SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The University of Notre Dame plans to move ahead with a $400 million project to add up to 4,000 premium seats to its football stadium and buildings on three sides.

The buildings will house a student center on the west side, the anthropology and psychology departments and a digital media center on the east side, and music and sacred music departments on the south side. The Rev. John Jenkins, the university’s president, calls it “the most ambitious building project in the 172-year history of Notre Dame.”

Jenkins says the buildings are needed as the university broadens its research activity.

He says no decision has been made on whether to include video boards for instant replay or switch to an artificial playing surface, which are both contentious issues among fans.
