Planning Your Visit

Princeton's campus is located on 500 acres in the bustling heart of New Jersey. In addition to the daily campus tours and events, many visitors set aside time to explore the region:

Tours & Information Sessions

Graduate school tour group

The Office of Admission holds general admission information sessions throughout the year. You may combine an information session with a student-led campus tour, which is run by the Orange Key Guide Service. The School of Engineering and Applied Science offers tours of the engineering quad during the academic year. 

Our 23-stop, student-led virtual tour of the main campus is available in English, Korean, Mandarin and Spanish and includes 360-degree panorama photos and videos.
