It is the policy of The Trustees of Princeton University to require legal service of a properly issued subpoena from any person or government office seeking information from Princeton University. In this regard, all subpoenas relating to the University should be served at The Office of the General Counsel on 120 Alexander Street, Second Floor, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, either by a person at least eighteen years of age, a professional process server, or the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office in compliance with the New Jersey Rules of Court.
University employees cannot accept service of legal documents on behalf of the University. If the documents to be served name a University employee personally in his or her official capacity, they should still be served at OGC. OGC will review the documents, determine what steps are necessary and discuss an individual’s involvement, if any, with him or her. If you are serving a subpoena or other legal document addressed to a University employee concerning a non-University matter, we ask that you first contact OGC. An attorney will assess the circumstances and work to facilitate on-campus service, if such service proves necessary.
