Getting to Princeton University
Princeton University is located in the heart of the lovely town of Princeton, NJ, nestled almost equidistant between New York City and Philadelphia. NJ Transit and some Amtrak trains stop in Princeton Junction, where you can take a small NJ Transit train, fondly known as The Dinky, right onto the campus.
There are three airports convenient to Princeton.
Trenton-Mercer Airport (TTN) is less than 15 miles from Princeton. Frontier Airlines flies from several major cities to TTN. Uber and taxis are available from the airport to the hotel or campus.
Newark Liberty Airport (EWR) is 40 miles from Princeton. NJ Transit trains run from the airport to Princeton Junction to Princeton University campus. There are shuttles available as well.
Philadelphia Airport (PHL) is 50 miles from Princeton. It is possible to take the SEPTA regional trains to Trenton, then the NJ Transit train to Princeton or a shuttle from the airport to the hotels or campus.
The Princeton University guest travel page provides links to more information about air, rail and ground transportation, including reduced rates for Princeton visitors: https://travel.princeton.edu/guests
Some Amtrak Acela trains stop in Trenton (all stop in Philadelphia and New York). All regular Amtrak trains on the northeast corridor stop in Trenton and some stop directly in Princeton Junction. NJ Transit trains run from Princeton Junction to Princeton University (and from New York or Trenton to Princeton Junction). You can check out the Amtrak schedule online at https://www.amtrak.com/home
There is plenty of free parking on the Princeton University campus.
Tours and Pre and Post Conference Fun
The Princeton University campus is beautiful and historic, so leave yourself a little time to walk around. You can go on an Orange Key tour or take the Robin Izzo EHS special tour after lunch on Friday.
The registration form will have a checkbox to indicate whether you would be interested in a tour of the Princeton University Plasma Physics Lab. This is our DOE facility that is home to the National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX), a fusion reactor. Depending on the number of people interested, we will schedule this for Thursday or Friday afternoon.
The Princeton University Art Museum will have three special exhibits: Remember Me: Shakespeare and His Legacy, Contemporary Stories: Revisiting South Asian Narratives, and Epic Tales from India: Paintings from The San Diego Museum of Art.
New York and Philadelphia are both just a train ride away.
Interested in a Broadway show? Join Robin Izzo, Madelyn Miller and Erik Talley for an 8 PM Broadway musical. We are thinking of seeing Waitress, but we're open to suggestions. Robin will be traveling back to Princeton after the show and can take you back to your hotel, or you could check into a hotel in Times Square or thereabouts and extend your stay. It's a short trip from New York City to the Newark Airport.
