A post office has been in operation at Notre Dame since 1851. The United States Postal Service Notre Dame Post Office is located in the southwest corner of Hammes Mowbray Hall, west of East Gate along Juniper Road on the University of Notre Dame campus.


Notre Dame is in the South Bend Community School Corporation (SBCSC).

The school corporation serves Village Apartments, the designated University of Notre Dame housing unit for students with dependent children and a part of the University Village complex. Village Apartments is assigned to schools based on its University Village Drive location: Darden Primary, Tarkington Traditional Elementary, Clay Intermediate, and Clay High School. At the end of the 2017-2018 school year Fischer Graduate Residence will become the designated housing for students with dependent children, as University Village will close at the end of that school year.
