DeBartolo Hall


DeBartolo Hall fall picture trees with leaves turning red

Since construction in 1992, Edward J. DeBartolo Hall has become a symbol of Notre Dame's commitment to the integration of education and technology in academia. DeBartolo Hall is comprised of seventy-four classrooms representing two-thirds of the total number of classrooms available on campus.

The facility is managed by the Auxiliary and Facility Operations Department, within Business Operations. The 24-million dollar facility strives to stay current with up-to-date technology that enhances the quality of the learning and teaching at Notre Dame. For assistance with operational or informational issues, the Building Manager's office is located in room 104, (631-8773). The Building Support Assistant is located in room 103, (631-0175). During the academic year, DeBartolo Hall employs on the average of 11-13 students that supplement coverage for evening and weekend events.

A fiber optic delivery system as well as Nomad wireless technology, in conjunction with the Office of Information Technologies, provides a full range of media service and support to the building.  NOMAD Wireless Availability - Office of Information Technologies - University of Notre Dame

Wise Use of Resources

The off-hour scheduling of a single classroom in the entire building is discouraged because of the extensive energy requirements, particularly

during summer and winter weekends.


Class Room Comforts-Temperature Control

We ask that windows remain closed in the classrooms. Each room is equipped with an independent thermostat control. All rooms of 100 seats or smaller have one thermostat. The 250-seat rooms have two, and the 450-seat have three. If a problem with room temperature arises, the Building Manager must be contacted: 631-8773. Events on the weekends outside normal operational hours must be coordinated in advance with the Building Manager, due to the heating and cooling systems entering energy conservation mode.


The auditorium (Room 101) and the three 250-seat lecture halls (Rooms 102, 141, and 155) have nine preset lighting controls. If another preset is required, it must be coordinated in advance with the Building Manager, 631-8773.

Television spotlighting for the above listed areas is available upon request.

If Rooms 102, 141, and 155 are entered from the first floor, the red light switch is located at the far left and right of the doors. Depress the top indicator glow light for "on" and the button directly below for "off".

Room 101 is equipped with halogen lights that are available during tests and examinations. It is recommended that requests be made in advance due to the fact that it takes ninety seconds for the lights to become activated.

All 50- and 100-seat rooms have both fluorescent and incandescent lights. Incandescent light intensity can be adjusted by using the slider switch located in front of the room along side of the fluorescent and chalkboard light switches.

Food Policy

All catering arrangements, including water provided for guest speakers can be made by contacting Food Services: http://food.nd.edu/

Any requests for serving of light refreshments along with events must be coordinated in advance of the event with the Building Manager or Building Support Assistant. The Building Manager reserves the right to cancel any services to rooms where these guidelines are violated.   Fines may be assessed if clean-up agreements are not honored.

Food items must be provided through University Food Services. No Exceptions. Single unit servings are highly recommended to avoid potential of contamination. Light refreshments are limited to being served on the first floor or Atrium Stairwell.

Tables can be ordered, delivered and picked up by submitting a Facilities Requisition or by contacting General Services at 631-8327.

Corporate Responsibility is highly encouraged in cleaning up or serving of refreshments and restoring the room(s) to serviceable use for incoming guests.

Lost & Found

If you misplace an item during your visit, check with the Building Manager or Support Staff Room 103 /104 before leaving. If your item has not been found, please log-in on the Lost & Found journal. We will contact you if we find your item. Be sure to contact us with Lost & Found information as soon as you notice the misplaced item. In the event that your item has not been turned in to Lost and Found, please follow-up with Notre Dame Security @ 631-5555. For accountability purposes, we ask that you sign for any item that you claim.
