The London Global Gateway positions itself as a welcoming, impressive, and open-minded venue, where discussion is encouraged. The Gateway welcomes groups from Notre Dame, other organizations, and the local community for events, conferences, lectures, and meetings.
Please review our facilities below and consider if they may meet your anticipated event needs, particularly in regards to room capacity and services offered. Please note, we cannot accommodate seated dinners.
Due to a busy academic program, we cannot guarantee that there will be space available for your event. Any requests for hires for public events will be considered but must be approved as fitting with Notre Dame’s objectives.
Proposals must be submitted at least 8 weeks before the anticipated event day to allow us enough time to plan, market, and prepare for your event. Any shorter and we might not be able to guarantee our usual level of service.
We encourage Arts and Letters faculty and staff to contact the Academic Conferences team on the Notre Dame campus for larger events.
