Located in the heart of downtown San Jose, Notre Dame offers students “City as a Classroom” learning opportunities to complement traditional learning. An array of art galleries, museums, theatres, businesses and government agencies are within steps of the campus.

Students avail themselves of distinctive opportunities including internships, volunteerism, field trips and other real-world learning experiences made possible by Notre Dame’s unique location in this jewel of a city.

Students love the food, conventions, the food, Christmas in The Park, the food, the art galleries, the food, and the confidence they acquire by being part of a something larger than just their campus -- being part of a city.


“I think Notre Dame being downtown gives students a great opportunity to explore the area
and themselves. It makes you feel very independent." ~ Graduating Senior

“There are so many great places to eat.”

“Everything is walkable from food to field trips to the San Jose Museum of Art.”

“We have food, we have art and we have fun here.”

“Students here are immersed in the downtown culture and are more worldly and knowledgeable as a result.”
