Parking for ARMA NJ INFORM 2019
Don't forget quarters for meters or use the ParkPrinceton mobileapp. Princeton University is located in the center of town, and parking on and near campus can be very challenging; the area is sometimes congested, and empty spots can be hard to find. We suggest that you plan your parking strategy before you arrive. We are including the main options in the parking details section below and you may follow the links included for more detailed information on each option.

  • Princeton University Visitor Lots: Visitors to campus may park in one of the university’s visitor parking lots(.pdf), Lot 21 and Lot 23. On weekends and evenings (but not overnight), visitors may park in most other numbered lots and garages. View the campus map to identify which parking lot is closest to the campus buildings you are visiting. If you desire free overnight parking in Princeton, please email Anne Marie Phillips ([email protected]) to obtain a pass that will allow you to park in a campus visitor lot overnight.

  • Metered Street Parking: The majority of street parking in the area is metered, and because it is town property, it is monitored and ticketed by the local police (not the university). For this reason we are unable to reserve spots for campus events. Parking meters take payment by credit card, coin, or mobile payment through the ParkPrinceton app (available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play). With the exception of Nassau Street and Charlton Street, local metered parking is mostly all day meters/pay stations that cost 75 cents/hour, although there are some zones in which parking times are limited to 3 hours or less. See the map on https://princetonol.com/parking/ for exact location of different types of parking.

  • Public & Private Parking Garages: There are three parking garages in downtown Princeton that are within walking distance of campus for those who can walk relatively flat routes for 10-20 minutes. Detailed information on these garages is also available at https://princetonol.com/parking/.


We ask that you use legitimate parking spaces and put ample time on the meters - the Town of Princeton tickets all vehicles that violate parking regulations. If you pay with the ParkPrinceton app in most cases, you can “stop parking” and get a refund for the unused time on your meter if you vacate the parking spot before the meter runs out.
