopening of research laboratories, creative arts studios, and core facilities on campus. Given access may still be limited, please contact specific facilities to verify services offered at this time.
