Comprised of representatives from every residence hall and the leaders of other Student Union Organizations, the Student Senate of Notre Dame discusses many important issues that pertain to the Student Body as a whole. Through the passage of resolutions and constitutional amendments, the Senate provides a voice to students through this group of leaders in important University matters.

Senate meetings take place on Wednesdays at 5:30 PM in the Notre Dame Room in LaFortune during the academic year. Meetings are open to the public so long as proper physical distancing can take place.

The Student Union operates under the regulations set forth in the Constitution of the Undergraduate Student Body of the University of Notre Dame du Lac. This document outlines the structure and duties of each organization, as well as the way in which funds are to be allocated and used. The Student Union is a complex organization that strives to meet the needs of the Student Body through effective and devoted leadership, but this would not be possible without the guidance of the document. Our Constitution is student written and is amended to meet the changing needs of the Student Body.
