Travel

How to get here?

 


Princeton University is in the town of Princeton in central New Jersey, approximately half way between New York City (50 miles NE) and Philadelphia (45 miles SW). The closest and most convenient airport is Newark International Airport.

We recommend flying into Newark Airport rather than Philadelphia Airport. The preferred way to travel to and from Newark Airport is via NJ Transit to Princeton Junction (rail travel is not available for Philadelphia airport connections). Taxis are available at Princeton Junction, as is the NJ Transit Dinky train to Princeton campus.

If you are staying at the Nassau Inn, you will be within walking distance of the meeting and local restaurants. The Hyatt Place and the Courtyard Hotel (contact details below) are both short taxi rides from main campus and from Princeton Junction. More detailed travel information can be found at the university's Getting to Campus page. Information about local transportation (NJ-Transit rail, airport shuttle, etc) can be found at the university's Ground Transportation page.

Parking on Campus

Parking for the conference will be in Lot 21.  Please see map: http://www.princeton.edu/main/visiting/files/princeton_map.pdf

You can walk to Peyton Hall (about 10 minutes) or take the shuttle service. Shuttle service from Lot 21 (grid L8) runs about every 10 minutes.  Exit at Frist stop (grid H5).  Walk up Ivy Lane past Lewis Library to Peyton Hall (grid J6).  Despite the construction, you can still access Peyton Hall.

Note: Drivers heading north on Route 1 should exit onto Alexander Road toward Princeton.  Make a right at the third light (Sunoco gas station) onto Faculty Road.  Cross the light at Washington Road and follow signs to Lot 21.
