The landscape of Princeton's campus has always been a defining element of its identity and experience. All Facilities departments are involved in keeping Princeton beautiful, but the majority of the landscape work is undertaken by the Grounds and Building Maintenance and the Office of Design and Construction. All planning and design is overseen by the Office of the University Architect.
Gardens and Walkways
A visitor to Princeton's campus will find beautiful flowers, acres of green lawns, and an astonishing variety of trees. Although much of the open space is park-like in character, Gardens and Walkways are important punctuations in the campus landscape.
Washington Road Stream Restoration
Over many decades, increasing stormwater runoff has resulted in instability of the Washington Road Stream, causing erosion and other damage to the ecosystems in the immediate area. The goal of this project is to restore the Washington Road Stream to a stable condition through the application of natural channel design principles.
Over 700,000 visitors and community members navigate their way to and around our campus annually. The goal of the Wayfinding project was to help our visitors find their destinations either on foot, walking our extensive network of pathways and courtyards, or while driving, navigating Princeton roadways and University parking lots.
