The Eck Visitors’ Center, adjacent to the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore, stands close to the Notre Dame Avenue entrance to campus. Both buildings opened in 1998 to serve as a first stop for visitors. The Eck Center houses a 150-seat auditorium and presents an introductory video about Notre Dame.
A wealth of other information is also offered, and the center is the launching point for regularly scheduled campus tours. It is also the headquarters for the Notre Dame Alumni Association.
