Getting to Campus
Princeton is located between New York and Philadelphia, and is easy to reach by public transportation or by car. On-campus visitor parking is free.
The closest and most conveniently accessed international airport is Newark Liberty International.
The University is easily accessible by train, which runs along the Northeast Corridor line and also stops at the 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. Please note: Dinky train service will be temporarily replaced by bus service from Thursday, October 11 to mid-January 2019 for mechanical upgrades. NJ Transit is providing a replacement bus service aligned with the current Dinky schedules. Visit the Transportation & Parking website to learn more and view the bus timetable.
