Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU) is a private institution established in 1851, making it the first college in California authorized to grant baccalaureate degrees to women. Located in Belmont, a suburban setting on the San Francisco Peninsula, NDNU boasts a diverse campus noted for its Ralston Hall Mansion, an exemplar of Italianate Villa architecture. While historically rooted in its Catholic identity, the university maintains a contemporary academic profile that includes undergraduate, graduate, and credential programs. Some of the popular majors at NDNU reflect its strengths in the arts and sciences, business, and education. With a holistic admissions process, NDNU is relatively selective, seeking students who show a blend of academic achievement and personal accomplishment. On-campus living is available, offering residence halls that complement its academic environment. NDNU does not emphasize athletics as a core part of its identity; therefore, specific sports programs and team names are not highlighted as distinguishing features of the university experience.

  54 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 147 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $36,306 plus fees of $290.
