Faculty and Staff Options
Princeton takes great pride in being a residential learning community, and the University thus offers many housing opportunities for faculty and staff. They include on- and off-campus apartment and house rentals, short-term housing, and for some eligible faculty and staff, home ownership assistance.
Cafés and Eateries on Campus
If you live close to campus or commute from afar, dining options are plentiful for employees. Most offices have kitchenettes or coffee stations, several cafes dot the campus, and faculty and staff have a special dining room and "tap room" at Prospect House. Nearby Palmer Square has a wide range of dining options morning, noon and night.

Princeton Federal Credit Union was chartered in 1972 by the faculty and staff of Princeton University. The not-for-profit credit union is federally insured and offers its members a full range of financial services.
