Prior to coming to campus, the Princeton’s Parking and Transportation Services Office asks that you preregister your vehicle. The start and end dates should be the day you are planning your Princeton visit.
Tip: the permit is designed to provide 24-hours of parking from the date and time of arrival. It is recommended that only the start date and time be entered, as the end day/time will be calculated automatically.
