LaFortune Student Center
University of Notre Dame


LaFortune is being re-envisioned to support contemporary student use through reconfigured interior spaces while honoring its important legacy by leaving its iconic exterior unchanged. Vertical openings are sensitively employed to create stronger visual connections to student involvement areas. An outdated food court will be replaced with micro-restaurants that create destination dining experiences. As stewardship of this building is a high priority, the project will replace aging mechanical, electrical, and technology systems, allowing the LaFortune Student Center to serve the campus community well into the future.
