Outside the Universe, there is nothing. Not even quantum foam, or the fabric of empty space.
It isn't even "space" because there is no such thing as here or there outside the universe.
It's just nothing. An infinite nothing.

using the phrase "outside the universe" is rather misleading. there is no such thing as "outside the universe." it's not that there's nothing out there, it's that it simply doesn't exist.

how do you know there isn't a limit and its not gonna stop.. so that will make it so its NOT infinite

Scientists say that the universe will stop expanding when gravity becomes more powerful than whatever is causing the expansion, something they predict may never actually happen.

Another possibility is that the universe will keep expanding until all matter is infinitely dispersed.

...whatever is outside the Universe. Infinite, complete nothingness, presumably.

Assuming that the Universe is "stuff", the Universe is expanding into the "not stuff".

That's impossible! Because if the universe holds all that exists, and outside him there is nothing. I mean, there isn't anything. We cannot say there is nothing. The form ``is´´ is not aplicable.
Or maybe our concept of the universe is very limited.

Whats the 99% empty space that the matter bathes in so to speak, nothingness ,a void..

Acctually, the most talked off theory is that the universe is expanding in the light of speed, therefore it will be infinite to us until we are able to travell faster than 299,792,458 m/s.

False, the expansion of space is greater than the sped of light, look it up

Isn't the expansion what makes it infinite?

Well.. infinite as to how we cannot fathom the scale of it.   
   
Otherwise it is quite a finite space expanding to a point, thus lowering the amount of matter/unit of volume ratio. It is like a balloon that was given air to later deflate and return to nothingness.

actually, if the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate (which all evidence suggests it is), it may very well be infinite in size.

The ever expanding part is what makes it infinite.

Doesn't it need to keep expanding to be infinite?

No. It needs to be infinite to be infinite. If it kept growing, that would mean it's not infinite yet.

What makes it infinite is canter's diagonal, its a theory that suggests that as soon as an infinite set it complete there is another number right after the last. For example, in an infinite set of 1's and 0's as soon as the set is finished, another 1 or 0 comes in to complete it, making it a complete set again, meaning another number (be it a 1 or 0) has to be added to the set, and so its ever expanding. the universe follows an infinite pattern like this, and so the reason it has to keep expanding is to keep itself at an infinite set.

You can't have sets of infinite in a 3 dimensional universe.....
Look up infinite

Imagine this   
the big bang that created our universe   
Let's imagine there was nothing before the big bang   
so how could it have happened   
What if like   
a huuuuuuuge "big bang" happened on the other side of some parallel universal wall, and the blast broke through to our side and created our universe   
   
I'm not saying this is true/false   
but interesting thought   
inb4 78 people prove me wrong

one theory is the big crunch, saying that when the universe ends, it all gathers at one spot, and then explodes into a new big bang.

the big crunch is just the event that would occur if the gravitational force overpowered the expansion force.

what you're referring to is a cyclic model of the universe.

by the way, that is incredibly unlikely, as all evidence seems to point towards an accelerating expansion, which means instead of a big crunch, we'll have a big rip (where space-time literally tears)
