Travel & Accommodations

Commencement events are held on campus and are near visitor parking lots. Weather in late spring in Princeton can be variable; dress comfortably. On Sunday, most University parking lots are available for guest parking. On Monday and Tuesday, regular work days for the University, the West Parking Garage, is available for guest parking. More information and maps will be posted in the spring.

The online University travel portal lists area hotels and contact numbers and can be found at


If you or another member of your family needs accommodation for a disability, please contact the Office of Disability Services, 609-258-8840 as soon as possible and no later than May 1 with information about your particular needs.  The office's website is at

Special seating areas for individuals with disabilities or special needs are available at Baccalaureate, Class Day and Commencement. Seating space in these areas is limited (we try to identify places near walkways and shade).  To accommodate all with special needs, seating in that area must be limited to the individual with special needs and one additional guest.  While there are no special tickets for the seating area set aside for individuals with disabilities, regular entrance tickets are necessary.
