ABOUT MONOGRAM HOUSING:
Growing up in South Bend, one can imagine our weekends often revolved around Notre Dame. In the fall, the Stadium and Joyce lots, with their endless tailgate parties, were our stomping grounds. Year round, whether it was Irish soccer, football, basketball or hockey games, summer sports camps, or even our high school proms and graduation, the campus of the University of Notre Dame was "home."
Going on to become a student-athlete and graduate of Notre Dame was a dream come true. And being part of both the university and local communities was an especially unique experience. As I moved around the country for my career and life went on, like many other Indiana natives and Notre Dame alumni, I still found myself making the journey home multiple times a year.
In 2012, we bought a little bungalow just south of campus. It was intended to be our quaint escape from the hustle and bustle of life in Chicago; a place to enjoy Irish football weekends like we always had; a way to keep us forever connected to home. However, we soon realized that this place, combined with our family's love and pride for sharing the Notre Dame experience, had created its own energy. From the very first football season, we had friends and classmates calling to rent the house for game weekends. We had more requests and more friends wanting to stay with us than we could accommodate. Suddenly, our hometown hideaway had turned into a time share and a business was born!
Since then, we have partnered with fellow former Notre Dame athletes and South Bend natives to duplicate that homegrown, perfected formula we enjoy when coming home to Notre Dame. We now offer 7 (and growing) fully furnished houses to choose from, for rent any day of the year. Location and quality property are the priority - the 'Monogram Housing neighborhood' is always walking distance to campus. From a weekend visit to a few months stay, we welcome your families and groups. We provide the gold standard in South Bend hospitality!
