In 1750, Governor Jonathan Belcher’s gift of 474 books to the College of New Jersey (as Princeton was known from 1746 to 1896) instantly made its library the sixth largest in the Colonies. Ever since, the library has remained in the vanguard of higher education and focused on its primary mission: to further the advancement of learning at Princeton.
The library, a large central building complemented by 10 branch libraries, is widely regarded as one of the premier research institutions in the world. With more than 8 million printed works, 5 million manuscripts and 2 million nonprint items — from Egyptian papyri and historical photographs to e-books, geospatial data and high-resolution digital images of unique library collections — the library meets the diverse research and teaching needs of Princeton’s academic community.
The collections are dynamic, growing at the rate of about 13,000 volumes per month, and the library maintains more than 50,000 journal subscriptions. Several thousand seats are located throughout the main building’s six floors, including study spaces in seminar rooms and subject collections.

The museum's collections are particularly strong in Chinese painting and calligraphy, art of the ancient Americas and pictorial photography.
Committed to advancing Princeton's teaching and research missions, the art museum serves as a cultural resource for the entire University community and the greater Princeton area as well as a gateway to the University for visitors from around the world.
Through dynamic, changing presentations of the museum's collections, a dozen temporary exhibitions each year that combine fresh scholarship with wide accessibility, and a sustained program of academic publishing, the museum seeks to be an essential part of the experience of every Princeton student. Each year hundreds of students visit the museum as part of their studies in dozens of disciplines.

Princeton provides three options for paying the University bill: (1) the Semester Payment Plan, (2) the Monthly Payment Plan and (3) the Parent Loan Program.
Billing notifications are sent electronically to students at their princeton.edu email address. There is a one-time enrollment requirement online. Students must enroll first and during enrollment can authorize others, such as parents/guardians, to enroll and receive an e-billing notification. Students are asked to visit the site to enroll and invite other parties. Prompt enrollment will ensure the timely distribution of the term bill and will help avoid late fees and other penalties associated with non-payment of the University bill. More information is available on the Office of Student Accounts website.
A student who has an outstanding debt to the University may be subject to one or more of the following: (a) prohibited from course selection and/or course changes (b) placed on a leave of absence until all financial obligations are met (c) prohibited from enrolling or being readmitted to the University, (d) refused a transcript, (e) denied a diploma document at graduation.
Changes in academic programs or variations in the school calendar do not entitle students to any credits against established fees.
Refund Policies. The policies for refunding tuition, as well as room, board and other fees, is outlined in the "Payment of Fees and Charges" section of the Undergraduate Announcement.
Princeton Parent Loan Program (PPL). The Princeton Parent Loan Program (PPL) allows families to borrow funds to pay their share of Princeton’s costs. With the intention of creating a loan program that is truly beneficial to parents, the University has arranged interest rates that have been favorable in the past and established a convenient loan application process.
To be eligible, you must be a parent of a Princeton undergraduate student, be creditworthy and have an income of less than $500,000 per year. Parents with higher incomes may be eligible in certain circumstances, such as having more than one child in college, large medical expenses or a decrease in income.
Princeton meets the full financial need of all enrolled students who qualify for assistance. Financial aid is awarded annually; families who believe they may need assistance are welcome to apply to the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office in any year of enrollment.
Princeton asks parents to contribute to college costs according to their ability as demonstrated on the financial aid application. Students are also asked to contribute to the cost of their education through summer jobs and their own assets. After these family resources are considered, students are eligible for grants, scholarships and part-time campus jobs to cover the remaining educational costs.
The counselors at the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office are available to answer your questions. They can tell you more about how Princeton’s need-based financial aid program works and offer additional information on financing a college education.

The Department of Public Safety
The Department of Public Safety (DPS) operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Public Safety staff contribute to a comprehensive and integrated safety and security program in collaboration with the Princeton community. DPS is committed to enhancing the quality of life, learning and working experience at Princeton University, while also maintaining a safe and secure campus.

Public Safety’s philosophy and focus is on community care taking, or providing a safety net for the Princeton campus. While DPS officers respond to emergencies, monitor the flow of traffic on campus, enforce parking regulations and investigate crimes, their primary role is to serve as a helpful resource to the community. Officers are actively engaged with members of the community through the department's Community Policing Initiative (CPI) that allows officers to create an environment of CPI with various student organizations, residential colleges and athletic teams to build relationships and help spread the word of crime prevention.
DPS subscribes to the theory that crime prevention is everyone’s job and urges all members of the University community to report suspicious or unusual activities, following the motto "See something. Say something." DPS also encourages University community members to take steps to ensure their own safety, e.g., locking dorm room doors. DPS publishes an Annual Security Report and Fire Safety Report that outlines steps to enhance safety and security on the Princeton University campus. The report also contains information about crime statistics, a description of programs that are available to community members and what to do if you are the victim of a crime.

Counseling & Psychological Services
Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) is the mental health division of University Health Services and serves as a focal point for students’ mental health concerns and psychological care. Students come to CPS for a range of issues, from mild adjustment difficulties to more serious psychological problems; at times, even the most resilient and self-reliant students have trouble negotiating the stresses of these demanding years and may benefit from speaking with professionals.
CPS staff includes experienced mental health professionals well-versed in late adolescent and young adult development and in the special demands and rigors of the University culture. The staff includes clinical and counseling psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatrists and postgraduate residents in clinical psychology. A range of time-limited psychological and psychiatric services is offered at CPS, including urgent care assessment and crisis intervention, psychological evaluations, individual and group psychotherapy, referral services for ongoing off-campus treatment, campus psycho-education and community consultation. Consistent with UHS's collaborative care model, CPS clinicians often work as members of multidisciplinary teams with other health care professionals within UHS and selectively share relevant student-related information with each other to enhance quality of care. The multidisciplinary teams are dedicated to helping the University community address eating problems, alcohol and other drug concerns and mind-body health issues.
Routine appointments or same-day urgent care consultations may be scheduled in person or by calling 609-258-3285. Students asking to be seen the same day will be triaged by a member of the CPS staff, and a determination will be made as to the appropriate level of care. CPS clinicians are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, during the academic year to respond to urgent psychological and psychiatric concerns. If an after-hours or weekend matter is urgent or pressing and requires prompt attention, a CPS clinician-on-call can be reached through the UHS Infirmary at 609-258-3139 or through the Department of Public Safety at 609-258-1000.
