College football • The University of Notre Dame’s iconic football stadium will be flanked by three massive buildings under a $400 million project that will also create nearly 4,000 premium seats at the "House that Rockne Built."
The plans for the buildings were presented to the university’s board of trustees during their meeting Wednesday in Rome.
The Rev. John Jenkins, the university’s president, called it "the most ambitious building project in the 172-year history of Notre Dame," saying more space was needed to accommodate the university’s broadening research activity.
The new buildings will add about 750,000 square feet and will house a student center, the anthropology and psychology departments, and a digital media center and music and sacred music departments.
