Walking directions from Nassau Inn Hotel to Sherrerd Hall (workshop location)
From the Nassau Inn hotel go up to Nassau Street and turn left. Walk down Nassau until you reach Washington and turn right onto Washington. As you walk up Washington you will see the Woodrow Wilson pond across the street on your left. Cross the street and walk alongside the pond, down the stairs, and past two brick buildings. You will see an all-glass building to your right. This building is Sherrerd Hall. Enter the main doors of the building and walk up the staircase to the third floor. Turn left into the hallway and room 306 will be on your right after you pass the open space area.
If you prefer to take the elevator, when you walk in the main doors of Sherrerd Hall, turn left down the first hallway to the back of the building. Take the elevator up the to third floor and exit veering to your right. Go down the hallway and room 306 will be on your left.
Driving Directions and Parking
Please see Princeton’s website for driving directions to Princeton. If you are using a GPS, put in 35 Olden Street, Princeton, NJ. This is the computer science building (which is attached to the Friend Center on the corner of William and Olden). Sherrerd Hall is the all-glass building across the walkway and grass from the Friend Center.
Parking on campus is limited, but visitors may park in Lot 21 or 23. Please see Princeton’s parking website for more information. There is also metered parking along the streets of William, Olden, Prospect, and Nassau. Many (but not all) of the meters on Nassau, Olden and Prospect only cost .40 cents per hour. William Street meters are more expensive.
If traveling by Amtrak, your destination stop should be the Trenton Transit Center or Princeton Junction.
From Trenton, take a NJ Transit train to Princeton Junction, and then you have two options. You can either take a cab to the hotel or workshop location (approximate cost $22) or get on the “Dinky” train (approximate cost $5), which will then take you from Princeton Junction to Princeton’s train station. It is a three-quarter of a mile walk from the Princeton train station to the Nassau Inn.
At Princeton Junction you should be able to get a cab without calling one. If you need to call, here are a few cab companies:
Princeton Junction Taxicab – (609) 799-8633
A Princeton Taxi – (609) 924-7300
Joe’s Princeton Taxi – (609) 436-0707
NJ transit trains:
If you are arriving/departing from Newark Airport, you will need to take an AirTrain to Newark Airport NJ Transit Train Station and buy a ticket to Princeton Junction. The cost is approximately $16.50. The cost of a cab to get to/from campus from Princeton Junction is about $22 (See above). NJ Transit trains run from approximately 4 am to 1 am.
Please make a note of your gate if you are travelling from Princeton Junction back to Newark Airport. You will need to get on the AirTrain from there, and it stops at all the gates.
The best airport to fly into is Newark (EWR), as it is easy to get to campus. Philadelphia Airport is also fairly close, but it is more difficult and time-consuming to get to Princeton. From Philadelphia you will need to hire a car service, or take a train from Philadelphia to Trenton. Once in Trenton, follow the directions above to get from the Trenton Transit Center to Princeton Junction and then to the hotel.
Workshop Meals and RSVP for Dinner
Breakfast and lunch will be provided at the workshop location. There will be a dinner for workshop particpants on Thursday, October 20, 2016, 6 p.m. at Triumph Brewing Company, located at 138 Nassau St, Princeton, NJ 08542, 609-924-7855.

If you have spoken with Nick Feamster and he has agreed to reimburse all or part of your travel expenses, please contact Laura Cummings-Abdo, , in advance of the workshop to provide her with your home address so she can enter you into Princeton’s financial system as a “supplier”. Airfare should be purchased at least 14 days in advance of the workshop to be in price compliance with Princeton’s policies, as we can only reimburse “reasonable” travel expenses. Please note that car rentals will not be reimbursed. If you need help with any travel arrangements, please contact Jean Butcher, at least two weeks prior to the workshop. Further, please make sure you review CITP’s travel policies for reimbursement guidelines.
