As part of the University of Notre Dame’s ongoing commitment to safety and security, walk-through metal detectors will be used at all gates of Notre Dame Stadium for the 2019 football season, beginning on Sept. 14 with the first home game.

Metal detectors will also be used at all men’s and women’s basketball contests in Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center and hockey games at Compton Family Ice Arena. This policy may be in effect for other events in those locations or other campus venues on a case-by-case basis.

Guests entering with bags should refresh their memory on the clear bag policy adopted by the University last year. After having bags checked, guests will pass through the metal detectors and then have tickets scanned for entry to the venue. Entrants will not be required to remove belts, cell phones, coins, jackets, jewelry, watches, wallets, shoes or other small objects.
