Travel Information

An excellent transportation network of bus, rail and highways puts Princeton within easy reach (an hour or two) of major urban centers: Philadelphia and Trenton to the southwest, Newark and New York to the northeast. International airports are located in Philadelphia, Newark and New York. Bus and train stations to these cities are adjacent to campus.

Getting to Campus

Visitor Parking

Campus Maps

Bowl 016 is in the basement of Robertson Hall/Woodrow Wilson School. This is a large, white building surrounded by high, square pillars next to a fountain (image). (It is about 300 yards from the Computer Science department.) The entrance on the Prospect Avenue side (farthest from the fountain) will be open. Go in through the revolving door, take an immediate left, and go down the stairs.
