Building Amenities

Dedicated to the memory of Notre Dame’s legendary football coach, Knute Rockne, the Rockne Memorial is one of the most complete recreational facilities on campus. Built in 1939 from the donations of alumni and friends of the University, the Memorial provides complete athletic recreational facilities for the students, faculty, staff, retirees and their families. Amenities include the lower level exercise room and Father Lange weight room, 25-yard swimming pool and warm up pool fit with observation decks, racquetball and squash courts, indoor cycling studio, climbing wall, personal traiing studio and locker rooms for men, women and families. The upper level features three gymnasiums, the largest containing two basketball courts. Finally, the main lobby of the Memorial contains the athletic trophies and mementos accumulated by Notre Dame teams under Rockne and his successors, as well as a bronze bust of Rockne himself to greet patrons and campus visitors. Game Day tradition includes pilgrimage to Knute's statue before kickoff to rub his nose for good luck.

The Rockne Memorial is the prominant semi-Gothic building that stands on the west side of campus on South Quad, covering nearly an acre of ground and providing many opportunities for recreational enjoyment. Even with the inception of Rolfs Sports Recreation Center in 1998, Rockne is still a bustling stage for many forms of club sports, intramurals, fitness classes, aquatic instruction, and general recreation, as well as physical education and life-saving classes.
