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 that is attached to 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 Taxi – (609) 672-7072
Princeton Junction Taxicab – (609) 799-8633
A Princeton Taxi – (609) 924-7300
NJ transit trains:
If you are arriving/departing from the Newark Airport, you will need to take an AirTrain to the 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 the 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.
