For directions to Princeton University, see Driving Directions to Princeton.


Parking Lot 21 on the Princeton University Campus allows visitor parking and is in closest proximity to Guyot Hall. Please see visitor parking for further explanation.

To get to Lot 21, head south on Washington Road and follow for about 3/10 of a mile. Turn left onto Faculty Road and just past Jadwin Gym see sign for entrance for Lot 21. Visitor parking spaces are marked.

If you expect to be on campus for an extended time, we will be happy to obtain a temporary parking permit for you which will allow you to park in other lots on campus. Please contact CMI for assistance. Also, please note that while there are other visitor parking spaces on campus, these are reserved for short term parking while Lot 21 is available for all day visitor parking.

Other Parking Options

Other parking options include the municipal parking lots and garages in downtown Princeton. Parking on Prospect Avenue, adjacent to the Woodrow Wilson School is also an option and very convenient, but most parking here is limited to two hours. (Further down Prospect Avenue are meters with longer period options available.)

Parking in the Spring Street Garage is the best option for those seeking to stay in downtown Princeton. (To get to the Spring Street Garage, turn onto Witherspoon Street off of Nassau Street and within one block on your right is Spring Street; turn onto Spring Street and see Parking Garage within a half a block on your left.)

Please remember that overtime and illegal parking regulations are strictly enforced in municipal lots.
