Getting to Princeton University


''By Train

There are two train stations close to the University; Princeton Junction and Princeton Station.

Both Amtrak and NJ TRANSIT operate trains along the Northeast Corridor rail line that stop at Princeton Junction. Only Princeton Station is walking distance to the forum.

  • We recommend you take a taxi from Princeton Junction to the conference. It will take approximately 10 minutes and will cost around $15-20.

Travelers can also transfer to a single-car train operated by NJ TRANSIT, known locally as the "Dinky," for the five-minute ride to Princeton Station. The station is located on Alexander Street at the southern end of campus.

  • If you take the very short commuter train connection from Princeton Junction to Princeton (The Dinky), you can walk to campus. It will take about 20 minutes on foot from Princeton Station “Dinky” to the Computer Science Building/Friend Center.
