DIRECTIONS AND MAP TO LOT 21 (EAST VISITOR PARKING-PRINCETON STADIUM)
Heading north on Washington Road (away from Route 1), turn right onto Faculty Road. (If you are heading south on Washington Road from Nassau Street/Route 27, turn left onto Faculty Road instead.) After passing Jadwin Gym, turn left onto FitzRandolph Road, and then take the first left turn into Lot 21.
DIRECTIONS AND MAP TO LOT 23 (WEST VISITOR PARKING-ADMISSION)
From Alexander Street: Turn onto Faculty Road (traffic light, gas station), and proceed to the traffic circle. Go three quarters of the way around the circle and turn right onto Elm Drive. At the next traffic circle, go three quarters of the way around and proceed to the parking lot on the left.
From Washington Road: Follow Faculty Road west (turning left if coming from Route 1; right if coming from Nassau Street) to the traffic circle. Go a quarter of the way around the circle, and turn right onto Elm Drive. At the next traffic circle, go three quarters of the way around and proceed to the parking lot on the left.
DIRECTIONS AND MAP TO E-QUAD WITH METERED PARKING
SEAS is located on the corner of Olden Street and Prospect Street (K3 on the campus map). If you are using a GPS navigation system to find the Engineering Quadrangle (E-Quad), please enter “41 Olden Street, Princeton, NJ.”
Limited street metered parking is also available on the street in Princeton Borough, including nearby Prospect Street. We strongly recommend that you bring plenty of quarters with you, as the Princeton Borough aggressively patrols for expired meters.
CAMPUS SHUTTLE SERVICE TO E-QUAD
A free campus shuttle operates from Lots 21 and 23 during weekdays until early evening. The University’s TigerTransit transportation system operates frequently, and is wheelchair accessible.
From Lot 21, let the shuttle driver know that you’d like the “Friend Center” stop, which is located across the street from the E-Quad.
From Lot 23, exit on the “Clio” stop, which is also the Undergraduate Admission stop, and then walk over to the EQuad.
