In a thriving metropolis rich in history, culture, commerce, and political influence, sits Notre Dame’s home in Asia, the Beijing Global Gateway.

The Beijing Global Gateway serves the University of Notre Dame’s faculty, students, and broader community of alumni, parents, and partners by facilitating programs and convening events which promote understanding, advance knowledge and cooperation, and address issues to serve the common good within a local, regional, and global context.

Because of the Gateway’s close proximity to the Central Business District (CBD), foreign embassies, government offices, international organizations, and multinational firms, opportunities are plentiful for those who visit the Beijing Global Gateway.

This Gateway is also keen to bring Beijing, and greater China, back to Notre Dame. Each year, a number of qualified undergraduates, high school students, scholars, administrators, and delegations travel from China to South Bend to explore and enrich campus. This true exchange of people, ideas, cultures, and goals ensures Notre Dame and China have a long history ahead.
