Athletic Facilities

Civera Fitness Center

Thanks to a generous gift from Ed and Judy Civera, the University expanded our Fitness Center on the second floor of the MBK Sports and Activities Complex into what was formerly the Gator Lair. We also acquired new exercise equipment including treadmills, ellipical machines, exercise bikes, spin bikes, and new weightlifting areas. The new fitness center is now over three times larger than it was before.


Open 7 Days a Week, 5:00 a.m. to Midnight


Fitness Center membership is free for all full-time Notre Dame students, faculty and staff members.

NDMU's LeClerc pool is located in the lower level of LeClerc Hall. Originally built in 1924, it is a registered historic landmark and has even been featured in Hollywood movies such as Clara’s Heart, featuring Whoopi Goldberg and a young Neil Patrick Harris.
