South Brunswick Township is a Township in Middlesex County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the township population was 37,734. The township is also referred to as Princeton limits because of its close proximity to Princeton.

South Brunswick was first mentioned on February 28, 1778 in Freeholder minutes as being formed from New Brunswick Township. It was formally incorporated as one of New Jersey's initial group of 104 townships on February 21, 1798. Portions of the township have been taken to form Cranbury Township (March 7, 1872) and Plainsboro Township (April 1, 1919).[4]

The township encompasses the census-designated places of Dayton (2000 Census population of 6,235), Heathcote (4,755), Kendall Park (9,006), Kingston (1,292) and Monmouth Junction (2,721). Deans is an unincorporated area within the Township. Among these, Kingston is (so far) unique as the only Village Center that has been officially designated by the New Jersey State Planning Commission in the township.

The Lawrence Brook, a tributary of the Raritan River, flows through the township.

Kingston's location on the Lenape Assunpink Trail where it crossed the Millstone River was the prime factor in its early prominence. Kingston was by far the most active and important village, being situated on both the heavily traveled King's Road and Millstone River, combining commercial activities of both mills and taverns. The Kingston Village Advisory Committee, jointly appointed by the South Brunswick and Franklin Township Councils, reports to the Township Council on matters of concern to residents of Kingston.[5]
