Getting to Princeton

The University is easily accessible by train, which runs along the Northeast Corridor line and also stops at Newark airport. Both Amtrak and NJ TRANSIT trains stop at Princeton Junction. Travelers can then transfer to a single-car train operated by NJ TRANSIT, known locally as the "Dinky," for the five-minute ride to Princeton Station. The station is located on Alexander Street at the southern end of campus. The walk from Princeton Station to the library is ten to fifteen minutes up a gradual hill.

If you prefer to drive, metered parking is available on Nassau Street and hourly parking is available at the Spring Street Garage on Spring Street in Princeton. University Visitor parking is available at the structure at 148 Fitzrandolph Rd. Please see the University website for more information.
